The Haunting of Gillespie House by Darcy Coates
Source: Goodreads

Elle is going to live in Mr and Mrs Gillespie’s house for some time so as to look after it as the couple are going to town. Elle is so excited as is eager to discover the ancient gothic style of the old house. She finds the house to be very dim-lighted and old with its creaking floorboards and strange sounds.

Elle decides to visit the upper part of the house. On reaching, she enters a large room filled with old-fashioned gothic furniture covered in a large and dusty white cloth. All of a sudden, the door snaps close behind Elle. She is surprised as she is supposed to be the only one in the house and terribly afraid at the same time. As she slowly creeps downstairs, not daring to make any sound, she calls Mrs Gillespie to tell her about what happened but only receives a response saying that the house is old and any strange noise can be expected. Still very suspicious, Elle switches off her phone.

Things start getting stranger and stranger when Elle sees an eye between two shelves in the library, strange scratchings against the wood at night, dreams that seem to real to be ordinary dreams and the mysterious room, the only room that has been locked in the house.

My ratings:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

That was a real horror story. I mean it was so mysterious and filled with suspense and the last thing that happens in the story is the most interesting part and it makes your bone chill. I really love Elle’s character, that amount of bravery she has and that air of I-can-do-it. Beautifully written!

…maybe you are wondering why I have posted two times a week, well, it is because I have practically disabled Youtube off my phone for a week and I am still trying to keep up that challenge. I know it is slightly hard for me and I did break it off in Thursday and I have restarted. So no Youtube till Thursday afternoon for me. Duh!

Thanks for reading!

P.S. Maybe next review will be The Haunting of Rookward House by Darcy Coates.

    1. Even I am terrified of horror movies and don’t think I will ever watch any but for some reason I love horror stories😂😂. I think it is because I can imagine the ‘horror thing’ in my head. I seriously don’t know why I enjoy horror though.
      Have a beautiful day!

Welcome to my book review blog. I am a NetGalley professional reader. I take part in quite a few book clubs on Goodreads. My first love is Horror, but in the past few years I have developed an infatuation with Fantasy. I believe starred reviews do not give the full scope of a review, which is why you won't see them here. Happy Reading!
