#BookadayUK 4: Gave Me Goosebumps

I read very little horror, because pretty much everything gives me goosebumps. So, this one is sort of hard for me.


I'm going to go with Shirley Jackson in general, because she is so deft with psychological horror that she always makes me shiver. Also, I love her.
