Friday Finds : Ariel by Sylvia Plath

 

7928877ARIEL
by Sylvia Plath
Edition : Hardcover (81 pages)
Publisher : Faber and Faber (May 2010)
Original Published : 1965

Ariel was the second book of Sylvia Plath’s poetry to be published, and was originally published in 1965, two years after her death by suicide. The poems in Ariel, with their free flowing images and characteristically menacing psychic landscapes, marked a dramatic turn from Plath’s earlier Colossus poems.

This looks intriguing. Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar is also on my TBR list, well, for quite some time now.

THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE
by Shirley Jackson
Edition : Paperback (246 pages)
Publisher : Penguin Books (October 2009)
First Published : 1959

Hill House stood abandoned, six miles off the road. Four people came to learn its secrets – Dr Montague, an occult scholar; Luke, a spendthrift heir; Theodora, escaping a love affair; and Eleanor, who is lonely and vulnerable – to the house.

It’s my first Shirley Jackson. I’ve been seeing this book for a while and I’m hearing good things about it. I got curious so I ordered it two days ago and it came today in the morning. I love the cover of this book and I’m excited to read it.

I was in our local library this week and luckily, they are having a second-hand book sale. And I bought almost half of the english books (which are not really a lot) they have. I think the Fifty Shades Trilogy by E.L. James was the only english books left but I didn’t buy it because I already have my copy. I also went to the bookstore this week and I bought a new classic book.

24611587SLASHER GIRLS & MONSTER BOYS
by April Genevieve Tucholke

Edition: Hardcover (400 pages)
Publisher: Dial Books (August 2015)

A host of the sharpest young adult authors come together in this collection of terrifying tales and psychological thrillers. Each story draws from a mix of literature, film, television, or even music to offer something new and fresh and unsettling. Even better? After you’ve teased out each tale’s references, satisfy your curiosity at the end, where the inspiration is revealed. There are no superficial scares here. These are stories that will make you think even as they keep you on the edge of your seat. From bloody horror, to the supernatural, to unnerving, all-too-possible realism, this collection has something for anyone looking for an absolute thrill.

I love terrifying tales and thrillers so I think this book is perfect for me. Also, I haven’t read any books from these authors so I think this is a good start.

Feel free to share your Friday Finds. Happy Friday!

Series : The Remnant Chronicles #1
Edition : Hardcover (489 pages)
Publisher : Henry Holt and Co. (July 2014)

A princess must find her place in a reborn world.
She flees on her wedding day.
She steals ancient documents from the Chancellor’s secret collection.
She is pursued by bounty hunters sent by her own father.
She is Princess Lia, seventeen, First Daughter of the House of Morrighan.

The Kingdom of Morrighan is steeped in tradition and the stories of a bygone world, but some traditions Lia can’t abide. Like having to marry someone she’s never met to secure a political alliance.

Fed up and ready for a new life, Lia flees to a distant village on the morning of her wedding. She settles in among the common folk, intrigued when two mysterious and handsome strangers arrive—and unaware that one is the jilted prince and the other an assassin sent to kill her. Deceptions swirl and Lia finds herself on the brink of unlocking perilous secrets—secrets that may unravel her world—even as she feels herself falling in love.
