Seven of the best haunted house books

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog Ashley Brooke Roberts tagged seven of the best haunted house books, including:
The Shining, by Stephen King.

Okay, so the Overlook Hotel isn’t a house per se, but it sure as hell is haunted. We’ve all seen the movie, but have you read the book? Way creepier, and offering way more history on the world’s worst hotel. True story: my best friend’s mom put this book in a Ziploc bag and kept it in the freezer while reading it because it scared her so much.
Read about another book on the list.

The Shining is among Jake Kerridge's top ten Stephen King books, Amanda Yesilbas and Charlie Jane Anders's top ten horror novels that are scarier than most movies, Charlie Higson's top ten horror books, and Monica Ali's best books.
