Want to be scared? Meet a ghost or two in:

My Top Five Ghost Books
(in random order, click the images to view summaries and/or my reviews)


Beloved by Toni Morrison: Slavery and a baby ghost haunting the mother – true horror.

The Castle of Otranto

The Castle of Otranto by Horace Walpole: A castle haunted by a giant knight ghost-in-armour…uh-oh!

Blue Dahlia (In The Garden trilogy #1)     Black Rose (In the Garden trilogy, #2)    Red Lily (In the Garden trilogy #3)

In the Garden (Blue Dalia, Black Rose, Red Lily) trilogy by Nora Roberts: Nothing compares to a wrath of a ghost of an ill-treated mistress who can possess people at will.

The Winter Ghosts

The Winter Ghosts by Kate Mosse: The Pyrenean Mountains, the spirits of the wronged people seeking a way to reveal their tragedy – a sad and beautiful story.

Wake Unto Me

Wake Unto Me by Lisa Cach: A ghost who isn’t a ghost and not-a-ghost who might be a ghost, and then there is a real ghost. Confusing? Go read the book, it all makes sense.

Actually, go read all these books. They are amazing. What about you? Do you have a favourite ghost book? Feel free to let me know about it in the comments.

  1. What a fun post! Obviously, I need to read more - I've only read the 1st one on the list!! Hmmm... will need to remedy that.

    like your yummy photos -- reminded me of the pumpkin pancakes I made for breakfast this morning. :)

  2. Great post! I love ghost stories and pumpkin pie is one of the most marvelous substances on earth. :)

  3. The books ALL sound really good!
    And I think I got a little drool on my keyboard from staring at that pic of the candied apples for too long!!!! They have a touristy place near where I am that makes them like the ones in the pic and more, all different toppings and such, haven't been in forever, so need to go now!

  4. Wow- look at those mouth is drooling...:D

    I love this season...

  5. I read the Winter was very good. I hate horror story's but I do enjoy a good ghost story if its not to frightening..:D


Don't hesitate to drop me a few strange new words! I'd love to hear what you think!
