Recommendations for a good ghost book ??
I remember having bought a collection of ghost short stories (I can’t find it in my badly organized book shelves) but your favourite bookshop or library might have one in store! I think it was from the oldest to the most recent account of ghost stories… That could be a good start… Otherwise you might try Wuthering Heights…
yoyu can buy ghost book of RL Stiyne
Miss Peregrines home for peculiar children
Just asking what may sound like a stupid question : is it only a children’s book or can adults read it too?
I didn’t think it was for children, maybe YA though
OK… Thanks for the tip
I’m reading The Broken Girls by Simone St. James right now and it’s really good. Mystery/ghost story with some creepy parts in it that have actually made me look up from reading to make sure I was alone lol….
Ghost Story by Peter Straub. Older but good.
That is one of the creepiest books I’ve ever read. It seemed so real!
@Karla I felt the same way. I even enjoyed the movie.
The Ghost in Love, Jonathan Carroll. Not scary but charming, funny and sweet.
Thank you for the synopsis. I like friendly ghost stories but not scary stories. I’ll soon be reading your recommendation.
Have you read “The Ghost & Mrs. Muir” by R.A. Dick? You might enjoy the book.
@Kristie no, I did see the movie but great suggestion!
The Haunting of Maddy Clare by Simone St. James
Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn Ward
Diviners by Libba Bray is super very scary https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/7728889-the-diviners
The Name of the Star (Shades of London series) by Maureen Johnson is also excellent. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/9802372-the-name-of-the-star
Better than A Christmas @Carol
The Canterville Ghost, Oscar Wilde The turn of the screw, Henry James
I just started The Last to See Me by M Dressler. Not far enough in the have a recommendation yet.
Ghost Night by Heather Graham has ghosts, pirates and shipwrecks. Lots of fun and a sneaky little murder mystery.
Very old book – The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson. Heart Shaped Box by Joe Hill.
The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
The Haunting of Rookward House
I liked – The Ghost of Tarawera & The Ghost of Young Nicks head both by Sue Copsey. They are teen books so they are a quick and easy read.
Second Glance – Jodi Picoult
Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders
