It’s Tuesday, that means it’s time for a bookish favorites posts. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Meeghan over on Meeghan Reads and is quite simple: check out the topic and write a post with your picks.
It’s still October and we’re getting closer to Halloween, so today we’ll discuss some great books featuring ghosts!
#1 The Raven Cycle Books
I know I talked about these books about 700 times before but I just never get tired of The Raven Cycle. We meet more than just one ghost over the course of the novels before actually kicking off the series with Blue watching the ghosts of people who will die within the next year.
#2 The Shining
You can’t do October/Halloween without some Stephen King. Today, I’ll go with the Shining. The ghosts in that book really gave me the creeps.
#3 A Christmas Carol
This is probably one of the most famous ghost stories of all time! Ebenezer Scrooge meets the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future. Even if you haven’t read the book, you probably saw at least one of the numerous adaptations!
#4 Turning of the Screw
Sooooo, I actually haven’t read this one yet. However, the Netflix adaptation came out recently and I binged that one in a heartbeat. Now I’m super curious to check out the base material!
#5 Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
Okay, so hear me out. I know that technically this isn’t really a ghost story, but the vibe is just so ghost-y that I’m putting it on my list. Also, the kids in that book are actually really close to being ghosts so – yeah – fight me!
