With Halloween fast approaching, there is no better time to sit down with your favorite hot drink and start reading a really scary book. And what could be more frightening than those paranormal entities that go bump in the night otherwise known as ghosts.
Whether it’s a singular sighting of a lonely spirit or a hotel full of malevolent apparitions, there are hundreds of novels about ghosts to choose from but only a handful that will keep you up at night.
In an effort to have you turning on lights and looking behind corners, we here at the “Tampa Bay Books Examiner” have created our own list of “5 Favorite Novels about Ghosts”.
We’d also like to mention that a lot of these novels have been made (and sometimes re-made) into extremely popular movies. However, the differences between film and book are many and significant, so we hope you will try these books, one or all, and tell us what you think. We are fairly certain you won’t be disappointed but don’t blame us if you have to sleep with the lights on for a while.
