Almost everyone likes a thrill every once and a while. While I don’t love horror novels, I do like ghost stories! And sometimes, they come unexpected. I’ve read a few books in the last couple years that I thought were going to be about witches or mermaids, but ended up being ghost stories! Color me thrilled.
As Halloween is tomorrow, there’s still a little time for spooks and thrills! If you’re keen for a ghost story, may I suggest nine of the ones I’ve read recently? I enjoyed them all.

Anna Dressed in Blood / The legend of a local ghost ends up joining the protagonist to find peace.
The Wicked Deep / Three sister ghosts, labelled witches, seek revenge from a town.
The Prince of Mist / Siblings try to free the spirit of the little boy who drowned in their home.
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark / This one speaks for itself! Classic scary stories from my childhood.
