Since it's October, I thought I pick a paranormal creature to go along with this week's topic. Which is actually about Favorite Authors on a X genre. I picked "Ghosts" as my genre for the week, because I hardly hear anything about a really good ghost story. So here are a few I chose and I am sure the others will approve of. I'm pretty sure there are a few books that I missed.
It took me awhile to find this book on Goodreads but I finally did. I read this back in middle school and fell in love with the many ghosts in this book. I was in the library just looking at random books and saw the cover of this one. The ghost's odd looks caught my attention. This book isn't just about one type of ghost, like Casper the friendly ghost. This book has many different types of ghosts, who all have different types of talents or jobs they do in our world. I love this so much, and will most likely pick up this book again, and probably this month.
Truth be told, this is the only book I ever read by Lauren Oliver. I really need to read her YA books, though. Po is our ghost in this book and he helps Liesl on a big adventure. This book was just beyond amazing and can't wait to read her other middle grade book, the Spindlers.
If you haven't pick up this book yet, you really should. The story is just simply fun but the really great thing about these books, are the details in the hardcover editions.
I didn't think love could exist after death but Tara has changed my mind. I picked up this book after readin Sarah's review on it. And she agrees, this is one of her favorite ghost stories ever. It's touching and yet dark at the same time, and Arise, the sequel, gets even darker. I love Amelia and love how Tara can write from a ghost perspective when it comes to love.
Come on, it's Neal Shusterman! If you haven't read anything by him, you are truly missing out. This book in particular is about kids who don't move on to the afterlife. They are actually stuck in between, in a place called Everlost. The two main characters were such fun to read about and if I died, I kind of want to go to Everlost then somewhere else.
This one I am actually starting right now, but it's really good so far. It's about a girl who was murder, and is getting revenge on her murderer by haunting him. Velveteen kicks a**. I'm not that far in the book but I can already tell that I like her.
If you haven't read Anna yet, this is the perfect time to pick it up. I actually see a lot of people picking this one up during the month of October. While most people hear it's a really scary story, well that's not the full truth. Yes, there are some scary parts but most of it's not too bad. What really drawed me to the story was the main character and his infatuation with Anna, a murderous ghost. Yeah, it's weird.
A popular girl dead and doesn't know where to go. And a loner, who can see, hear, and touch ghost, trying to hide his secret. You know these two are bound to mix up, but it so much better when you read about it. Especially, if you read the entire series.
I am also just starting this one, but so far it's really interesting. The main character can see ghosts and helps them move on. I also see this love triangle going but too bad one of the guys is dead. I am really curious to see how the series continues on like this.
A really touching, dark story. Our main character doesn't even know she's talking to ghosts and you know before her. Elizabeth twisted a very mysterious, murder tale into a very heartbreaking story. Once you read it, you can't stop thinking about it. Well, at least I can't.
