Top Ten Tuesday: Getting the Ghost

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is...

Getting the Ghost!


This week, we have a halloween freebie. Everyone knows I mostly read contemporaries, but I have encountered some ghosts along the way. These are all YA books I really enjoyed, which feature ghosts in some way. 

Have you read any ghost books?
Let us know in the comments!

  2. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is one I'd like to read at some point... I've been curious since I saw the movie trailer (but I haven't watched the movie yet either).

    1. I have not read the newest book, but I read the original three and enjoyed them very much. I have not seen the film either, but I know thre were some changes, combining characters and whatnot.

    1. I was so sad when Hawkins had to abandon the spinoff. I was hoping she would come back to it someday, but she has not

  4. “I got a rock.” Hahaha. I got raisins and tiny toothpaste from a house once. Not cool. Long Way Down is on my TBR list. I might have to add Watch Over Me too. I’ve seen a lot of good reviews of it lately.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. We didn't do door-to-door in Jacksonville, so my daughter was very excited to go trick-or-treating for the first time, and at the dentist's house, the kids got toothpaste. They were so mad. Long Way Down was powerful. I heard the audio is great as Reynolds narrates it himself.

    1. That and the football thing are what makes me related to CB. The Raven Cycle was good, though, I had to acclimate to Steifvater's style.

  6. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children was such a fun read and I can't wait to get back into the series and read the other books as well. Did you read all the books in the series? :)

  7. I forgot that The Raven Boys had ghosts! If I was doing this prompt that one, Echoes Between Us and The Sun Down Motel would have made the list for sure!

    1. These were all light on the paranormal side. I don't get too scary in my reading.

  9. I like ghost stories, but I prefer them to be spooky, not terrifying! These are all totally my speed. I've read a couple of them and several more of them are on my TBR list.

    Happy TTT!

    1. I have read stories that a bit spooky. You know, give me a bit of goosebumps. But I'm with you, no terrifying stuff.

  10. Charlie Brown... I watch this one every year.

    You remind me that I need to read Miss Peregrine's and How to Hang A Witch from my stack.

    1. CB was such a big part of my childhood. A classic! I thought the How to Hang a Witch books were good. I loved the way Mather integrated history into the story.

    1. I know you love your Raven boys. Long Way Down is very different in the way the ghosts are used, and it's just such a powerful and emotional story. I hope you enjoy it

  14. The cover for Now Entering Addamsville is calling my name -- I don't know if I can say why, but there's just something about the house that makes me want to knw more.

  15. I still need to read that one by Upperman. I love her. When I think of YA + ghosts i think of Echoes Between Us by Katie McGarry.

    1. I felt there were spooky parts in Echoes, but I didn't include it because there weren't really ghosts.

    1. Definitely very atmospheric, the entire series. I hope you get to both Long Way Down and Wicked Deep. They are very different books, but both so good.

  18. Adamsville was almost on my list for this week as books I wanted to read! I have read and liked The Wicked Deep, Long Way Down, and Watch Over Me! Great choices!

    1. Addamsville had this great Supernatural feel to it, and I could see it being a series. The very end left the door W I D E open for that.
