Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week is "Top Ten Books for People Who Like X Book". Each week they will post a new top ten list that one of our bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All they ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post and add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists. If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

Instead of doing a specific book I think I'll do Top Ten Books for people who like ghost stories.

So there are many types of ghost stories these ones are not scary ones. The ghost are either friendly or at least I didn't find them too scary.
1. Liesl & Po - Lauren Oliver (my review)
A sweet story about a ghost who befriends a girl to help her life get better.

2. Radiance - Alyson Noël (my review)
In this case, the ghost is the main character. In the series she has to help other ghosts cross over. The boy in Radiance could be creepy if you get scared easily I suppose, but he seems harmless enough.

3. The Hollow - Jessica Verday (my review)
A nice tale about haunts around Sleepy Hollow.

4. Beautiful Creatures - Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl (my review)
A nice southern gothic novel without much scary stuff happening. A very good read.

5. The Graveyard Book - Neil Gaiman (my review)
This one has friendly ghosts but a frightening killer.

Another type of ghost story are the ones that give you chills. Goosebumps. Things that just creep you out. 
6. Hex Hall - Rachel Hawkins (my review)
This one sort of has a scary ghost type in it. Would make you not want to go here. Possibly.

7. The Prince of Mist - Carlos Ruiz Zafón (my review)
Not only is there the creepy Prince of Mist, but there are some creepy clown statues too. I suppose if clowns don't creep you out all you have is the ghost, and no sense. ;)

8. Anna Dressed in Blood- Kendare Blake (my review)
So Anna not necessarily super scary, but super tough and will rip you to pieces...seriously.

9. The Name of the Star - Maureen Johnson (my review)
London haunts, Jack the Ripper lots of mysterious murders. Seriously this book was amazing, and may make you weary of talking to stranger.

10. Cryer's Cross - Lisa McMann (my review)
Holy crap. This one has some freaky shit going on.  If this one doesn't make it hard for you to look at a school desk the same way...I don't know what will creep you out.

So this is just a small section of ghost novel that I would recommend if that's a subject you enjoy reading about. You can check out my Goodreads shelf here which has more recommendations and books I found disappointing. If there are any great novels you recommend, let me know in the comments :) Happy Reading!
