    Default Need a good ghost story

    I usually enjoy "true" hauntings which turns out to a series of short stories. But I'm up for a some fiction too. Any suggestions?

    I really enjoyed The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters. It's a fiction story that will leave you guessing.

    The Restorer by Amanda Stevens. P H E N O M E N A L. One of the best books I've ever read. If you like ghost stories and mysteries, you'll like it. It was really good.
    Amanda recently signed a deal with ABC for a TV series based on her book(s) - the second comes out either this winter or next year, I can't remember off the top of my head. But seriously, I can't sing her praises enough.

    A different kind of ghost story I read lately was "Wintergirls" by Laurie Anderson. It's a YA book about a girl with a eating disorder. Very creepy. Also, very ghostly.
    Straight to **** (Book one in the Lilith Straight series) The moment Lilith Straight dies, the Devil appears to claim her soul and cash in on a longtime family curse. Now, Lilith has no choice but to work for him. The job is bad, the boss is worse, and she can’t imagine how she’ll explain her new reincarnation to her eight-year-old daughter. But then an arrogant, yet oh so yummy, incubus shows up…and **** heats up just a little more.

    I second this one. Waters is great at creating atmosphere and leaving you rethinking at the end!

    I did, and it was. Although I have no money in my budget for a new book, I was looking for #2 in the series. It isn't out yet, if anyone is wondering, but there is a prequel called "The Abandoned." Has anyone read it?

    Try Cold Summer Nights, which is based upon a true story that still haunts people to this day. Oh, and Joe Hill's Heart-Shaped Box is awesome too
