Favorite Ghost Stories
I’ve been having a great time sharing ghost stories for the past few months as I counted down the days until the release of my novel The Ghosts of Aquinnah, so I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite ghost stories (either movies or books) here at Gwen’s today. Thank you for hosting me, Gwen!
I have to include a quick note that Gwen’s Givin’ Up the Ghost definitely has a spot on this list. I loved it and look forward to reading her sequel soon!
Here are five other favorites:
Ghost Story by Peter Straub
I haven’t read this in years but it terrified me way back when!
Had me at John Cusack :D
A Christmas Carol
Probably nothing I can say about this that hasn’t already been said a million times
The Sixth Sense
I saw this back when it first came out and no, I didn’t see the twist coming at all.
To this day, I am scared to death of The Overlook Hotel.
Are you a fan of ghost stories? If so, what are your favorites?
Thank you again, Gwen!
A brilliant flash of light transcends through time.
Another freezes a cloaked figure within a frame of salty mist as waves crash against a rocky shore. Her harrowing expression shadows the beacon to a pinprick.
By the next blaze, she is gone. Only the lighthouse remains.
Hannah’s eyes blink in step with each heartbeat. Images of her deceased parents and Martha’s Vineyard explode like firecrackers inside her mind.
She shakes her head.
For weeks this eerie woman dressed in nineteenth century garb has been haunting my webcam, but tonight she stared into my soul.
Who is she? ...
Casting aside months of research on historic lighthouses, Hannah drives to the coast and boards a ferry.
What is the strange connection she has to this mysterious woman suspended in time?
Hannah finds out.
But, it’s not at all what she expects...
Hannah unravels a century old murder.
