Spooktacular Giveaway Hop


It's that time of year again!

For last year's Spooktacular Giveaway Hop, I paid homage to my favorite supernatural character - the vampire. This year, I'm going to be looking closer at a different character. One that, honestly, hasn't compelled me much until recently.

Ghosts



When I started compiling my list of examples of books that feature ghosts prominently, I realized the appear in many more of my favorite stories than I had realized. One of my favorite series - the Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost - includes ghosts not as main characters but in a supporting role. Other series, like Jeri Smith-Ready's Shade series puts ghosts in a starring role. Ghosts can be helpful, like in the Charley Davidson series. Or remorseful like in Aprilynne Pike's Life After Theft.

So, for this year's Spooktacular Giveaway Hop, I'm offering any book you like that prominently features ghosts in some way (as long as the Book Depository ships to you).

So, if you're interested, you know what to do! Fill out the Rafflecopter, then keep on hopping!

Jessica @ a GREAT read said...

I don’t have a favorite book that features ghosts. I usually stay far away from those types of books. But there is a series I recently found that does have ghosts in it and it sounds so good! So I would say that Downside Ghosts Series by Stacia Kane will be my favorite book that has ghosts featured in it. Cannot wait to read this series!!!

Stephen King's Joyland. Thanks! :)

So far, I've read many that featured ghosts as small characters, but Anna Dressed in Blood was the only one with a ghost as a main character. BTW new follower via GFC. Hope you find time to hop on over to Twinja Book Reviews

Kathleen said...

I think Help for the Haunted: A Novel by John Searles is a good read. I'm always stumped when a giveaway asks for a favorite book. I read SO MANY, it's always hard to come up with just one on the spur of the moment, especially when I'm doing a hop and I want to be honest, original, and QUICK.. =) Thanks so much for the giveaway!
