Ghost Hunters: True Stories From the World's Most Famous Demonologists | Ed Warren, Lorraine Warren, Robert David Chase
Mehso-so

Work like this makes skeptics more skeptical. This should be read as nothing more than a work of fiction. The only reason I didn't rate this as a pick is because it's so full of occurrences that just canNOT happen. Also, it was pretty laughable when Ed Warren said Big Foot is a tulpa and how Lorraine communicated with the creature through psychic powers. I didn't rate this book as pan or bail, because at the very least, I was entertained.

Bk5 of my #libraryhaul is another #NFNov read. I‘ve been fascinated by hauntings since I was really young, I had an experience in my house when I was about 11yrs old. Since then, I‘ve read anything I can get my hands on, watched so many movies & documentaries & been on a few ghost tours. One of my fave shows was Ghosthunters, they did episodes in most of the places in this book, most memorable, especially the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum.

ljuliel Did you know Ghosthunters is back on ? I don‘t get cable, but I saw it advertised on YouTube. Grant is in charge of that, with all new people. Jason started a new show called Ghost Nation and he has Steve and Tango with him. 3h
Wife Once I think I saw a ghost when taking a test in the middle of a full classroom. I was keeping my eyes on my test, but in my peripheral vision, I saw someone walk by and leave the room. But then realized that the door was closed and I didn‘t hear it open or close. Creeped me out!👻 🚪 3h
Bklover The Trans Allegheny Lunatic Asylum just sounds like it would be haunted! 3h

Lizpixie @ljuliel is it? That was the show that I finally made a bogus itunes account for years ago coz it wasn‘t available in Aus. I knew there had to be a reason for Grant leaving, the excuse they gave was so flimsy. I never liked Jason much but I adore Steve & Tango. I‘ll have to track both down, thank you!🙌 1h
Lizpixie @Wife that sounds awesome. I‘ve had two definite encounters, the 1st was in my bedroom when I was 11 I think, I was sitting on our trundle bed with a full drink, heard our dog under the bunk, put the drink down & turned, knocking over the cup. I heard a clink turned back & the drink was on top of the dressing table. With no one else in the house! Plus all the cold spots & feelings of being watched. 1h
Lizpixie The 2nd was at the Quarantine Station on Sydney Harbour which I‘ve told here a few times. 1h
Lizpixie @Bklover it does doesn‘t it? So does St Albans Sanitarium & Waverley Hills Sanitarium. 1h
ljuliel I‘m guessing Grant left because of Jason . I know a few times on the shows , they‘d bicker a bit about how mean Jason had been to one of the others. I always liked Steve and Tango. They‘re really funny together , but now that it‘s just them and Jason, they‘ll probably try to behave a bit more. He‘s a grouch. I believe in ghosts too. Positively. 👍🏼 22m

Gad's Hall | Norah Lofts

It had been years since I read Norah Lofts. This one was a bit slow, but enjoyable just the same. Im picking up The Haunting Of Gad‘s Hall tomorrow. Two timelines...one from the 1840s and the other, I‘m guessing circa 1970s..one house, two different families. Something tragic happened in house, can‘t wait to see what exactly the more modern family experiences.

MrBook Nice! 😻😻😻 2d

I'm such a sucker for Schwab. She's the master of word and I will read whatever she pens on paper. Throw any genre, any age level, any topic at her and she will conquer.

The City of Ghosts series has a parallel feel to The Archived but I still love it. Although this is a middle grade series, book 1 felt a bit more intricate and layered than book 2. I enjoy the characters, dialogue, flow and world building. Bring on book 3!

I'm enjoying this so far, although it seems like lots of other people found the characters annoying. It reminds me a good bit of some of the Barbara Michaels paranormals.

🎧 book 2 ... great audiobook! I like these books so much that I bought the hardcover of book one for my niece for her birthday. She‘s 5 but her brother is 10 & their mom loves Harry Potter which came up again in this book. I think it‘ll be a fun family book. The story is still like a young Veronica Mars crossed with the Ghost Whisperer. This book takes place in Paris where book 1 was in Scotland. Think ... catacombs 😈 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️3/4

Daisey I really enjoyed the first and have the second, but I haven‘t had a chance to read it yet. Glad to hear it was good as well. 5d
Twainy It‘s very similar to book 1 & I can‘t wait to see what city/country will be next 😊 5d

I‘m not a romance fan and this was kinda like that... for a while. Then my interest grew as I started to wonder about narrator reliability and what other possibilities could exist... full review at ScrappyMags.com

Reecaspieces I agree with your review...totally. There is just something about it that keeps you reading. 5d

The supernatural element served no real purpose to the plot. Seems to me to only be a way for the author to distinguish his novel from all the other WWI novels hitting the market recently. Ignoring the ghosts, the mystery was... ok.

JazzFeathers I quite agree. I really liked it in the beginning, but then everything went... nowhere, really 😟 5d
