Hope you're enjoying this month's focus on Halloween. Today, we are sharing Top 5… Books with Ghosts. Since my early Scooby-Doo days, I've loved a good ghost story. How about you?

Here are my choices:

When I first got into blogging, Jamieson Wolf was an author I followed. I think this is the first book of his that I read. Very creepy. Neglected by her parents, Mave Mallory goes to live with her grandmother, where she plays with ghosts in the attic and discovers a mysterious mirror her grandmother warns her never to touch. Or course, she doesn't listen, and is pulled into another world. 

This is a cute chapter book series. Two books were published in 2008. They are still available for purchase. Kimble is the ghost of a young girl who appears to Katie and asks her to help discover what happened to Kimble's mother. In the second book of the series, Katie finds a magic coupon that can turn Kimble human again. 

You knew this series was going to make an appearance, right? In the first book of the Tradd Street series, Realtor Melanie Middleton inherits this historic house on Tradd Street... and all its ghosts. When writer Jack Trenholm tries to woo Melanie because he believes diamonds from the secret Confederate Treasury are hidden in the house, he catches the attention of a hostile ghost. 

This is a touching ghost story romance. After her husband is killed in the line of duty, Nicole must pick up the pieces of her shattered life and figure out her next steps and care for her children. When strange things start happening, she is sure her deceased husband is trying to communicate with her.

Ghosts of Salem: Haunts of the Witch City takes readers through Salem's history. It also shares the opinions of residents about the ghosts who are said to call Salem home. It's been years since I read it, but I remember finding it a fascinating read.

What are some of your favorite books with ghosts?
