Author Topic: What are your fave books in each genre? Jan 2012: Ghosts/Spirits  (Read 3432 times)

Offline Suike

Here is the monthly thread where everyone can pop in and list their favorite book from a different genre every month.

This month's poll winner is:

Ghosts/Spirits

...they don't have to be strictly YA or Adult. Just list your favorites and maybe a reason why or a quick summary. (The books do not have to have both species, can be either or both)

I am going to include a poll at the top so everyone can vote for which genre to feature next week. (I included an "other" option...please specify in a post which genre. Thanks)

 Enjoy!!

I haven't read many books in this genre but ended up liking:

Hereafter by Tara Hudson
Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsay

Can't wait to see what everyone's favorite books are in this genre so I can get some ideas to add to my reading list.

My favs in this genre is the Juliet Blackwell Haunted House Renovation series. Aside from that, I like Shattered Souls but not a lot. Can't remember any other books of this category.
Have you checked this out yet?

The Shade series by Jeri Smith-Ready.


Love ties them together.
Death can't tear them apart.

Best. Birthday. Ever. At least, it was supposed to be. With Logan's band playing a critical gig and Aura's plans for an intimate after-party, Aura knows it will be the most memorable night of her boyfriend's life. She never thought it would be his last.
Logan's sudden death leaves Aura devastated. He's gone.
Well, sort of.
Like everyone born after the Shift, Aura can see and hear ghosts. This mysterious ability has always been annoying, and Aura had wanted nothing more than to figure out why the Shift happened so she can undo it. But not with Logan’s violet-hued spirit still hanging around. Because dead Logan is almost as real as ever. Almost.
It doesn't help that Aura’s new friend Zachary is so understanding—and so very alive. His support means more to Aura than she cares to admit.
As Aura's relationships with the dead and the living grow ever complicated, so do her feelings for Logan and Zachary. Each holds a piece of Aura's heart…and clues to the secret of the Shift.

 ;) I loved Ana and Cas too! That's Ana Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake. Waiting for the next one.

I personally think "If I Stay" by Gayle Foreman falls on this category as well because the heroine was a wandering spirit. I loved that heartbreaking series too.

Hi, does anyone has Shine by Jerri Smith-Ready? Thank you. :)

That would have to be Heather Graham's Bone Island Trilogy in my case.

A Certain Slant of Light by Laura Whitcomb 8)

In the class of the high school English teacher she has been haunting, Helen feels them: for the first time in 130 years, human eyes are looking at her. They belong to a boy, a boy who has not seemed remarkable until now. And Helen--terrified, but intrigued--is drawn to him. The fact that he is in a body and she is not presents this unlikely couple with their first challenge. But as the lovers struggle to find a way to be together, they begin to discover the secrets of their former lives and of the young people they come to possess.

Beautiful and intense.
