Wednesday’s Word = GHOST

Most readers will acknowledge that some words reappear time and time again in titles. Often these words are associated with a particular genre. Case in point: “The girl on the train” and “Gone girl” spawned countless thriller titles with the word ‘girl’ in the title.

But of course! I felt I MUST have a seasonal word for October.

I know there are hundreds of books with the word ‘GHOST’ in the title, but I’m featuring a small selection of titles that appeal to me personally, as a way of sharing my book love.  Don’t assume that these are all paranormal titles, in addition to ‘ghost stories’, you’ll find crime fiction, historical fiction, and much more.

Just click on the cover to read the book’s synopsis from Goodreads.
You might just find your next favorite book!

Are you tempted by any of these covers?

So many fabulous ones here.
Have you read one of these titles and absolutely LOVED it?

If you’ve added even one of these titles to YOUR TBR,
Please let me know in the comments.

    What a great choice for a word in October (even though I am reading this post mid November). The only one I have read is Ghost Moon by Karen Robards. A couple of others look good though.

    I loved Ghost Wall. There were no supernatural elements, but the author created an atmosphere which was so beautiful, intense, full of foreboding and almost ghostly.

    the last book I read with ‘ghost;’ in the title was; “the Ghost Road” by Pat Barker. 1995 Booker Prize book.
    Where have I been since then?
    Based on the covers I will have a look through the books on line. The one that appeals to me at the moment is, Peter Straub – “Ghost Story”. He seems to have a range of such dark books.
