September is here! The hot weather is retreating; pumpkin spice has returned.
As I wait eagerly for leaves to fall from the trees, I am looking for spooky and Halloween-themed books to read.
Ghost stories have always been among my favorites. I enjoy learning about old houses and historical figures; knowing that some people claim them to be haunted adds to the excitement!
I don’t love ghost stories for the scare of it, though. Ghosts are fascinating because they provide a link between the past and future. A ghost is a time traveler, albeit often unwillingly. A ghost would see our world so differently, appreciating things that we take for granted, like touch or a chat about the weather.
I have no opinion about whether ghosts are actually real, but they’re definitely fun to read about.
Do you have plans for the autumn?
