Getting down and dirty with today's post, I'm going to be combining G and H, but not as two separate things. I was trying to find a way to combine the letters and find my subject that way. Lo and behold -- GHOSTS!
Everyone's got their own version of what makes a ghost. They are one of the things that horror stories have been made of since the dawn of time. Alright, I exaggerate. Maybe. LOL
One of my favorite books I read when I was growing up was Wait Till Helen Comes. This book has stayed in my memory ever since the first time I read it. Needless to say, I was freaked the F#*$ out. LOL It had such an eerie quality to it and I think I was about 10 at the time, so it was especially creepy for me. I think this book was the beginning of my love for paranormal fiction.

New slightly more creepy cover:
I heard the book was going to be made into a movie now. My only hope is that they don't ruin it. Jennifer Love Hewitt is slated to be producing it. She's the Ghost Whisperer, so maybe good things will happen. LOL
Also, I totally love that show. That is all.
What ghost stories did you guys grow up reading about or watching that had left lasting impressions?
