For some reason, I am always drawn to books about “creepy” things and then feel the need to read them before bed and keep myself up all night. Reading Haunted Things was no exception! The book tells a bit about where you can get haunted items from – estate sales, antique shops, etc and what kind of things to expect if you have a haunted item – such as sounds and smells. If you think you may have a haunted item it also talks about what kind of equipment you can use to investigate your items. There are also stories throughout the book of people’s experiences with the paranormal and haunted stuff.
Certainly an interesting, albeit creepy read, you might want to read before the sun goes down. Unless of course you are into creeping yourself out right before bed. I don’t even want to know what kind of dreams (or nightmares) my brain will come up with tonight – especially since as a child I was convinced I had a haunted doll in my closet. (Which is now across the hall in the attic and hopefully behaving herself!)
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
Finding a one-of-a-kind antique doll at a garage sale is a great feeling—until you bring that doll home and discover it’s haunted. Objects with restless spirits attached to them can quietly invade a home through auctions, antique dealers, estate sales, garage sales, and inheritance. This spooky collection examines a wide variety of haunted items, from screaming skulls to demonic dolls, and how they affect the owner’s life.
Haunted Stuff provides true accounts of possessed possessions, often found in the strangest places. Discover chilling stories of the island of haunted dolls, the tumbling coffin, Rudolph Valentino’s cursed ring, and even the Queen Anne ocean liner—one of the largest haunted items of all. Experience these true accounts that will make you look closer at the antiques on your shelf . . . and wonder if that creepy doll just blinked.
