There are about as many paranormal books as there are reality stars. Trouble is trying to figure out a good paranormal book from a bad one. Kinda the same for reality tv 🙂
Since I love all things ghost, cryptid and paranormal related I tend to read a lot of books about oddities in the world around us.
I’m sharing my favorite books by giving you a little look at the ones that are worthy of gracing my very limited bookshelf space.
Of course, I’m always looking for recommendations so if there is a book you think I should add to my collection drop a comment below.
If you are an author or publisher that would like to have a book added to my bookshelf please contact me at
Note–All books are linked to Amazon. If you make a purchase a very, very small percentage of your purchase is shared with me which helps keeps this site alive and well. THANK YOU!
