What I thought of Paranormal Confessions

If it wasn’t for Eldeweiss I probably would have never found Paranormal Confessions. I love ghosts stories based on true events. Do I believe in ghosts? I actually don’t know. I’ve never come across one or got a bad feeling that one was there. That doesn’t mean they aren’t real. I just can’t decide if I really believe in them. Being a skeptic doesn’t stop me from reading stories about them though. Ghosts are fascinating to me. They have been since I was a little girl. Because of that I always watched shows about them were paranormal investigators went to the most haunted places around. If you like paranormal books then you might also like Nightingale House.

The Plot and Writing

The title and the cover are actually what attracted me to this story. I like reading about haunted places. On top of that, I like to know people’s experiences even though I haven’t had one myself. They still creep me out even though I’m unsure if I believe in them or not.

There are parts of Paranormal Confessions that were really good. Parts of it were creepy even though I think the story is meant to be more informative than creepy. That’s not going to stop me from getting goosebumps from the story and what some have been through.

What I wish was different

On the other hand, I feel like the story could have been fleshed out a little bit. Parts of the story flow very well while others… not so much. Not that the story is bad or anything. There are some occasions where I was a little unsure on when exactly certain stories were taking place since the entire book is over a certain about of years. That’s probably something a lot of readers won’t care about but I always like to know how much time has passed.

The only other thing that I wish was different was the formatting of the tips. At the end of each chapter, we got a tip of what might help if you think you’re in a haunted house or something you really shouldn’t do. I just wish those were incorporated into the story rather than having their own little area. On top of that, it would have been cool to get some background on the author since she stated that she’s never experienced this sort of thing until she moved into that house. I would have liked to have known where she got her information from and how she learned what not to do through her journey.

How do you like books that deal with ghosts?
