Books: Haunted by Dorah L. Williams

This month's book club selection was a scary, Halloween-y book in keeping with the October theme. Haunted: The Incredible True Story of a Canadian Family's Experience Living in a Haunted House by Dorah Williams in a nonfiction story of a chilling haunting.

This story started slowly. A family is eerily drawn to an old Victorian house and moves in despite poor timing. Then strange things start happening; they smell food cooking when nothing's in the oven, they hear footsteps when no one else is in the house. The hauntings escalate until the family decides to do something about it and they poke into the past searching for the answer to their mystery.

Quick vote: This book was fantastic. If you're in the mood for a creepy book for the spooky season, check out this "true" book!

Aunt Annie's 2 Cents: We don't like scary books. But we do like hairy books!
