The World’s Most Haunted Places | From the Secret Files of

101271515Do you love ghost hunting as much as I do? Does the thought of prowling around in an old haunted house get you going? If so, I just finished reading a book I think you will want to read ASAP. It is called "The World’s Most Haunted Places, Revised Edition: From the Secret Files of" or as I like to refer to it, "The Tour Guide Book of the Supernatural".

Halloween is fast approaching and at this time of the year, I like to find books with a ghostly or supernatural bent. I like fiction, but when it come to ghost stories, I want the real thing.A Jeff Belanger, ( the author of this book takes us on a tour around the U.S. as well as other places around the world. We not only get to hear the spine tingling tales about ghosts, spirits and the macabre, but we also learn some historical tidbits about the various haunted places as well. How cool is that?

Who is Jeff Belanger? Jeff is one of the world’s most visible and prolific paranormal researchers. Since898c1fb98de60ad8986cf5.L._V203183943_-150x150 1997, the former journalist has interviewed thousands of eyewitnesses to paranormal occurrences. He is the author of a dozen books on the paranormal; the founder of one of the Web’s most popular paranormal destinations, and a noted speaker and media personality. Belanger is the series writer and researcher for Ghost Adventures on the Travel Channel. He’s been a guest on more than 200 radio and television programs including: The History Channel, The Travel Channel, PBS, The Maury Show, The CBS News Early Show, National Public Radio, The BBC, Australian Radio Network, and Coast to Coast AM. So yeah, Jeff is qualified to take us on this ghost tour for sure.

Here are some of the highlights from the book:

President Lincoln has been walking the halls of the White House in Washington, D.C., for more than a century.
The Queen Mary may just be the most storied and haunted ship on the planet.
The catacombs of Paris contain the skeletal remains of six million bodies…and many of their ghosts.
And the Tower of London is haunted by noblemen and commoners–some still searching for the heads they lost more than 500 years ago.
You will explore libraries, museums, restaurants, inns, and landmarks from North America, South America, Europe, and Australia. Use this as a guide book and go see some of these places yourself. Of course, the White House is probably not going to happen unless you can get an invite somehow.

I enjoyed this book a lot, from the history lessons, to the legends and sightings of ghostly activity. If you are interested in subjects like this, I can’t imagine you not liking this book. It is well written, interesting and scary too. Curl up in front of a fire and dig in. Just be ready for the feeling that someone or something is behind you ready to pounce. That is this kind of book. Enjoy!

You can get it at or Barnes and Noble. There doesn't appear to be a Nook or Kindle version as of this writing.
