Answer to Monday's Riddle! Is it a Ghost?


Great guessing everyone! This week we will be talking about those ever elusive entities we call ghosts. Lizzy's review is sure to set us up for a good scare. And, we are looking forward to telling you about a couple of spooky encounters of our own on Top of the Heap. The Spooktacular Book Hop will be running until Halloween night, October 31st, and you can still enter to win a copy of The Magic Warble by Victoria Simcox- this book giveaway will run until Sunday, November 4th. We have something terrifying planned for Friday, so be sure to check back. See you all around the book block ; ) ~ F

I took this picture at Fairfield Hills Hospital, which is an old, abandoned mental institution in Newtown, CT- and it's supposed to be extremely haunted!

A bump in the night shakes you awake. A creaking door opens, and your hands start to shake. But, nothing is there, nor under your bed. You think you're alone, except that voice in your head. Still, there's a charge that moves through the room; a chilly passing of wind or an eerie, green gloom. Who's to say what it is, in the dark of the night? If you're lucky, these spirits will stay out of sight. 

What am I referring to? Answer: Ghosts


Happy Haunting!

The rest of the picture- creepy!

  5. Freaky! I find places like that so fascinating. We have an abandonned mental institution in my city (Wellington, NZ) that's supposed to be haunted but you have to get permission with a very good reason to get in there. Sarah xo
