It has been several weeks since I put down my copy of How to Sell a Haunted House by Grady Hendrix and I’m still perplexed as to what I read.

This was my first introduction to Grady’s work. The Final Girl Support Group sits collecting dust in my TBR pile. One day I’ll get there. Its slow start hasn’t quite caught me yet.

How to Sell a Haunted House, on the other hand, was a ride right from the very beginning.

I can’t believe I’m going to say this, but, if you have time and you’re looking for an adventure, I would very much suggest picking up a copy of this book.

Just be prepared for the weird nightmares you’ll probably encounter.

Or the childhood trauma that may be unearthed.

Have fear, there are dolls and puppets involved!

Now, let’s get on with what exactly the hell How to Sell a Haunted House is.

I’m Sorry for Your Loss

Losing your parents is a terrible tragedy. Having to clean up the remnants of their home and put their affairs in order are responsibilities that typically fall to the eldest child.

Louise is no stranger to being the one in charge of everything.
