Alright hello I’m going to tell you about my favorite ghosty, scary-but-not-that-scary, super entertaining book that needs to be more popular: Lockwood & Co.
I am absolutely not exaggerating when I say that the Lockwood & Co. series is %100 on my top tier, need-to-read book that is absolutely amazing. Not only does it have an amazing author (Jonathan Stroud) who also has lots of other amazing series (Bartimaeus) it also simply has something for everyone; action, adventure, ghosts, a hint of romance, and it’s really funny as well!
Without spoiling it, here’s a quick overview(minor spoilers ahead- you find it all out pretty quickly though):
Lucy Carlyle, our main character, lives in a world where ghosts are common entities. Most are Very Evil. There are people who get rid of ghosts by burning their Sources- the object that the host is tied to- but here’s the catch; only children can see ghosts. Once you are an adult, you slowly stop seeing ghosts- so, the ghosts are vanquished by children. Naturally. Not to mention that some children can see ghosts, some can hear them, and come can sense them by feeling their source.
So, the story follows Lucy, who kills ghosts as her job, her mysterious new boss, and her interesting new colleague. It’s an amazing story with 5.5 books. (Yep, there’s book 1.5. It’s a short story by the same author)
So, in conclusion, the Lockwood & Co. series is definitely worth reading.
