3 Books that will show you a psychological angle to a Paranormal Story

3 Books that will show you a psychological angle to a paranormal story


Well, Wikipedia defines ‘Paranormal’ as

Events that are purported phenomena described in popular culture, folk, and other non-scientific bodies of knowledge, whose existence within these contexts is described to lie beyond normal experience or scientific explanation.

And ‘stories’ means just stories.

Now, the twist in here is the books that will show you a psychological angle to a paranormal story. Books that will make you believe that it’s a paranormal but also provides you with a psychological side to you. So here are the 3 books of the type I just mentioned above:

The House on Tradd Street
by Karen White

The House on Tradd Street by Karen White

Opening Lines: Pewter reflections of scarlet hibiscus colored the dirt-smudged windows of the old house, like happy memories of youth trapped inside the shell of an old man.

Page Count: 352 pages

Publisher: Berkley

Publication Date: November 4th, 2008

“Because a garden is the heart of a house, where love is the seed and the dark earth like a mother who nurtures her saplings until they bloom, and then waits for them with furrowed arms to return. It is the story told again and again from my garden: from dust, we begin, and to dust we will return again.”

I haven’t read this book but I have heard a lot about it from others. It’s some mystery novel with HOUSE as the major theme of the book. Well, I’m gonna read it and review it soon 🙂
