Ghosts of Rosewood Asylum by Stephen Prosapio

I don’t like very scary books. I don’t watch ghost hunter shows. I get scared very easily. But Ghosts of Rosewood Asylum by Stephen Prosapio was recommended to me so I read it even though it’s not a book I’d “typically” read and I am very glad I did!

In Ghosts of Rosewood Asylum two rival ghost hunter shows have the chance to investigate a supposedly haunted asylum together. Sometimes I was sure there were no ghosts and other times I was sure it was all ghosts. Occasionally I could guess what was going to happen (which sometimes meant I was pretty anxious reading – as I said, I scare easily), but the writing was extremely engaging and the story was told in a way that really kept my attention (to the point of staying up until 3am to finish it – very, very unusual for me).

Right from the start I had lots of questions and just couldn’t stop reading because I wanted to find the answers. The only problems I had with Ghosts of Rosewood Asylum were minor. One is the number of characters. Both paranormal shows had several kids in it and sometimes a character would pop up that I had forgotten about or it would take me a few moments to remember which show various minor characters belonged to. The other is sometimes the scene would change and it wasn’t clear. That was confusing a few times (this could possibly be an issue with the Kindle version – but stars or something indication time passage or a scene change would have been useful). Other than those little things, I, much to my surprise, really loved Ghosts of Rosewood Asylum!
