Who I’d Haunt by Holly Bourne

Holly Bourne is on the blog today and she’s got an excellent idea:

If I could haunt anyone…I would throw a ghost house party instead

So I’m a ghost. Why would I waste precious ghouling hours haunting living people when there are so many brilliant dead people I can now hang out with?

I would find a haunted house and throw the best party the underworld has ever known.

All my favourite authors would be there. Hunter S Thompson would deffo be up for it. Roald Dahl could do a reading. Jane Austen and I could gossip about Mr Darcy in the bogs. And I’d corner Enid Blyton in the hallway and ask her why she called characters ‘Dick’ and ‘Fanny’ in the Magic Faraway Tree.

I would invite all the ludicrously-attractive dead people and it wouldn’t be weird to fancy them anymore because I’d be dead too. I’d try dragging James Dean into a pile of coats and chat up River Phoenix in the kitchen.

And, at my ghost house party, all my favourite dead characters from books would magically turn up too. Sirius Black and I could play a drinking game, Dumbledore could tell me wise stuff(must not mention ALL the dead Harry Potter characters, though I want to), Beth and I could watch Little Woman on Ghost Netflix and sob together.

Oh, yeah, and Finnick from The Hunger Games would have to be there – because YUM.

Thanks, Holly – Lucy from My So-Called Afterlife most definitely approves!

Holly’s latest book is Soulmates:


Every so often, two people are born who are the perfect match for each other. Soulmates.

But what if meeting your soulmate is earth-shattering – literally?

After a chance meeting at a local band night, Poppy and Noah find themselves swept up in a whirlwind romance unlike anything they’ve ever experienced before. But with a secret international agency preparing to separate them and a trail of destruction rumbling in their wake, they are left with an impossible choice between the end of the world, or a life without love.
