Unrest Blog Tour & Most Awesome Giveaway

Today are happy to be a spot on Michelle Harrison’s blog tour celebrating the release of her new novel Unrest and to be hosting a MOST Awesome Giveaway!

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Seventeen-year-old Elliott hasn’t slept properly for months. Not since the accident that nearly killed him. Sometimes he half-wakes, paralysed, while shadowy figures move around him. Other times he is the one moving around while his body lies asleep on the bed. His doctors say sleep paralysis and out-of-body experiences are harmless – but to Elliott they’re terrifying.

Convinced that his brush with death has attracted the spirit world, Elliott secures a job at a reputedly haunted museum, determined to discover the truth. There, he meets the enigmatic Ophelia. But, as she and Elliott grow closer, Elliott draws new attention from the dead. One night, during an out-of-body experience, Elliott returns to bed to find his body gone. Something is occupying it, something that wants to live again – and it wants Ophelia, too . . .

A chilling new novel for teen readers from the best-selling author of the widely acclaimed 13 Treasures sequence.

    Hmmm… my favorite ghost story? I don’t know if I have a favorite story but I do have a favorite book series… Meg Cabot’s Mediator books introduced me to urban fantasy so they have a special place in my heart, I suppose. πŸ™‚ Now that I think about it I haven’t read many books or seen many movies/ series with ghosts. O.o

    Ohhh that looks fantastic!

    Favourite ghost book: I looooved Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book and I hope the movie (…when it finally happens) does it justice.

    Favourite ghost movie… I have a huge soft spot for Peter Jackson’s The Frighteners and I cannot for the life of me understand why. :’D

    This is a pretty awesome price pack. I haven’t read any of these and they both sound good. Hard to pick one favourite book, but I recently enjoyed Eyes to See by Joseph Nassise.

    The Graveyard Book! <333

  • Kailana
    April 29, 2012 at 12:14 pm

    I think my favourite ghost story is probably The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. With the popularity of vampires, werewolves, etc, ghosts sort of get lost in the midst of things.

  • Andreea
    April 29, 2012 at 12:15 pm

    The latest ghost story I read and liked was Anna Dressed in Blood. Oh, and Koontz’s Odd series also come to mind (not that I read all of them, but I did find interesting the ones I did read).

    Thank you for this great giveaway! πŸ™‚

    I really enjoyed the twists and turns of Kelley Armstrong’s Darkest Powers Trilogy, where the main character, Chloe, can see ghosts. Does that count?

  • Rebekah W.
    April 29, 2012 at 1:06 pm

    My favourite ghost book is probably The Red Tree (CaitlΓ­n Kiernan) which is, arguably, not a ghost book at all. But possibly is. But if it comes down to haunted houses — houses that haunt, most likely devoid of ghosts — I’d have to say Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House.

    I am also a sucker for Supernatural. And horrible haunting movies — the type I like to hunker down and watch, but am far too embarrassed to list.

  • mary anne
    April 29, 2012 at 1:21 pm

    Odd Thomas and The Sixth Sense. Though for a lighter touch, the old movies Topper and The Ghost and Mrs. Muir are always awesome.

  • SandyG265
    April 29, 2012 at 1:40 pm

    My favorite ghost book is The Graveyard Book.

  • A_nna

    My favourite ghost story would be ‘Time of the Ghost’ by Diana Wynne Jones. My favourite ghost tv series would be ‘Medium’.

  • Lindsay Elizabeth
    April 29, 2012 at 2:22 pm

    I think my favorite books about ghosts would be the Darkest Power trilogy by Kelley Armstrong. Granted, it’s about a necromancer, but I think it counts!

  • Tanya

    I liked ghost whisperer…she saw ghosts!

    Love supernatural. The wenchester’s kill ghosts so a little worried for bobby now.

  • Rachel
    April 29, 2012 at 3:27 pm

    My favourite ghost story would probably be the Curse of Chalion by Lois McMaster Bujold… creepy, with awesome characters.

  • azteclady
    April 29, 2012 at 4:06 pm

    Oh my good God, my favorite ghost story or tv show or movie?

    I do have a soft spot for the old TV show The Ghost and Mrs Muir mentioned above, and I confess that I really love Ghost (Patrick Swayze *sigh*) and The Sixth Sense, but I can’t claim to have one favorite.

    Does that automatically disqualifies me? πŸ™

  • Stuart
    April 29, 2012 at 4:08 pm

    I could probably answer all 3 sections:

    Favorite Ghost story would probably be Hell House by Richard Matheson

    Favorite TV Show: Casper the Friendly Ghost

    Favorite Movie: BeetleJuice

  • Michelle
    April 29, 2012 at 4:11 pm

    Cool giveaway! I’m really enjoying reading everyone’s choices – I hadn’t even considered The Curse of Chalion. My favorite ghost movie is an obscure Chinese film called My Left Eye Sees Ghosts. It’s romantic and hilarious. A ghost book that has really stuck with me is Peter Beagle’s A Fine and Private Place.

  • Sharon Ames

  • Tamara

    Got to get on board with The Graveyard Book love. It’s definitely one of those books that I wish I could’ve written. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  • Chachic
    April 29, 2012 at 7:10 pm

    I’m not a big fan of ghost stories because I’m a scaredy-cat but my favorites are probably A Certain Slant of Light by Laura Whitcomb and The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman because I didn’t have to worry about being afraid while reading those two. :mrgreen:

  • Randy Pickett

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

    I would have to say that my most favorite movie about ghosts (and I don’t watch to many because things…haunt me, for lack of a better term…for a while afterwards)would be The Sixth Sense. This movie totally blew my mind with the ending, but it also left me with a good feeling which I SO appreciated.

  • Justine

    As a kid I always liked Ghostbusters and still watch it today when the episodes are on tv. πŸ˜€

  • Amy C
    April 29, 2012 at 9:24 pm

    I love Charles de Lint’s “The Blue Girl,” because Adrian is one of the few male protagonists that felt perfectly human and original, the kind of male character that makes girls think a little bit harder about personality over physique and makes boys think a little bit harder about giving up young adult books [much the same way some girls give up fashion magazines and the like for the ridiculous standards they’re held up to]… so, really Adrian is someone to connect with — even if he is a ghost, a situation I imagine neither boy nor girl can truly sympathize with…

  • Kerry D.
    April 29, 2012 at 9:46 pm

    I don’t know about all time favourite, but the first one I thought of (after Ghostbusters) was Susanna Kearsley’s The Shadowy Horses.

  • Courtney
    April 29, 2012 at 9:49 pm

    I think my favorite ghost story would be, Heart-shaped Box by Joe Hill.

  • Helen

  • Kate & Zena

    The Mediator series, and I’m not even sure if that counts! (I’m not exactly one for ghost stories! I scare quite easily!)

  • Mary Preston

    April 30, 2012 at 3:10 am

  • karro radley
    April 30, 2012 at 3:23 am

    “The Host” is my favorite book,may be there are not to many ghosts,but the plot is amasing.As for the film,the best,from my point of view,is “The Others”.”Sixth Sense” too,but “The Others” is just on the first place.

  • Parris
    April 30, 2012 at 3:34 am

    Favourite story has to be the darkest power series by kelley armstrong.

  • Nina
    April 30, 2012 at 4:08 am

    As a child of the 80s, it’s ‘Ghostbusters'(“a class-5 free-roaming vapor, real nasty one too”) and ‘Poltergeist’ (“Talk louder, I can’t hear you”). And Courtney picked a great one with ‘Heart-Shaped Box.’

  • Sarah Dearnley
    April 30, 2012 at 4:16 am

    What an amazing give-away!
    Oooh favourite ghosty things – Stephen King’s Bag of Bones really freaked me out when I read it as a teenager – the ghosts talking to him using fridge magnets!
    Film/Tv wise, I love Being Human (Uk version), though did wish Annie got to use her awesome powers more often. I also loved a TV series called Hex about a teenage witch that got cancelled, her best friend was a ghost.
    Thanks for the chance to win these awesome goodies πŸ™‚

    Oh man, it’s really embarrassing to admit this because the movie is so full of cliches it’s about to burst, but my favorite ghost movie is “What Lies Beneath”. It’s one of those suspenseful “scary” movies that still makes me jump every time.

  • CrystalGB
    April 30, 2012 at 6:14 am

  • Gerd D.
    April 30, 2012 at 6:48 am

    Favourite, hum, hard to say, there’s a couple I love. But I guess if I weed out those that happen to feature Ghosts I love, but do not focus on Ghosts then it all comes down to the original:

    The Haunting by Robert Wise
    (based on Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson)

  • Pallavi
    April 30, 2012 at 7:03 am

    Oh, it’s easily Supernatural. Sixth Sense and What Lies Beneath are honourable mentions, but its mostly Supernatural for me. *fingers crossed* Hope I win… πŸ™‚

    Cheers!

  • SueCCCP
    April 30, 2012 at 7:06 am

    My favorite ghost-related film has to be Ghostbusters: I remember sneaking out of school to go and see it!

    As for TV, my favorite ghost is definitely Annie in Being Human (BBC UK version).

    In books it has to be Bob in The Dresden Files, though he is a Spirit, more than a ghost, he is still hilarious and a total pervert! πŸ˜€

  • Meredith
    April 30, 2012 at 7:09 am

    Ghostbusters for sure. I love Bill Murray.

  • Amanda
    April 30, 2012 at 7:10 am

    I think my favourite ghost related story is the Darkest Powers Trilogy by Kelley Armstrong. But I read The Woman In Black (mainly because of the Daniel Radcliffe film) and thought it was pretty good as well. I’m a big fan of the fantasy books, if someone in the story doesn’t have some sort of supernatural power I probably won’t be interested.

  • Mandy Nicholls
    April 30, 2012 at 7:29 am

    My favourite story about ghosts has definitely got to be Ruined by Paula Morris! It’s sort of a cross between a ghost story and historical fiction, and it’s so good!

  • Kate

    It’s not a ghost story, per se, but I’m enjoying the Cassandra Palmer series, where the heroine can see and interact with ghosts, and one of the main characters is a ghost. It’s a lot of fun.

  • LeAnn
    April 30, 2012 at 10:04 am

    I don’t think I could pick a favorite book about ghosts, there are too many to choose from. As far as favorite movie, I’d have to go with a classic – Poltergeist.

  • Amanda
    April 30, 2012 at 12:14 pm

    My favorite show is Battlestar Galactica, but people tend to debate whether or not one of the characters was a ghost or not. Personally, I think she was a ghost with unfinished business.

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  • Kaethe
    April 30, 2012 at 12:30 pm

  • Simona
    April 30, 2012 at 12:31 pm

    They are not necessarily ghost stories but mostly paranormal TV shows: Ghost Whisperer and Supernatural. When it comes to movies I guess the ones I appreciated back in their days were: Corpse Bride, Ghost, Coraline, The Ring, Silent Hill etc…
    Thanks a lot for the lovely GA!

  • Christina (A Reader of Fictions)
    April 30, 2012 at 12:56 pm

    Ghost things. Well, the movie may be Ghostbusters, just for all of the childhood and college memories attached to it.

    Why can’t I think of any books about ghosts that I loved? There must be some. Harry Potter! There are ghosts. Well, it’s not about ghosts exactly, but I’m counting it!

  • Barmy_Bex
    April 30, 2012 at 1:10 pm

    Like a lot of others here, I do scare quite easily, but I did love the Mediator series by Meg Cabot. Just wow. πŸ˜€

  • Max
    April 30, 2012 at 1:14 pm

    Well, I do love Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendra Blake. The dreariness of the writing and the originality does call out to me–I mean, come on, how many books can you name that has a male MC who kills ghosts? How badass is that?

    Also, the plot itself is quite interesting. Anna isn’t one dimensional, and so are the other characters who’re in the book.

    It’s a good read, overall, and I’m happy to see that many other people like it too. Thought I was the only one. πŸ˜›

    I think my favorite book with a ghost is Dark Needs at Night’s Edge by Kresley Cole, especially because I went in really doubting the plot from the blurb and ended up loving it

  • Charlotte
    April 30, 2012 at 6:17 pm

    My favorite ghost book is The Ghosts, by Antonia Barber (UK title–The Amazing Mr. Blunden). It is a most excellent middle grade time travel plus ghost story, and I have loved it for years!

  • Jen B.
    April 30, 2012 at 7:29 pm

    The first story that popped into my mind was…”panic, I am drawing a blank!”. Then I remembered the Jenny Wade house in Gettysburg. I just love that story. I didn’t see any ghosts but my friend did and she even got pictures!

  • Alex
    April 30, 2012 at 9:38 pm

    I try not to watch/read too many ghost stories. My imagination, it is too overactive – I saw Woman in Black a couple of months ago and I STILL think of her when I’m getting ready for bed/in a dark house. HOWEVER. All bets are off when it comes to Ghost Whisperer. I watched almost the entire run of that show the summer before last, and damned if I didn’t love every moment of it (even if many of those moments were spent making loving fun of the rampant cheese).

    I was talking to my two daughters about this book just the other day. Its rare that I am excited about the same new book as they are. I read the ’13’ series after they recommended it and loved the characters and ‘darker’ edgy fairytale elements. I see Michelle’s influences in my daughters own creative writing nowadays. We are all looking forward this new book (new series?). Keep up the good work!! πŸ˜€

    …. i forgot to mention a favorite ghost story!! Doh.. Actually when I was younger I read a story by (i think)Edgar Allan Poe, which involved mirrors. I remember I had to cover all mirrors in my house for about a month as they freaked me out so much.

    My favorite ghost story is the Canterville Ghost by Oscar Wilde. I love the ghost’s reaction to the American ‘pragmatism’!

    The Girl in a Swing by Richard Adams. It’s surprisingly beautiful for a ghost story.

    i loved the TV show marchlands, on BBC xD It was so good! It was basically about a little girl who was haunting this old house, and it switched between different era’s. It was VERY spooky, and was stuck in my mind for AGES! Eeep! It’s a movie now too! πŸ˜€ :mrgreen:

    I must have read The Discontented Ghost by Scott Corbett dozens of times when I was little. I’m afraid to read it again now in case it doesn’t live up to my memories.

    I loved Randall & Hopkirk Deceased when I was a teen – the original version not the remake
    Would love to read Unrest

    My favorite ghost related TV show is Ghost Whisperer, no doubt (cheesy but cute).
    Also, Gerald Durrell, in his book The Picnic and Such Like Pendemonium, has a story that I always interpreted as a sort of ghost story (and it always scared the hell out of me) – ‘The Entrance’.

    Thanks for the giveaway πŸ™‚

    I am going to be honest and say that I haven’t read or watched many media with ghosts in it, since they used to make me have nightmares as a child. However, I am happy to say that at age 24, I’m finally able to manage more of the supernatural in my fiction, and actually enjoy it a lot. Somehow, ghosts have never appeared yet, or at least not that I remember? Does it count to say that I am super excited to read “The Graveyard Book” soon?

    I loved the 13 series, and the new book looks amazing!

    I love all the “reality” ghost shows on TV – Ghost Hunters, Ghost Adventures, The Dead Files.

    what an amazing giveaway, thank you for entering me!

    i love with all my heart buffy the vampire slayer, which has plenty of ghosts. book wise, i would have to go with the graveyard book by neil gaiman. it is wonderful.

    (i used to eat up ghost stories when i was a kid, reading tons of books by rl stein and christopher pike. now i think they would be too scary for me!!)

    Currently, my fave ghost story is a play a friend of mine wrote and directed. I’m in it, so it’s sort of at the front of my mind right now…
    I’m not usually one for classic ghost stories. I do not know if this counts, but Thirteen Reasons Why is a ghost story to me, and it is stunning.

    My absolute favorite ghost story is Jane-Emily by Patricia Clapp, although Wait Till Helen Comes by Mary Downing Hahn is a very close second.

    For TV? No question. Supernatural is the best!

    I used to love the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark books when I was younger.

    What Lies Beneath was a pretty creepy movie about ghosts. My friend had to sit outside for a few minutes before she could drive home to her dark apartment after that one.

    It’s one of my favourite episodes of the TV show Charmed called Dead Man Dating. It’s really sweet love/ghost story and at the end I always tear up at it.

    I have recently seen the new thriller movie ‘The Woman in Black’ starring the one and only Danielle Radcliffe. I love horror movies and usually laugh all the way through, but this one gave the the chills. The plot was AMAZING and it was one of the scariest haunting movies I’ve ever seen, actually one of the scariest movies I’ve ever seen full-stop. I recommend it to anyone who loves to scream, but be warned and watch it with friends close by and blanket you can hide under…

    I liked the TV show Ghost Whisperer. A cool story was on some home show and the people were like ” Destroy my house! There’s ghosts in there!” I’m the biggest fan of Michelle Harrison I cried at the end of every 13 treasures book………………….:mrgreen:
