I put some ideas up for different realm/universe in the first post. A lot of people get confused over what constitutes a different realm or universe. Just because vampires or other paranormal creatures exist in our world in a book, that doesn't count. Also, it can't be something that could be a possible future for our world (IE - Kate Daniels). It has to be something where the world is completely different. Eragon and Lord of the Rings are the two that you'll probably be the most familiar with. They're completely different worlds, not England with a magical place called Hogworts that is hidden from a lot of humans.
Hopefully this will help.

Yes, but I can't remember the name of it.

Zen and the Art of Vampires (Dark Ones, #6) by Katie MacAlister Shadowland (The Mediator, #1) by Meg Cabot Destined for an Early Grave (Night Huntress, #4) by Jeaniene Frost Haunting Jordan (Port Chatham, #1) by P.J. Alderman The Hollow (The Hollow, #1) by Jessica Verday Shade (Shade, #1) by Jeri Smith-Ready Once Dead, Twice Shy (Madison Avery, #1) by Kim Harrison Defending Angels (Beaufort & Company, #1) by Mary Stanton all have ghosts in them. The Frost book is the only one that I would say you have to read the other books first (and has the least ghosts). All the other ones are the first in a series, standalones, or able to be read without needing any background information.

I few I read are: Kissed by an Angel (Kissed by an Angel, The Power of Love, Soulmates) by Elizabeth Chandler , Shade (Shade, #1) by Jeri Smith-Ready , The Summoning (Darkest Powers, #1) by Kelley Armstrong , and Chasing Brooklyn  by Lisa Schroeder .

Heather T (horrorvacui000) | 532 comments Mod
Summoning. Forgot about that one. There's also one of the Women of the Otherworld books by Armstrong. One of them is about a medium.
I remember one where there was a kid that could see ghosts. I think it was something by Eileen Wilks. I'm not possitive though. The kid wasn't the main character or anything, but she helped solve the case the adults were working on. I wish I could remember what book that was.
There's also Hex Appeal (Jazz Tremaine, #2) by Linda Wisdom . She has a ghost that lives in her car.
