5 Surprising Facts about Haunted Places in Paranormal Texas

Paranormal Texas – My Book Review


“Before venturing upstairs, the research team left a few items behind, including a folder full of newspaper clippings and a flashlight. Upon entering the upstairs billiards room, investigators were shocked to discover those two items sitting on a table, as if Scotty from “Star Trek” had beamed them up when they weren’t looking.”

I love ghost stories. I love real ghost stories even more. Paranormal Texas makes the ghosts truly authentic.

Are you a disbeliever? Are ghosts real? In Paranormal Texas you get introduced to an elevator ghost, along with a purported alien landing and dying in Aurora, Texas and haunted cemetery encounters. You will most likely not be a disbeliever for long after reading this book. If these things deeply interest you then Paranormal Texas is a book to add to your glovebox if you travel.

What was so chilling about reading this 2nd Edition for me? I’ll honestly state here I knew when I visited Dallas Heritage Village at Old City Park back in 2006 that something was off. I was uneasy the entire time I was there. Now thanks to Paranormal Texas I know why I had that uneasy feeling during a work-related research trip. I never knew it could be haunted since the buildings had been moved to the location. I have visited the Granbury Opera House that has an interesting historical tie to one of our Presidents. Plus, I’ve shopped at Artefactz and have Haunted Granbury by Brandy Herr.

Two favorite books are in my collection.

Paranormal Texas is a book that kept my interest energized with every page because of my own encounters with a few unexplained incidences that left me uneasy. Broken down by north Texas towns, the book gives readers the perfect amount of information that will further pique your interest on each haunted location. Author, Tui Snider also includes the physical addresses of the actual locations, as well as websites when they are available.

This 2nd Edition now includes photographs of the paranormal locations. You can tell Snider has done her research either before or after visiting some of the locations. You catch snippets of Tui’s deep research throughout the book on the locations where ghosts and paranormal activity have been spotted or experienced. For example, a while back I discovered the Find a Grave website complements online newspaper archives quite well.

Snider offers a fresh trustworthiness to her paranormal investigations. Sprits most certainly will not wait until you get investigation equipment set up.  According to Snider, the moment you enter a building or a place is when your observing needs to begin.

One very sad point that Snider reminds readers of is that many people died nameless long ago. Back in the early days, there were no ID cards to help identify who you were unless you carried a calling card.

Now, after reading this book I must decide which sites should I visit first from Paranormal Texas. I must say I need to get my friend June to visit the Haunted Hill House in Mineral Wells, as well as the Oakwood Cemetery in Fort Worth.

Check out Tui’s 2nd Edition of Paranormal Texas if you are a ghost lover or seeker. It has originality, just enough novelty, and lots of spark to keep your interest. It is simply a little amazing book to travel with to do some explorations of your own.

Thank you, Tui for the opportunity to review your book.
