Teaser Tuesday #40

TEASER

Hey everyone, and welcome back for another Teaser Tuesday! Autumn is in full swing and I am totally getting Halloween vibes from my current read. Let me just say that my current read is a little bit “peculiar.” Let’s dive straight into the excerpt.

Puzzled,I shrugged it off and went out. It was pissing rain I soon left gray skies behind for the reliable sun of the loop. This time, however, there were no pretty girls waiting for me on the other side of the cairn – or anyone, for that matter. I tried not to be too disappointed, but I was, a little.

Yup, I am finally getting to Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs! This has been on my TBR for months now, and I am so excited to be finally reading it. I was able to grab a copy of this for less than $5.00 earlier this year and just had to read it in October. With the creepy pictures, this is definitely a perfect October read.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children, #1)A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of curious photographs.

A horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.

A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.

And that is it for today! I hope you all enjoyed this post! If you are reading anything at the moment, definitely tell me down below! I would love to know what you all are reading. Other than that, be sure to like and follow to stay up to date with all of my future posts!

Teaser Tuesday #39

TEASER

Hey everyone, and welcome back for another Teaser Tuesday! These are my absolute favorite posts and it sucks how late I am writing this. But, if there is anything you should know about me, it’s that I am horrible at time management. And, usually blogging gets kicked back to the end of my night. So, be prepared for some later posts! But, I am currently reading a super cool book with a spooky cover that I am excited to share with you today!

As though sensing me watching, Chet turned his eyes toward mine. We held that gaze for no longer than three or four seconds, but in that moment, it felt much, much longer. I dropped my eyes to his mouth, which had more color from the repeated pressure of kissing, the same way slapped skin deepens with blood. Chet watched me back, a strange, wishful tension in his eyes. It put me on alert.

I absolutely adored the first two books in Becca Fitzpatrick’s Hush, Hush series, so when I saw this one at a used book sale for a really reasonable price, I took advantage of it. I’ve been reading this for only 3 days now and I am flying through it. I only have about an hour, two if I’m lucky, to read, so it’s great wen I pick up a really enjoyable book! The cover of this story is super creepy, and gives me total Halloween vibes. Although the actual story doesn’t match that vibe, I still CANNOT wait to see how it ends!

Dangerous LiesA teen is forced to make a fresh start after witnessing a violent crime—but love and danger find her anyway in this novel from Becca Fitzpatrick, the New York Times bestselling author of the Hush, Hush saga.

Stella Gordon is not her real name. Thunder Basin, Nebraska, is not her real home. This is not her real life.

After witnessing a lethal crime, Stella Gordon is sent to the middle of nowhere for her own safety before she testifies against the man she saw kill her mother’s drug dealer.

But Stella was about to start her senior year with the boyfriend she loves. How can she be pulled away from the only life she knows and expected to start a new one in Nebraska? Stella chafes at her protection and is rude to everyone she meets. She’s not planning on staying long, so why be friendly? Then she meets Chet Falconer and it becomes harder to keep her guard up, even as her guilt about having to lie to him grows.

As Stella starts to feel safer, the real threat to her life increases—because her enemies are actually closer than she thinks…
