Excerpt from The Hollow City

This weekend was my bookiversary! Have a look at my blog post. Be sure to check back later this week for my release of She was Dying Anyway and a round-up of other new releases.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules and more teasers at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along.

Have a look at the book covers of my last two reads! This was not at all planned; I was reading City of Ghosts and I have been wait-listed for Hollow City for a couple of months.

I did enjoy City of Ghosts. I’m not sure why she’s walking with a cat on the cover, since her cat does not go adventuring with her in the story.

My teaser is from Hollow City, book 2 of the series Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I just started it, but it has been interesting so far, picking up where book one finished and continuing Jacob’s trip away from the island and into his journey of self-discovery.

…thirty yards away—the hull of an overturned boat.

“That’s Bronwyn’s and Olive’s boat!” Emma said.

It was upside down, its rusty bottom to they sky. There was no sign of either girl around it.

Ransom Riggs, Hollow City

September 3, 1940. Ten peculiar children flee an army of deadly monsters. And only one person can help them—but she’s trapped in the body of a bird. The extraordinary journey that began in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children continues as Jacob Portman and his newfound friends journey to London, the peculiar capital of the world. There, they hope to find a cure for their beloved headmistress, Miss Peregrine. But in this war-torn city, hideous surprises lurk around every corner. And before Jacob can deliver the peculiar children to safety, he must make an important decision about his love for Emma Bloom.
