Excerpt from The Hollow City

Excerpt from The Hollow City

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.  ...

Excerpt from Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

This is one book that's been on my reading list for some time. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, by Ransom Riggs, has been made into a movie by Tim Burton, but I had my eye on it even before then. It is first in a series of three ...

Excerpt from Island of Shipwrecks

I just finished reading Island of Shipwrecks, book #5 of the YA Fantasy Unwanteds series by Lisa McMann. This is probably not a series that you want to jump into the middle of like I did!

Excerpt from The Weed that Strings the Hangman’s Bag

I have been reading a couple more of the Flavia de Luce books by Alan Bradley. Right now, I am reading The Weed that Strings the Hangman's Bag. Since I've ended up reading the few that I have in reverse chronological order, it's been very interesting to see how much some of the characters have changed since the beginning! Flavia's family and the villagers have really softened in the later books.  ...

Excerpt from The Dead in their Vaulted Arches

Alan Bradley's Flavia de Luce series is new to me, and I'm glad I picked this one up. The Dead in their Vaulted Arches is apparently #6 in the series, though Amazon doesn't tell you the volume number, so you have to go to another site to find out! I am enjoying reading about this precocious little poisoner—er, amateur detective—and her family, friends, and enemies. Flavia is in the sad circumstance of trying to solve her long-lost mother's murder, but she seems to be up to the task.  ...
Excerpt from The Eternity Code

Excerpt from The Eternity Code

Here is one of the books I read last week, a light read with fairies, fun, and flatulent dwarves. The Eternity Code by Eoin Colfer is a middle-grade adventure in the Artemis Fowl series, guaranteed to keep your young reader (or you) interested. It's an entertaining read; just see if you can keep up with Artemis and his schemes.  ...
