Bonus Teaser Tuesday: Poisoned Apples by Christine Heppermann

Teaser Tuesday: The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm.  Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

•Grab your current read.

•Open to a random page.

 •Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page. (I tend to go over this limit a LOT!)

•BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

•Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Last week I finished this wonderful book: The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton. I'm not sure what category this book falls under - Contemporary? Urban fantasy? Ghost story? Maybe all of the above. Regardless, it's a beautifully written, magical read!

Here are my teasers from page 157 on my nook:

This rain smelled eerily to her like nothing at all. Or if anything, it smelled the way she suspected an omen might smell: a lunar eclipse, the evil eye, the number 13. It smelled, also, like fear.

So, what are you reading this week? Have you chosen something seasonal? I have, a few times in the past, picked Christmas-themed books this time of year, though this year I have not really found anything yet. If you have any good Christmassy reading suggestions, let me know in the comments! Cheers!
