Teaser Tuesday: Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender and The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Books and a Beat. Bloggers choose two 
sentences out of our current read to pique others' curiosity.

Bad Girls Don't Die (Bad Girls Don't Die, #1)
Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender

Alexis thought she led a typically dysfunctional high school existence. Dysfunctional like her parents' marriage; her doll-crazy twelve-year-old sister, Kasey; and even her own anti-social, anti-cheerleader attitude. When a family fight results in some tearful sisterly bonding, Alexis realizes that her life is creeping from dysfunction into danger. Kasey is acting stranger than ever: her blue eyes go green sometimes; she uses old-fashioned language; and she even loses track of chunks of time, claiming to know nothing about her strange behavior. Their old house is changing, too. Doors open and close by themselves; water boils on the unlit stove; and an unplugged air conditioner turns the house cold enough to see their breath in.
Alexis wants to think that it's all in her head, but soon, what she liked to think of as silly parlor tricks are becoming life-threatening--to her, her family, and to her budding relationship with the class president. Alexis knows she's the only person who can stop Kasey -- but what if that green-eyed girl isn't even Kasey anymore?
The radio turned on all by itself. I nearly jumped out of my skin until I realized where the music was coming from. Then I saw the clock was on- red numbers and everything- and the radio was playing, and all the while I could see the cord neatly coiled up around it. Not plugged in.


The Devouring Gray
The Devouring Gray by Christine Lynn Herman
On the edge of town a beast haunts the woods, trapped in the Gray, its bonds loosening…
Uprooted from the city, Violet Saunders doesn’t have much hope of fitting in at her new school in Four Paths, a town almost buried in the woodlands of rural New York. The fact that she’s descended from one of the town’s founders doesn’t help much, either—her new neighbours treat her with distant respect, and something very like fear. When she meets Justin, May, Isaac, and Harper, all children of founder families, and sees the otherworldly destruction they can wreak, she starts to wonder if the townsfolk are right to be afraid.
When bodies start to appear in the woods, the locals become downright hostile. Can the teenagers solve the mystery of Four Paths, and their own part in it, before another calamity strikes?

He hadn’t see the latest body, but the remains of the corpses spat out by the Gray always looked the same. Eyes bleached the color of milk. The ribcage inverted, bones slicing through bloated skin like antlers rising from the body’s back.


  1. Bad Girls Don't Die is a book I've always been curious about. I've not heard of The Devouring Gray but I love the cover! Both teasers are creepy!

  2. Ooh, that The Devouring Gray teaser only makes me more excited to finally get a chance to check it out. I hadn't heard of Bad Girls Don't Die before, but it sounds really interesting.

  3. OOoh man! I am liking these creepy teasers!! Lol! I can't wait to read The Devouring Gray at some point! Maybe soonish even!
