Teaser Tuesday: Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To 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
  • 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!  

Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake.

Girl of Nightmares -
Tor Teen


There is no dead thing haunting the mall.
It’s too busy, too bright, and too lotion-y.
-- Page 42

When my shoes crunch against the gravel the sound brings a flash of nostalgia, a jolt that takes me back six months, when the Victorian still stood and I used to come at night to talk to the dead girl inside it.
Warm, fuzzy memories.
-- Page 108


When you are a ghost hunter, isn't it a bit contradictory to fall in love with the ghost you should be killing? 
Ghost hunter (and not ghostbuster!) Cas Lowood doesn't think so. He is on a mission to get his love back from Hell and it seems that nothing can stop him.  
Girl of Nightmares is the sequel to Anna Dressed in Blood, which it took quite some time for me to pick up, because I thought the topic might be too scary for me. It isn't. If anything, it's fascinating. Girl of Nightmares is full of action and even more suspenseful than the first book has been, but I also like it so much more. Cas is more active and takes things into his own hands without relying on others to do it for him. He is driven by purpose and I wonder if his love will be able to conquer death in the end.

Which book are you reading right now? Anything scary? :) Tell us in the comments!

Love the teasers! Anna Dressed in Blood was one of my favorite reads last year and for some reason Girl of Nightmares is still sitting on my shelf unread. :/ I'll have to rectify that soon.

Here's my TT

Glad you're enjoying!!!
