BB Book Tours

Sooooooooooooo let me first just say - I loved this book!  It was great - fresh and exciting!

Today is my stop of the tour and I'm so sorry my post is so late!  **hiding**  I had a ton to do this morning and have not been feeling well this past week, but that's another story...  so on to the book - today I have so much stuff for you - a little short review (i'll post a full review later), an excerpt, & a giveaway!

So first off - here's the cover (which is BEAUTIFUL) and the blurb:

A girl with an unknown destiny. 

A boy from a hidden world. 

When Celeste starts at a new school in a small, Kansas town, she hears whispering voices, has vivid nightmares, and swarms of blackbirds follow her every move. She is oddly drawn to aloof Rylan, the other new student who has his own secrets. 

The exact moment she turns seventeen, she wakes to a bedroom full of strange creatures, purple light emanating from her hands, and Rylan breaking in through her bedroom window.

He knows what she is . . .

Quick Review

Let me just say - I love this book!  It is not every day that an awesome book is set in Kansas!  The town described in this book and the high school - is totally where I grew up!  SERIOUSLY!

Now I have an excerpt from you!!!!!!! It's awesome - check it out!!!

“Rylan?” she whispered into the dark. No answer. She sat down at her desk chair to wait for his return. 
“Don’t sit. We need to go.” He was back, holding the window open for her. Her bedroom door was closed. 
“Quit showing off,” she said. He went out the window first then helped her down. “Where did you go, anyways?” she asked.
“Just made sure your parents were in a deep sleep, that’s all.” He took her hand then led her through the forest again. It was much easier to navigate with shoes and socks. She followed him, expecting him to lead her to his parked car. But instead, he stopped. 
Keeping her left hand firmly grasped in his right, he pulled her close, then rotated her body until they were face to face. He took her other hand with his free hand. Their faces were only inches apart, and she was painfully aware of how close his body was to hers. She looked up into his face.
He said nothing, but watched her with golden-flecked eyes. In the dark, they had some subtle luminescence.
He said nothing, and she stayed still.
Finally, he spoke, in the lowest voice she’d heard him use. “Please be careful. We can’t trust her.” 
“Okay,” she said. 
“I want to try something.” He dropped her hands, but replaced them with something better. He wrapped his arms around her waist then pulled her against him. Their bodies pressed together, spreading warmth to new places in the cold night. 
Her breath caught in her throat. 
He leaned closer. “Do you trust me?”
“Close your eyes.” His breath moved the baby hairs framing her face. 
She did, expecting his lips to press on hers in the dark. Instead, her body was ripped violently into motion, like taking the first drop-off on a roller coaster. 

please go get this book and read it!
