TBR Thursday: The Peculiar Incident on Shady Street

Hello my beautiful Narnians! I stumbled across this book blog meme, started by Kimberly Faye Reads.

It’s all about spotlighting a title from your shelf or eReader and seeing what other readers think about it. Have you read it? Should I read it or put it back on the shelf? It’s a way to dust off those older books that have been sitting on our TBR and decide if they’re worth reading or just need to be removed from the list!

This week I have a really great read, an ARC actually, slowly making the rounds on Bookstagram. Keep reading below to check out my latest TBR and share your thoughts.



The Peculiar Incident on Shady Street by  Lindsay Currie

This book cover reminds me of Coraline! I am so lucky to have received an ARC and even though this doesn’t release until October 10 2017 I think I might be ready to dive into something spooky amidst all my summery reads. I love a great mystery and this middle grade read seems like the perfect read to keep the heat at bay. 




A girl unravels a centuries-old mystery after moving into a haunted house in this deliciously suspenseful mystery.

Tessa Woodward isn’t exactly thrilled to move to rainy, cold Chicago from her home in sunny Florida. But homesickness turns to icy fear when unexplainable things start happening in her new house. Things like flickering lights, mysterious drawings appearing out of nowhere, and a crackling noise she can feel in her bones.

When her little brother’s doll starts crying real tears, Tessa realizes that someone—or something—is trying to communicate with her. And it involves a secret that’s been shrouded in mystery for more than one hundred years.

With the help of three new friends, Tessa begins unraveling the mystery of what happened in the house on Shady Street—and more importantly, what it has to do with her!


Normally I stay away from anything spooky but this book keeps calling my name. Do you enjoy spooky reads? Should I give it a shot?
