PeekAbook: Tyger Tyger

Tyger Tyger
A Goblin Wars Book
by Kersten Hamilton
read the ARC online for free

Description from NetGalley:
Teagan Wylltson's best friend, Abby, dreams that horrifying creatures--goblins, shape-shifters, and beings of unearthly beauty but terrible cruelty--are hunting Teagan. Abby is always coming up with crazy stuff, though, so Teagan isn't worried. Her life isn't in danger. In fact, it's perfect. She's on track for a college scholarship. She has a great job. She's focused on school, work, and her future. No boys, no heartaches, no problems.

Until Finn Mac Cumhaill arrives. Finn's a bit on the unearthly beautiful side himself. He has a killer accent and a knee-weakening smile. And either he's crazy or he's been haunting Abby's dreams, because he's talking about goblins, too . . . and about being The Mac Cumhaill, born to fight all goblin-kind. Finn knows a thing or two about fighting. Which is a very good thing, because this time, Abby's right.

Lock the windows and doors. Turn on every light. And pray. Because the goblins are coming.


NetGalley allows people to request e-galleys of (so far) 6 publishers (including Houghton Mifflin Harcourt's children's and YA books) -- before the paper ARCs are even printed. You can find NetGalley here:

Thanks to Kersten for this heads up!


Questions for book bloggers:

Do you read ebooks?

Have you heard of NetGalley before?

Does NetGalley appeal to the way you read as a reviewer?


  1. This book sounds very interesting.

    I don't read ebooks, but this netgalley seems like a good idea.

  2. A triple No for me. I love the smell and feel of books, they are part of my reading enjoyment

  3. Hi Velvet,

    just wanted to let you know that you have an award waiting for you here.

    Have a great weekend :-) Stella

    ps: I don't read ebooks as I don't ahve an eReader yet, but Netgalley sounds great!

  4. Hi...I do read most of my books on my Kindle now and love it...I have tried netgalley...they are amazing about giving you books to read and review...however...I have found that on my Kindle I still have to pay for sending it too me...some books were between $3.00 to $5.00 and I don't like the formatting...I think it is similar to reading an ARC or unproofed copy...I like the book to be formatted with words spaced properly and so far my netgalley books were not nicely formatted. Also...they come with numbers not titles and that bothers me too...but probably just me...

  5. I love NetGalley, hehe. Its a great way to receive books for review, specially when you are international...

  6. I have been a NetGalley user since I started blogging. Though it takes a back burner most days to what I read, as I do prefer actual books. I do however, read from them everyday with bible study.
