Don't get yourself noticed and you won't get yourself hanged.

In the faery slums of Bath, Bartholomew Kettle and his sister Hettie live by these words. Bartholomew and Hettie are changelings--Peculiars--and neither faeries nor humans want anything to do with them.

One day a mysterious lady in a plum-colored dress comes gliding down Old Crow Alley. Bartholomew watches her through his window. Who is she? What does she want? And when Bartholomew witnesses the lady whisking away, in a whirling ring of feathers, the boy who lives across the alley--Bartholomew forgets the rules and gets himself noticed.

First he's noticed by the lady in plum herself, then by something darkly magical and mysterious, by Jack Box and the Raggedy Man, by the powerful Mr. Lickerish . . . and by Arthur Jelliby, a young man trying to slip through the world unnoticed, too, and who, against all odds, offers Bartholomew friendship and a way to belong.

Part murder mystery, part gothic fantasy, part steampunk adventure, The Peculiar is Stefan Bachmann's riveting, inventive, and unforgettable debut novel.

My thoughts:

I thought this was an amazing book and I'm just loving the fact how Stefan has mixed gothic fantasy with murder mystery and steampunk adventure. 

When I got the mail about the blog tour asking if I would like to join this tour and I don't regret my answer at all since it tourned out to be this good:)

Stefan Bachmann had me enchanted while I was reading it and the writing is really good and easy to understand. I think many of you would like this book and that's way there'll be a giveaway (joined giveaway in five countries but also you can win copies of the book by me).

The book in the ending made me a little bit sad but it is good that part 2 will come soon so I can read what is going to happen in it.

If you are like me and likes this mysterious, gothic young adult book you just have to enter the giveaway:)
