Welcome to my favorite blogging day of the week! First up is Teaser Tuesdays, hosted by MizB at “Should Be Reading.” Here’s how to play:
• 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!
My teaser doesn’t tease very much, since it’s from a book that most people have read by now.
“I AM NOT PAYING FOR SOME CRACKPOT OLD FOOL TO TEACH HIM MAGIC TRICKS!” yelled Uncle Vernon.
But he had finally gone too far. Hagrid seized his umbrella and whirled it over his head, “NEVER –” he thundered, “INSULT — ALBUS — DUMBLEDORE — IN — FRONT — OF — ME!”
– Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
Yep, I am currently re-reading the Harry Potter books! 🙂 The podcast is doing a big Harry Potter party in July. Expect several “teasers” from them over the next few weeks.
Next up is Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by “The Broke and the Bookish.” This week’s topic is so easy. You only want ten? I can give you a lot more than that! But I won’t. These are all the new books that I haven’t gotten around to reading yet, but will be read this summer, by hook or by crook!

I’m not going to count the Harry Potter books, although they’re definitely on there.

I have never read any of the Harry Potter Movies (I know shame on me). I have seen the movies though. Here is my TT http://cynthia2729.wordpress.com/2013/06/18/teaser-tuesday-june-18/
You really do need to read the books. They are so much better than the movies, although I love the movies too.
I have been meaning to I just never have the time with all the other stuff I want to read. 😦
I liked the Harry Potter series!
Here is my teaser post
And here is my top ten post:
One of my favorite series of all time, and I read a lot! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
Great top ten! Fire & Divergent are amazing:)
I’ve heard really good things about both books. Can’t wait to read them. 🙂
I’ve heard good things about Someday, Someday Maybe. I’m going to try and read it very soon 🙂
I have to admit, I only bought the book because I love Lauren Graham so much. Gilmore Girls is one of my favorite TV shows of all time. I’ve also heard lots of good things about it, so I can’t wait to actually sit down and read it. 🙂
Nice to be reminded about Harry Potter. Come see my teasers for Heart of Obsidian by Nalini Singh and Ink by Amanda Sun. Happy reading!
We need to always remember Harry Potter! 🙂
Loved your teasers as well!
If I Stay is a heartbreakingly beautiful book. Great selection of books on your TBR list.
Here’s my TTT: http://www.bookythoughtsandme.com/top-ten-books-at-the-top-of-my-summer-tbr-list/
It came recommended very highly. I’ve heard lots of good things about it.
If I Stay and Divergent are two of my favourites – enjoy! 🙂
My (first!) TTT 🙂
I can’t wait to read them. Welcome to TTT, by the way!
I enjoyed your teaser from an “oldie” but “goodie”!
Here’s my Tuesday post: http://www.bookclublibrarian.com/2013/06/first-chapter-first-paragraph-18-and.html
I always see teasers and reviews of new books, but it’s fun to be reminded of older books that we love. 🙂
Loved the series, good teaser.
One of my favorites! I’m really enjoying re-reading it again.
I’ve got all the Potter books. Maybe it’s time for me to reread them too!
My Teaser is from THE LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS.
You can re-read them with our podcast, if you like (shameless plug). 😉 We’re going to have a good time, I think.
I have yet to read the Harry Potter series, so it was a teaser for me 🙂
I’m sure you hear this all the time, but YOU NEED TO READ THEM!!! Seriously, they are so worth it. 😉
I re-listen to the audio books on a regular basis. I can even “hear” Uncle Vernon’s voice right now. 😉 Great teaser!
Here’s our Teaser this week.
I haven’t listened to the audio books. I’m not really an audio book person. But I’ve heard that the Harry Potter ones are excellent.
Divergent! 🙂 I loved it, and Insurgent, and am anxiously awaiting Allegiant! 🙂 I also really loved Anna Dressed in Blood… wonderfully told and creeptastic.

I’ve heard nothing but good things about this whole series. I can’t wait to read it, but there are other books ahead of it in line. I’ll get to it soon, I promise!
