Good morning and Happy Tuesday one and all! Kicking things off with Teaser Tuesday, hosted by MizB over at “Should Be Reading.” Here are the rules if you would like to play along:
• 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!
I watched a lot of YouTube videos of cute geeky girls playing ’80s cover tunes on ukuleles. Technically, this wasn’t part of my research, but I had a serious cute-geeky-girls-playing-ukuleles fetish that I can neither explain nor defend.
– Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
It’s quotes like these which show why I love this book so much. Deadly serious plot line interjected with quirky quips like this one. I’ve really been enjoying this re-read.
Next up is Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the folks over at “The Broke and the Bookish.” This topic is actually pretty easy for me, to be honest. Easy questions are nice to get once in a while. It’s the beginning of a new season (or almost), and that means it’s time to talk about the books on our To-Be-Read list. So here’s what’s currently staring at me from the stack on my desk.
Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR
1. Where She Went by Gayle Forman – I just finished If I Stay, which was a beautiful book, so per my rules from January, I need to complete the series. Fortunately, there is only one other book in this series, so completing it is easy. And, according to their website, the library branch closest to my house has a copy! Score!
2. Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham – I am really looking forward to reading this! I adore Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls is still one of my favorite things ever) and I’m curious to see what her writing is like. Plus, I’ve heard a lot of good things about it.
3-5. Divergent, Insurgent, and Allegiant by Veronica Roth – The next book on my stack is Divergent, which I have heard from everyone is wonderful, amazing, and the thing I MUST read. Now. Okay, then. I will. And I’ve included the next two books in the series as well (see rule above), although I don’t think Allegiant is out yet. I think it comes out next month. Am I right, Internet? I’ll get it when it comes out then.
6-8. White Cat, Red Glove, and Black Heart by Holly Black – I have a copy of White Cat, the first book in the Curse Workers series. I’ve also heard some pretty good buzz about these books too, so I’ve added the next two books to the list as well.
9. The Treachery of Beautiful Things by Ruth Frances Long – I have loved this book ever since I saw the title and the cover art. I almost don’t care how good the story is. Okay, that isn’t true. Still, I’m intrigued. It has drawn me in and convinced me to buy it, which is what a cover and a title is supposed to do.
10. Beastly by Alex Flinn – I actually got this book off a Top Ten Tuesday list, I think about retellings of fairy tales or something like that. Unfortunately I don’t remember who recommended it. I think several people did, actually. It’s a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, so that sounds promising.

Allegiant is out soon! I can’t wait, I’m reading Insurgent soon. I agree though with loads of people that Divergent is a good book! 😀 Great choices.
I think Divergent is the book that has been recommended to me the most lately. Looking forward to reading it! 🙂
Enjoy the Divergent series! I’m anxiously awaiting the release of the last book. I want to read the Lauren Graham book too, though it didn’t make it onto my top 10 list. Happy reading!
I hear Alligent is very highly anticipated. Can’t wait to find out what all the excitement is about!
I think Allegiant comes out this month… could be wrong. I’m looking forward to it anyway, hope you like this series as much as I did! Ready Player One sounds kind of awesome, I’ll have to add it to my wish list. Thanks honey. 🙂
Ready Player One is all kinds of awesome, especially if you like video games. It’s one of the most original books I’ve read in a while, plus it’s just plain fun.
Original sounds good! 🙂
I like quirky quotes too. They add spice to a book and relieve tension in serious scenes. Good teaser. My Teaser is from SMOKE, WINGS & STONE.
That’s one of the things I adore about Ready Player One. It balances the two out perfectly.:)
LOL That’s funny.
Glad I could share! I really liked yours as well!
You are in for a treat with Black and Roth’s books. Loved ’em.
I’m really looking forward to reading them. I’ve read other books by Holly Black, and really enjoyed them, but Veronica Roth is new to me.
Your teaser was a teaser. I went to Goodreads and looked it up. Thanks for giving me another book on my TBR list. 😉
Any time! Hope you enjoy it!
