Teasers and Top Tens – 1/15/19

tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Purple Booker. Here are the rules if you want 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 wouldn’t have let that happen, of course. I’d have insisted we bring him back to the Aventine before sending him back to his House, cover blown. And I knew these people well enough to know that they’d have agreed, no matter how angry they were. But looking at [him] now, I realized that he hadn’t known that.

Terrestrial Magic by Marina Ermakova

This book has been fun to read! A review will be up Thursday.

TTT-NEW

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is:

Top Ten New-to-Me Authors I Read In 2018

Unfortunately, I can only give you five. Last year was a lot of re-reads and trying to finish series I had started in previous years. But these five authors were great and I enjoyed them immensely.

  1. Jenny Lawson (Furiously Happy and Let’s Pretend This Never Happened) – I loved, loved, LOVED her books and now I check in to her website every day.
  2. Jamie Ayers (My So-Called Afterlife series) – This was a pleasant surprise, as what seemed to be an average, run-of-the-mill YA book turned into an epic story.
  3. Kate Moore (The Radium Girls) – This book was so well done and made me want to start reading more non-fiction this year. It really opened my eyes.
  4. Megan Curd (Periodic series) – Another pleasant surprise from a freebie from BookBub. Read the first two books and would love to see the third one whenever it comes out.
  5. Cindy Pon (Want) – A YallFest author that I knew nothing about. Her book was excellent, a dystopian tale set in a part of the world I never read about.

That’s it for this Tuesday! Leave your teasers and top tens in comments!
