Teasers and Top Tens – 1/15/19


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.

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

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!

  1. Jenny Lawson is the best! I love her sense of humour and all of the work she’s doing to de-stigmatize mental illness.

    This is my Top Ten Tuesday post.

  2. I own Furiously Happy and really need to read it – this year!!


  3. Your teaser made me very curious. Thanks for sharing…and here’s mine: “THE RED ADDRESS BOOK”

  4. The Bloggess is the best! Interesting teaser. My Teaser is from Summoned to Thirteenth Grave by Darynda Jones.

  5. Good to see Furiously Happy on here!

  6. I only had 6 for this week’s prompt because I did lots of re-reads and reading old favorite authors as well! I read Want in 2017 and really liked it. The sequel is coming out soon (this month I believe?) and I hope I’ll make time for it this year.
