Teasers & Top Tens – 3/17/20

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! 

This week’s teaser comes from Wanderers by Chuck Wendig.

On one hand, you had pools, golf courses, cabins. Grand landscaping spread out, framed by manicured lakes with long docks and copses of trees lit with the fires of autumnal colors. On the other hand, the ARM militia: men and women in camo, assault rifles everywhere, trucks and tanks and fake soldiers testing drones over those expanses of resort area landscape. Off in the distance came the sound of practiced gunfire. In another direction, the ground-juddering whump of an explosives test.

This is a really good book, but with recent events being what they are, I don’t know if this is the best thing to be reading right now.

TTT-NEW

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

Ten Books On My Spring 2020 TBR

Given that I am trying to pull myself out of a reading slump, the short answer is: ANYTHING!!! But here are five that I am planning on getting to, since I don’t think I can commit to ten right now.

  1. The Starless Sea by Erin Morganstern – This is on my husband’s reading list for this year and I need to read it before my he does!
  2. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins – I was doing a re-read of this series but stalled out in the middle of Catching Fire when the reading slump hit. So let’s get back to it, shall we?
  3. A Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir – I was so happy when I finished A Torch Against the Night at the end of last year, but then, again, stopped reading.
  4. Legend by Marie Lu – This has been on my shelf for years and is part of my #StartOnYourShelfathon challenge.
  5. Perdido Street Station by China Mieville – Same as Legend. And besides, it’s a modern classic.

I will also probably throw some re-reads in there to try and help with slump issues.

Please leave your teasers and top tens in comments!
