Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Ambrosia at 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 Moon Shimmers by Yasmine Galenorn, book #19 in the Otherworld/Sisters of the Moon series.
“You ventured Earthside expecting something totally different than what you ended up with. It’s bound to be a shock, but you’re adapting and you’re not fighting it. That’s the key – to go with the flow. To ride the current of your personal destiny and surrender to what it means to you. I’m not saying you don’t ever make new goals and try out something that seems foreign to you. But it means that you quit trying to control the universe, because nobody can do that. In the long run, we’re the sum total of where our journeys have led us. If you fight the journey, you end up stagnant or backtracking.”
Wise words from our favorite shaman. These girls are going through a whole lotta stuff, but hey, we’re almost to the finale!

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

Obviously this doesn’t count the books that I am currently reading, but it does count what I am trying to get through for the rest of December. So here we go.
- Blood Bonds by Yasmine Galenorn
- A Beautifully Foolish Endeavor by Hank Green
- The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton
- Wilder Girls by Rory Power
- The Dust of 100 Dogs by A.S. King
- Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
- The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau
- The People of Sparks by Jeanne DuPrau
- The Prophet of Yonwood by Jeanne DuPrau
- The Diamond of Darkhold by Jeanne DuPrau
This includes some new books off my TBR that I’ve owned for a bit but haven’t had a chance to read yet, plus a couple of re-reads and another series (Book of Ember) off my “Complete the Series” challenge, which will continue into next year.
Please leave your teasers and top tens in comments!
