Teasers & Top Tens – December 27, 2022

tuesday

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 is from Daughter of the Moon Goddess by Sue Lynn Tan.

The doors closed after him. My anger roiling over, I snatched his cup and hurled it at the wall, the delicate porcelain shattering into countless fragments – impossible to ever be made whole again.

She sounds angry, yes, but boy does she have a good reason!

Top Ten Tuesday

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

Ten Most Recent Additions to My Book Collection

The holidays are mostly over, so I can list a few (not quite ten) that I received as gifts.

First, I received my Secret Santa gift from the TBTBSanta exchange! Thanks to Essentially Ash for these three lovely books:

  • Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson
  • Pretty Girl-13 by Liz Coley
  • A Danger to Herself and Others by Alyssa B. Sheinmel

I also received a book as a gift from my in-laws! They are so awesome and I love them so much. I just wish they didn’t live half the country away. Anyway, they got me this classic:

  • Parable of the Sower by Octavia E. Butler

Lastly is a book that I haven’t technically purchased yet, but I will be buying it with one of my gift cards for next month’s book club read over at Fable, so I’m going to count it.

  • Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin

That’s not ten books, only five, but I am so excited to read them all eventually. And this number of books received may change because . . . today is my birthday! Yep, I was almost a Christmas baby. I don’t think I’ll be getting any new books today, but you never know. 🙂

Please leave your teasers and top tens in comments!

  2. Zevin’s book is super popular right now and I’ve seen it on so many shelves today. I need to read it!

  3. Happy Birthday! And I hope you enjoy reading all of these when you get the chance.
