Teasers & Top Tens – March 14, 2023


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 The Glass Hotel by Emily St. John Mandel.

This summons an unexpected memory of his mother. For three years after Lucas died, Alkaitis used to come home from school sometimes and find his mother sitting perfectly still in the living room, staring at nothing, like she was watching a film only she could see.

“Was he depressed?” Alkaitis asks.

“Bro, it’s prison. Everyone’s depressed.”

Top Ten Tuesday

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

Ten Books on My Spring 2023 To-Read List

My current plan for reading is as follows . . .

  1. The Road by Cormac McCarthy
  2. Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
  3. Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson
  4. Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck & Fortune by Roselle Lim
  5. The Fire Keeper’s Daughter by Angeline Boulley
  6. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
  7. The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
  8. The Retribution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
  9. Incubation by Laura DiSilverio
  10. Incineration by Laura DiSilverio

This plan knocks six books off of my “Beat the Backlist” challenge and one more series off my “Complete the Series” challenge. Progress!
