Teaser & Top Ten Tuesdays

Here are the rules:
 
1. Grab your current read      
2. Open to a page
3. Pick out 2 lines that are SPOILER FREE
4. Name the title, author, etc


I am really liking this read so far! The combination of dystopian and fantasy is just super awesome! Also I got a real chuckle out of this one, because naturally my thoughts went straight to JAWS! ;)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.



This week's topic is: Top Ten Best Books I Read In 2015


*in no particular order



1. OBLIVION by Jennifer L. Armentrout--of course this is number 1!! More of Daemon is ALWAYS appreciated!!
2. THE GIRL AT MIDNIGHT by Melissa Grey--this one was so awesome and cool! I loved the mix of fantasy and modern world settings!!
3. NIGHT STUDY by Maria V. Snyder--perhaps cheating as it's a 2016 release, but I did just read it in 2015 and it was AMAZING! 


4. THE IRON WARRIOR by Julia Kagawa--the looooong waited finale and it was awesome! I was happy with how this series ended!
5. LION'S SHARE by Rachel Vincent--returning to the Pride is OH SO FUN! And I looooved seeing Abby and Jace again!! Or rather seeing them as a couple!
6. SURVIVE THE NIGHT by Danielle Vega--a totally awesome and creeptastic read! Oh this one was so twisted, but I LOVED it!


7. EVERY LAST BREATH by Jennifer L. Armentrout--not a top 2015 list without a few of JLA's books on here! Sadly, I've only read 2 so far this year. But they made my list!!
8. THE RULES by Nancy Holder & Debbie Viguie--I looooove this author duo's writing and was super excited for another series from them! It was incredible!
9. POWERLESS by Tera Lynn Childs & Tracy Deebs--another author duo! A new to me one though I loved Deebs' books already! This one was awesome! I mean it's superheroes and villains and it's not all black and white either!


10. A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES by Sarah J. Maas--while I couldn't get into her first series, I positively LOVED this one!! SOOOO excited for more in this series! Hoping it's long too! LOL!

  7. I like the description in your Teaser -- "white grin glows through the dust." Sounds like a well-written story.

  9. YES for ACOTAR! Such an amazing book! There are a few on your list that I still really want to read, especially Survive the Night. I loved The Merciless, so I'm sure this one is great too!

  11. Aaah! Why must you people torment me so, with lists of books I want to read, but haven't been able to get to so far? I need to learn to speed read or something. I think I'm definitely going to stop requesting ARCs for a while. *sobbing* I want to read The Red Queen too! I've only read the first Lux book, I haven't read any of these, though I really, really want to. This is a great list, Jessica. I'm kidding about the torment thing. Well, maybe only half kidding. ;) Thanks for visiting my TTT! Happy reading!

  12. I'm glad to see you're enjoying Red Queen. That book sounds amazing. And I haven't read anything on your TTT list, but I really wanna delve into Sarah J. Maas's work, because she has been all over the place lately. Great list!

    My TTT!

  30. You know, I keep looking at Oblivion and I don't pick it up because I'm afraid that it will ruin the series for me. I see that you have it in your top ten so I guess I will rethink it!
