Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Purple Princess of The Purple Booker.
Here are the rules:
1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a page
4. Name the title, author, etc.
I am enjoying this book SO much more than I thought I would! After struggling through the Aladdin book and DNFing the Sleeping Beauty one I was almost afraid to read this one but decided to take a chance and wow!! It's everything I could've hoped for!
The teasers I'm about to share are good ones! In my opinion, at least! LOL! The first one is just one of the few moments where something that always puzzled me is answered! And of course what would a book involving Belle be without a bookish teaser?!
"He reached out a delicate claw and pulled all the strips of canvas back into place. The Prince was revealed yet again: tall and handsome and arrogantly looking into the viewer's eyes, challenging them to keep looking.
'The Enchantress put a spell on it so it would age with me--and show me how I would look if I was still human. If I hadn't failed her test. I'm...always reminded of who I could have been.'" p 190
"You had a magic mirror that let you see life outside your tiny world. Your castle. I had books. Reading them is like traveling to other places. Being other people. Living other lives. It made life far less...sad and lonely for me." p 223

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: Read In One Sitting Theme: Top Ten Books I Read in One Day!
*in no particular order
**this is going to take some extra thinking! A lot of my one day reads came from pre-Goodreads days! But THANKS to Goodreads I was able to find books to fill all the other slots!
***also going to bypass novellas and graphic novels for those are easily read in a day for me! Unless I started midday!
10. WHAT'S A GHOUL TO DO? by Victoria Laurie--I read a lot of this series in one day each! The latter books took longer because of that pesky job! ;)
9. DEMON IN MY VIEW by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes--not only did I read it multiple times, but it was definitely a 1-dayer!
8. LOST IN A BOOK by Jennifer Donnelly--I was surprised that this one took just one day!
7. THE BEAST WITHIN by Serena Valentino
6. OF TRITON by Anna Banks--started doing searches on my blog for one day reads and this one popped up!
5. FLIGHT by Alyssa Rose Ivy--pretty much ALL of her books have been one day reads for me! Unless I started it midday then sadly I had to wait until the next day to finish it!
4. THE WEREWOLF MEETS HIS MATCH by Kristen Painter
3. DAUGHTERS UNTO DEVILS by Amy Lukavics
2. SOUL CROSSED by Lisa Gail Green
1. BLED & BREAKFAST by Michelle Rowen
