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.

Okay, it's rule breaking time!! I had four teasers lined up--all over 2 lines, so quadruple the rule breaking--and I've successfully...possibly...maybe...okay, I did narrow it down to two three (yes, I read more and found another!) teasers!

"'And I was changing for my benefit, not yours.' I gestured grandly toward the room. 'The stage is yours, my friend.'

'I don't know what you expect me to do.'

I sat down on the bed and mirrored his posture. 'I expect you to take it off, and I expect you to shake it. In that order.'" p 162

"'Sometimes you make me swoon.'

'If it's only sometimes, I'm not doing my job adequately.'" p 170

"'Maybe, if you're very good, I'll bring back dinner.'

Ethan smiled wickedly and pressed a hard kiss to my lops. 'I'm rarely good, Merit. But I'm often spectacular.' 

He winkled and shut the door, and disappeared back into the House." p 258

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 Books I Would Love To See As A Movie/TV Show (set in a perfect which movies don't butcher the books we love.) 

*in no particular order

By Kelley Armstrong

It's happening in Canada, at least Bitten is. But not sure what that means for the US. While I'd LOVE to see the entire series transformed into a TV show or movie, I'd settled for the first book! Really hope it becomes available in US at some point in the very near future!

By Karen Marie Moning

 Ohhhh, now this would be a killer series to watch! Lots of action, romance, suspense and all sorts of weird fae creatures!!

by Maria V. Snyder

I have to put this one in here as well! Another awesome series! All the magic that's used would be awesome to see! Plus the action, romance and of course the comedy brought on by Janco!!

by Julie Kagawa

Oh how I loved this series! I guess focusing on Meghan's story. Ethan's is still too new just yet. This was an incredible series!

by Richelle Mead

This would make a great television series I think. One of the 1-hour ones! It was just another killer series that I totally enjoyed!

by Kim Harrison

We were so close to having a TV show, but alas, CW passed! This would make a great TV series I think! Hopefully another network will see the awesomeness in it!

by Darynda Jones

Ohhhh this sooooo needs to be a TV series I think! It's freaking hilarious, because Charley just rocks! Reyes is insanely HOT! And there's always a killer mystery, plus ghosts!! What more could you want?!

by Victoria Laurie

Speaking of good ghostly mysteries...this is another series that would make a good TV series! A nice creepy one too! When the ghosts showed up in some of these early books, it was scary since M.J. was on her own once Gilley ran screaming the other way!

by Nicole Peeler

Another series that would likely be good for TV! It was another one that always made me laugh because the characters were so awesome! Plus there was always some weird happenings going on!

by Jeaniene Frost

Probably one of the only ones that I think a movie lineup would be better! Only because these books were soooo kickass and awesome, that I would rather see them in full length then breaking up 1 book for 1 season. Of course, they would HAVE to cast the characters right! Not sure who I would pick for Cat and Bones, possibly newbies because this series was just so freaking awesome that it would need the best actors and lookalikes available!
