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.
A rare treat, I only have 1 line this time!! Within the rule, yet still breaking it since it's not 2! ;)
"I gazed heavenward with irritation, then turned back to my journal, finishing another detail on my sketch--the man's other eyeball succumbing to the pressure, dangling besides the first." Kindle p 32

TITLE: Poison Princess
AUTHOR: Kresley Cole

GENRE: Dystopian YA--kinda sorta--maybe apocalyptic?

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.

  1. Interesting teaser! I already have Kresley Cole's titles on my TBR pile ;)

    Here's my TT!

  2. Ooh, I want to read The Poison Princess, too. Great tease - sounds like the heroine might be snarky! ;)

    As for books that made you (& me) cry - I'm right there with you for Prey. And HP, too. I can't remember if I cried over For a Few Demons more though. Hmm...

    Happy Tuesday, Jessica!

  3. Ughh! What a teaser! Here's mine:



  4. Beautiful cover! Not so sure about the teaser, though! Enjoy!
    Here's my teaser.

  5. It's been so long since I read the HP series that I forgot how emotional they really are. All these lists are bringing it back. Great list, and thanks for checking out mine!

    TTT @ Krista's Dust Jacket

  6. Great teaser. I've heard lots of good things about Poison Princess and it's been on my TBR forever! Hope you're enjoying it. For the TTT list, HP? Check. Girl of Nightmares? I think I got teary eyed, but can't remember if I actually cried. Maybe a little bit. Loved it either way. And I haven't read Allegiant yet, but I hope to get to it really soon. Can't wait! :D :D Thanks for stopping by my blog. Happy Tuesday!

  7. Dangling eyeballs? Ick! I'm not sure if I'd like this book or not, but you sure chose an interesting teaser.
    My Teaser is from CAPE MAYBE.

  8. Great list!

  9. That's a great teaser - didn't exactly end the way I was expecting! And I love the cover - I need to go check the book out. I think it may already be on my way-too-long TBR.

    And your list of books that made you cry had quite a few that would overlap with mine. I also cried like a baby in the last 3 Harry Potter Books because of - Sirius, Dumbledore, and Dobby (+ a ton more, but Dobby was the one the killed me).

  10. Creepy teaser, Jessica! I haven't read Poison Princess yet, but goodness me, now I know I will soon.

    Love the books you featured for your tear-jerkers!

  14. Great picks! I just used HP7 but the last three all made me sob like babies!!! Thanks for checking out my TTT.

  20. Nice tease. I've been meaning to read this one. Ah, she sighs. So many books on my TBR list.

    Thanks for stopping by my TV


  21. Hmmm...I'm trying to picture the tease. Dangling eye?

  22. Wooow! Great list. I really should read a few on this list.
    And I am sure I would cry reading some of them.


  23. I don't think I've ever cried when I read Harry Potter books but I might need to re-read them again lol Great list!

  24. I read Kresley Cole for the first time last month and enjoyed the three books I read by her.

    I am such a big cry baby when it comes to books. LOL

  25. I'm really mad at myself for forgetting to include Harry Potter! I cried a lot over a bunch of those. Allegiant was a killer too and gosh I forgot about Girl of Nightmares as well. Great picks!

    Teresa @ Readers Live A Thousand Lives

  26. Nice teaser. Here's mine.
    I cried while reading that part in Harry Potter where Sirius Black dies.

  27. Thanks for stopping by my TTT! Those Harry Potter books are definitely heartbreaking. So many wonderful/favorite characters gone! :'(

  28. Keep seeing Allegiant this week :( I don't want to cry

  29. Oh, yes, totally cried in Harry Potter. I was sad in Allegiant, but I confess I did not cry. Nice teaser. I see this book all the time but have yet to read it.
