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 while I am not currently reading this one, I did just finish it the other day and I had marked a teaser because I thought it was too perfect! And since at the time of writing this post I am not yet starting my current read, I decided to share this one instead! If you've read the series I think this will definitely be teasing!

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 Things On My Bookish Bucket List

*in no particular order

1. Read 200 books--my goal is 150, but I am hoping to maybe get up to 200
2. Meet NEW Authors--Page Morgan is going to be at RT, so that's one author I have yet to meet!
3. Read 25% of the books I already own (hopefully!)

4. Kick myself in the butt and get working on my current novel that has been giving me trouble for the past year
5. Pitch my first novel at RT to an agent
6. Self publish my first novel if the first proves to be unsuccessful

7. Read new and new to me authors (like Danielle Paige!)
8. Learn how to self publish as a backup to traditional
9. Try to host more giveaways

10. Try to get a better handle with Twitter and tweeting book reviews


  1. I think self publishing is a great idea!

    Good luck with your kick in the but along with the twitter thing :)

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT :)

  2. Great teaser. You have a ton of great items on your bucket list. Good luck at pitching your novel. I've done it a few times now and feel it gets easier the more you do it.

    Thanks for visiting my Top Ten at

  3. Love the bucket list! Best of luck getting your novel going! I should probably borrow your "read 25% of the books you own" thing because the amount of unread books I have is getting crazy!

  4. Love your Teaser. I'm wondering what caused snow in hell!
    My Teaser is from SEVEN LITTLE WORDS.

  5. "I hope he falls off a ladder at work."
    "I hope he gets hit by a truck."
    "A garbage truck."

    Eleanor & Park--Rainbow Rowell

  6. Great Top 10 list. #3 and #7 would be on my list too.

  7. I like the teaser. I have an eARC and can't wait to read it. You have a really nice list of goals too. Thanks for visiting my blog. Happy reading!

  8. Nice tease.
    Good luck with publishing your book and the rest of your goals.

  9. Good luck reading 200 books! My goal is 150 and I did 150 last year, so hopefully I can keep it the same this year.

    I love how this is a Top 10 Tuesday! You may also want to link up to the original Bookish Bucket List, too!

  10. Great list, you have some great goals and I hope you have a lot of luck with them. Also, loving the cover of your Teaser Tuesday book - so pretty :) Happy Tuesday!

  11. Great teaser. I like it! Nice bucket list, too! I don't think I have any chance of reading 200 books this year. I'll be happy with 50-75. It'd be great to pull off 200.

  12. I think you do really well with your giveaways myself. At least I notice that you always have them on here. So I think you are doing just great in that area!

  13. Great teaser and cool list! I'm so sure that you will be able to finish and publish your book anytime now! :)

  18. Great list! I'd love to be able to read 200 books in a year, but I think it's a long way off! Thanks for stopping by my blog.
