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, I struggled to pick just one teaser this week, because I am soooo enjoying Reborn! Della freaking rocks! So here are two teasers that are nearly following the rules. I do have one with Della saying 4 lines after a character says 1, but rule breaking is just too fun! I think Della is rubbing off on me! ;)

"'Can't you give a guy a break?' he finally asked.
'Arm? Leg? Neck? You name it, I'll break it." p 96*

* * * * * *

"'Geez, what's with the entire camp wanting to know about my menstrual cycle? Can't some things just be private?'" p 126*

 *These quotes comes from my ARC copy, therefore they and the page numbers are not final.

TITLE: Reborn
AUTHOR: C.C. Hunter

PUBLISHER: St. Martin's Griffin
GENRE: Paranormal YA
RELEASE DATE: May 20, 2014

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 Characters Who Stole My Heart!

*in no particular order

1. Valek (Maria V. Snyder's Study trilogy)--yeah, he totally swept me away!
2. Hunter (Jennifer L. Armentrout's stand-alone in the Lux series that will hopefully one day be a series!)--how can you NOT be swept away by this man?!
3. Daemon (Jennifer L. Armentrout's Lux series)--all right, I feel a little skeevy over this one, since I'm older than Daemon, but oh my! 

4. Clay (Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series)--he can come off a bit alpha male like, but he has a good heart and I loooove his accent!
5. Marc (Rachel Vincent's Shifters series)--he's a good guy too! Gotta love his devotion to the girl who can't get her act together, but does in the end!
6. Ethan (Chloe Neill's Chicagoland Vampires series)--sigh...Ethan...

7. Reyes (Darynda Jones' Charley Davidson series)--love that man!
8. Barrons (Karen Marie Moning's Fever series)--a definite alpha male, but you gotta love him!
9. Bones (Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress series)--of course! Does this man need explaining?

10. David (Rachel Caine's Weather Warden series)--my favorite Djinn!
