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, so I'm going to give you a tease from one of my reads yesterday. Yes, it's not my current read, but I hadn't started my current read at the time of this post and really wanted to share this teaser with you anyway! I loved it!

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: Ten Books That Will Be In My Beach Bag This Summer
We'll say this is a metaphorical beach bag since I don't have a beach to go to!

*in no particular order

Going to try to keep this list to books I have, since when I started it, I was picking new releases and that's a topic for a week to come! So had to amend it!

1. Mortal Danger by Ann Aguirre--true, it's a review book, but one that had me curious
2. Midnight Thief by Livia Blackburne--another review book, but again, more curiosity
3. Wings by Elizabeth Richards--dying to see how this trilogy ends!

4. Shattered by Kevin Hearne--an adult book, finally! ;)
5. Black Rook by Kelly Meade--curious about this new series of hers!
6. Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult & Samantha Van Leer--one I've had since its release and signing day!

7. Dead Girls are Easy by Terri Garey--might start getting a little overly optimistic by choosing TBR books from the bottom of the stacks
8. Night World: Volume 1 by L.J. Smith--from a Borders closing sale :'(
9. Taste if the Nightlife by Sarah Zettel--from my first RT in 2010!

10. Spells by Arpilynne Pike--another series I've had in my TBR pile for far too long!


  1. Lots of new to me picks - Although I also have Spells in my TBR pile and have for…well waaay too long. Happy reading!

    My Top Ten Summer Reads

    - Jenn @ Tale of Two Doxies

  2. Great picks. I really want to read Midnight Thief and Mortal Danger, they both look great. I love Jodi Picoult but admit to not liking Between the Lines very much at all. I hope you manage to get to them all, here's mine.

  3. Mmm... that's an interesting tease. I like the cover of this book too.

    Thanks for stopping by my tease.

  4. I'm on a search this week for some very relaxing reads. Thanks for your suggestions!

    Here's my Best Beach Bag Books!

  5. Good teaser, glad she decided not to kill him!

  6. Nice cover and the teaser was a good choice.


  7. I love your teaser, Jessica :) You definitely made me interested. And your top ten is great, too! I hope you have a big beach bag :)

    Thanks for stopping by earlier. Happy reading.

  8. The Midnight Thief! I've heard such great things- I can't wait to start it! I'm also interested in Ann's newest! Enjoy!

  9. Mortal Danger and Wings are definitely on my summer reading list! Definitely some interesting choices!

  10. I am looking forward to Mortal Danger, great picks, enjoy :)

  11. I really enjoyed both Sarah Zettel's book and Terri Garey's for the humour more than anything else. I hope you enjoy them.

  12. Not try to kill him? That doesn't seem like fun. I loved the Nigh World Series so much that I keep a copy of it in my classroom for my students to read. Hate that a book store was closing though.

    My Teaser

  13. Your first 3 books for Top Ten Tuesday are really intriguing covers! I've seen Midnight Thief around at other blogs but I haven't seen Mortal Danger or Wings before. Definitely going to check them out.

    Thanks for stopping by my TT post!
