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

Who's ready to be BAD? And by bad, I mean by breaking the two lines rule! And furthering that and using 2 teasers I couldn't decide between! Ironically within the first two pages too! LOL!

"I woke up to my ex-fiance calling. Which was awkward, considering we'd broken up only two months ago and I was in another guy's apartment. Even more awkward when that guy wasn't the one I was currently dating. In my defense, I was on the couch." p. 1

"'I still feel bad. It was a nice car.' I paused. 'I'm also sorry about almost getting you killed.'

'She says, as an afterthought.'

'It was a really nice car.'" p 2

TITLE: Deceptions
AUTHOR: Kelley Armstrong

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 Characters Who Are Fellow Book Nerds

*in no particular order

And oooh tough one!! Can't think of too many bookworms, but I have a few book nerds who are the super smart type as well! So let's give this a go!!

 1. KATY from Obsidian--naturally! Us book bloggers got to stick together!!
2. MATILDA from House Immortal--books are a rare commodity, so when Matilda gets her hands on one, she's very happy!
3. HERMIONE from Harry Potter--Hermione is the smart one! She's more book nerd that book worm, but in that super smart sense. Aka something I'll never be because I'm reading my paranormals!

4. MARY ANN from Intertwined--another book smart girl! But hey, it's still reading! But I adored her character! My heart still ACHES that this one is cancelled! Makes it worse that Goodreads still shows a book 4! SOBS!
5. ANNELISE from Isle of Night--yet another genius type girl! She goes from being book smart to needing to learn to be tough and fight! And wow! I love this series, though it seems to be in limbo. TEARS! 
6. ECHO from The Girl at Midnight--Echo is a reader too! She actually lives in a secret room in the library!

7. SYDNEY from Bloodlines--yet another book nerd! She's our super smart Alchemist and knows sooo much! I feel dumb in comparison!! LOL!
8. MAC & BARRONS from Darkfever--using both of them since they both end up working in Barron's bookstore!
9. GEORGINA from Succubus Blues--yet another heroine who works in a bookstore! If I ever worked there, I wouldn't get a paycheck cause it'd likely be spent before I got it and I'd owe them! 

10. BELLE--because it counts! LOL! Beauty and the Beast is based off the fairy tale Beauty and the Beast. Belle stemmed from Beauty, and just so happens to love books! Oh, and there are plenty of film to storybook adaptations of this Disney story, so Belle in those books, loves books!

You wouldn't believe how long it took me to pick out the right Belle picture! I was going to choose her reading a book, but the better quality images didn't show her face very well, or she wasn't smiling.

And omg, googling Disney pics is both fun and horrifying!! You see amazing pics from the movie or other artist creations, but then there are some who muck things up! Turning Belle into a boy...having her kiss Phoebus from The Hunchback of Norte Dame! Horror stories!!!



  1. Deceptions sounds fun! I love Kelley Armstrong. Great list! A few of these I haven't read. Oh, of course Belle counts, especially since there are so many retellings in YA!

    My TTT

  2. I love Barrons and Mac and their nerdiness. And of course you have to love Belle and Hermione.

  3. I like the teaser! And...yay! Belle!!!

    My TT

  4. O...kay. I'm totally confused by your tease. Not sure what's going on there.

  5. I didn't know about Deceptions, but it sounds intriguing!
    Also, nice list, Jessica!! Of course, Belle is one of my faves, too ;)

    Here's my TT :)

  6. Yay! You're right I'm excited to see Echo! Great picks :)

    Christina @ Books & Prejudice

  7. Great teasers. There were wonderful lines in that book. My teaser this week comes from Wolf Trouble by Paige Tyler. Happy reading!

  8. I love Kelly Armstrong and have some of her books, so I didn't even need to read the teaser to know I wanted this. :-)

    sherry @ fundinmental My TT

  9. So mad that I forgot Hermione! It should be so obvious! Ugh.

    Andrea @ Bookish Lifestyle

  10. Great TTT list this week! Seems like everyone is in consensus about Hermoine :) Thanks also for sharing that teaser from Deceptions; I have the first two books from the series on my to-read queue xD

    My TTT

  11. Great list here and some of my favs, for sure. Woohoo, for our list matching some. I cannot believe how many I forgot though that I love and didn't include! And others that I couldn't really figure out a way to include because Blogger was being a brat for me last night.

    My Top Ten List ~ Happy Reading!

  12. Surprisingly I've read 6/10 books in your top ten Tuesday list! YAY for books! The other book nerd one I love is an adult paranormal romantic comedy: Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs by Molly Harper. It's hilarious and she's a librarian!!!! A must read! Happy Tuesday!

  13. Yes, I went with Matilda, too!


  14. Awesome list!! I love that you included Belle too! She is obviously my #1 favorite bookworm (Hermione is a close second)!

    Here are my Top Ten!

  15. I love Kelley Armstrong and would definitely keep reading Deceptions. I hope you enjoy it!

    Just the mention of Darkfever and I want to go home and curl up with the next book in the series. I loved Darkfever. I don't know why I haven't continued with the series yet.

  16. I like her last comment about the car. LOL This sounds like a lovely tangled mess!

    Here's my TT - http://fuonlyknew.com/2015/07/28/teaser-tuesdays-123-onyx-webb/

  17. Great picks! I wish I had thought of Mac or Sydney!

    Thanks for stopping by My TTT!

  18. I forgot Hermione. How is this even possible? Like the most bookish character of all that would definitely beat all my other bookish characters on the list...brain fart. :/

  19. Interesting teasers. I love book nerds in books.

  20. Your teasers have me wanting that book like now. Loved them. I would agree with your whole list- Belle of course is the ultimate book nerd- who lands a prince!

    My Teaser

  21. Totally forgot about Sydney, AHHHHH how could I forget her.

    Awesome list!
