Teaser & Top Ten Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Purple Princess of The Purple Booker.

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.

"I wanted to dive back into Agathe Christie but instead settled for an oldie but a goodie, relying on Harry Potter and the whirlwind of the Triwizard Tournament to engage and tire me. Harry had just taken a bath with the golden egg, and my eyes started to flutter as Snape confronted him on the stairs.

Then...a laugh.

I heard it--I definitely heard it. A human laugh." p 130*

TITLE: Brightly Burning
AUTHOR: Alexa Donne
PUBLISHER: HMHBooks for Young Readers
RELEASE DATE: May 1, 2018 

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week's topic is: Top Ten Books on My Spring TBR

*in no particular order
**TBR for me usually means books I already own, so for my picks I'm going from what I already have vs the new releases

10. FOUR by Veronica Roth--I still haven't read this one! I feel like one of the very few people who wasn't upset with the Divergent trilogy, so I plan to give this one a read very, very soon!
9. THE NAMED by Marianne Curley--I plan to re-read the first three installments of The Guardians of Time series so I can read the latest one which just released this month! I LOVED this series when I first read it and remember feeling devastated over its ending so I cannot wait to read the newest installment after a round of catch-up!
8. CARVE THE MARK by Veronica Roth--Veronica is coming to St. Louis next month!! I am super excited! She hasn't been here since Insurgent released! Still kind of shocked she's returning too! Lol! Since she's coming for The Fates Divide so I plan to read the first book of the duology then buy the second one at the signing to be read thereafter!

7. DAUGHTER OF THE PIRATE KING by Tricia Levenseller--Fierce Reads is coming to St. Louis in May! Tricia Levenseller is among the authors coming so I want to get her books read beforehand as well!
6. THE SHADOW QUEEN by C.J. Redwine--STILL need to start this series! I'll be meeting the author at The Origin Event later this year so I want to try to get caught up with this series by then!
5. TORN by Jennifer L. Armentrout--to behind in so many series of one of my most favorite author pains me! I've got to make it a better priority to read her books asap!!

4. THE DEAD LIST by Jennifer L. Armentrout--another one I've been meaning to read! Heck, I meant to read it when it was online for free! That's how long I've had it! LOL!
3. HAVEN by Mary Lindsey--another author at The Origin Event who's book I want to read before attending!
2. TITANS by Victoria Scott--I was on the Street Team for this one but for reasons unknown, my ARC never arrived. I bought the book when it came out but other review books kept getting in the way, then other new releases I was dying for...and here it sits. Since Victoria will be at The Origin Event this one's on my list to read before November as well!

1. ALMOST MIDNIGHT by C.C Hunter--another book I want to read before The Origin Event! One last farewell to the Shadow Falls gang!


  1. Ooooh, I hope you love Daughter of the Pirate King / Siren Queen as much as I did! Those books are amazing and everything I needed when it comes to pirates. Let alone the sass of the female MC, haha.
    Sooo jealous you'll get to meet Levenseller! Enjoy!

  2. A whole new shelf of lovelies for you! Enjoy.

  3. I just knew you'd have an awesome TBR. I have to make time for Haven - it sounds so good.

  4. Nice list! There are so many book from your list that are on my TBR too :) I hope you get to read all of these soon 🙂

    My TTT:

  5. Enjoy all the books on your list. I love the cover of Almost Midnight.

  6. The Named has an awesome cover, and so does Almost Midnight. Both look great!

  7. Nice variety of books. I envy your proximity to author events. Since moving North, author events require a days drive and an overnight stay. So I don't get to one unless I really want to meet the author. Thanks for visiting my blog. Happy reading!

  8. Wow, it sound like you’ll be going to a lot of events. Have fun at them! I hope you enjoy all these books!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  9. Oh how I loved the named. I need to reread that series too. Also read list I hope to read this spring too. Looks good. Also that teaser. Creepy

  10. I just finished Daughter of the Siren Queen this afternoon. I have to say, I throughly enjoyed this series. I would love to see Levenseller do a spin off starring an aged up Roslyn. I just loved that kid.

  11. I actually really enjoyed Four, despite not liking the last two books in the trilogy. Also, same with the JLA books. I'll never catch up to her. She just keeps spitting books out!

  12. Carve the Mark was pretty decent on audio. Happy reading!
