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.

So I know I finished this one already, but I'm thinking ahead. That whatever book I'm reading or about to start I won't actually have time to record a teaser like I usually do on Mondays, because as I said, I'm meeting Stephanie Garber on Monday night! Lol. So this week's teaser is from my last read!

"'Oh, good. A mystery. But I have to warn you, I've seen every episode of Scooby Doo. Even the ones where Scoob was a puppy.'" p 269 

TITLE: Blind Tiger
AUTHOR: Rachel Vincent
GENRE: Urban Fantasy
RELEASE DATE: March 7, 2017

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: Page to Screen Freebie: Top Ten Books that Need to Be Made into Film!

*in no particular order

10. DEAD WITCH WALKING by Kim Harrison--once upon a time this was going to be a TV show, but then things happened and it didn't happen. I think it would make an awesome TV show!!
9. SWERVE by Vicki Pettersson--this would make once awesome movie! Oh my god it would likely terrify me, but I loved this book! It was super creepy and surreal and to see it as a movie would be incredible!
8. ILLUMINAE by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff--I can't decide whether this would be a good TV show or movie. Either I guess at this point! Maybe movie just because it would be able to encompass more...or maybe that's true of the opposite!

7. CARAVAL by Stephanie Garber--definitely movie worthy!!
6. OBSIDIAN by Jennifer L. Armentrout--I think this one could work great as either a TV show or movie!
5. CAMPFIRE by Shawn Sarles--definitely make a good scary movie! Perhaps make the scarier stuff happen sooner and longer!

4. SOME GIRLS BITE by Chloe Neill--another I can't decide if it would be better as a TV show or movie! But I know I'll be cracking up either way!
3. FIRST GRAVE ON THE RIGHT by Darynda Jones--either way again! Charley is a laugh riot. Maybe leaning more towards TV show than movie.
2. WELCOME TO THE DARK HOUSE by Laurie Faria Stolarz--definitely movie worthy! But let's finish the franchise this time around!

1. DREAMFALL by Amy Plum--this would make a great horror movie too!



  1. Oooh, Illuminae is a good choice! I'd actually be interested to see how they adapt it to film, although I feel like it might lose a little in the adaptation. I'm really partial to the physical book, because reading it with the formatting just felt like its own unique experience, which was novel and fun. I haven't read the others yet, but everyone seems to like Caraval, and it's on my TBR. :) Great choices.

    Here's my TTT post.

  2. Caravel would make such a great film.

    My TTT.

  3. I agree that Caraval and Welcome to the Dark House would be a great films!

  4. LOL on the teaser! I chose Obsidian and Caraval, too!

  5. Caraval would be visually stunning or it should be if it was adapted. I really hope they adapt the Illuminae Files. It would be fantastic.

  6. Illuminae would be very interesting on film and I wonder how they would adapt the email transcripts! As for Caraval, that would definitely make a spectacular movie! Great picks!

  7. Love that Blind Tiger quote!

  8. YES to Caraval and Welcome to the Dark House! Those would be amazing!

  9. Dead Witch Walking would have made a great show...
