Teaser Tuesday #7

Dear Book Reader,

Hope your Tuesday went well!  It was a rainy day here and I spent a lot of time driving, mostly in massive amounts of traffic.  Here are my teasers for this week from a book I just recently finished and loved!


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2)  sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


 

I didn’t open the box.  To open it would be a form of surrender, and I was not ready to surrender.

~pg. 63, “Zoe Letting Go” by Nora Price

 

Our mistakes don’t have to be failures.

~pg. 196, “Zoe Letting Go” by Nora Price

Check It Out Fridays #11

Dear Book Reader,

Well, I’m getting more books than I have time to read right now and it’s kind of overwhelming!  I’m really having to pick and choose what I read.  I’m also trying to be good about not checking out “first timers”, but failing at that…miserably.  I seriously need a couple of days when nothing needs to be done and I can curl up on the couch or in a chair and just read.  My library’s summer reading program started almost two weeks ago, so I am trying to read more instead of doing other things.  Like finding more books on Goodreads.

First Time Check Out:

  • Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins (2nd copy)
  • Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor
  • Zoe Letting Go by Nora Price
  • Newtown: An American Tragedy by Matthew Lysiak
  • The Here And Now by Ann Brashares
  • Great by Sara Benincasa
  • The Treatment by Suzanne Young
  • Biggest Flirts by Jennifer Echols

Checked Out Again:

  • Liv, Forever by Amy Talkington
  • Alice In Zombieland by Gena Showalter
  • The Sound Of Letting Go by Stasia Ward Kehoe
  • Something Real by Heather Demetrios
  • Prisoner of Night And Fog by Anne Blankman (accidentally returned early)
  • Insanity by Susan Vaught

Renewed Again:

  • The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
  • The Other Countess by Eve Edwards
  • The Vicious Deep by Zoraida Cordova
  • The Savage Blue by Zoraida Cordova
  • The Ward by Jordana Frankel
  • Starry Nights by Daisy Whitney
  • Crewel by Gennifer Albin
  • Altered by Gennifer Albin
  • Her Dark Curiosity by Megan Shepherd

Returned For Keeps:

  • Don’t Look Back by Jennifer L. Armentrout
  • A Death-Struck Year by Makiia Lucier

So. Many. Books.  Not enough hours!  Two got returned this week for library keeps, which is good.  One I had to return because someone had it on hold, but I’m sure I’ll have it checked out again before we know it.  A hundred points for anyone who can figure out what book it was.

Teaser Tuesdays #6

Dear Book Reader,

Another Teaser Tuesday for you and it’s from the same book as last week.  I’m not getting as much time as usual to read lately, so I may have to start spacing out Teaser Tuesdays or use the same book two weeks in a row.


 

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2)  sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


A sense of familiarity crept over me and, with it, a twinge of guilt, but I shook it off in favor of just enjoying the moment.

~pg. 314, “Don’t Look Back” by Jennifer L. Armenmtrout

 

What teasers do you have to share for today?

Month In Review: May

Dear Book Reader,

Hey there!  Can you believe that May is over?  This year seems to be moving by so fast!

Reading wise, I felt like I was in a slump and I didn’t read as much as I’d have liked to.  Here’s the books I did read this month:

  1. Ruins by Dan Wells
  2. The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski
  3. Isabelle by Laurence Yep (Part of the American Girl series)
  4. The One by Kiera Cass
  5. This Is How I Find Her by Sara Polsky
  6. A Death-Struck Year by Makiia Lucier

I guess six isn’t bad, but I started a few books that I haven’t finished yet.

I also posted one review, although I have a few ready to go.

I really feel like I’ve slacking in the review department.  Maybe June will be a  better in that regard!

Read On,

Liz

 

 

Check It Out Fridays #10

Dear Book Reader,

Here we are again, at another Friday.  I can’t believe this is the tenth one of these posts I’ve made.  The list doesn’t seem to be getting smaller, does it?  I’ve been doing so well about not checking out many new books each week, but of course a bunch of books on my TBR list were sitting on the new YA shelf or on the holds shelf this week.  I don’t have much time to read right now either!  Here’s a look at what’s new and renewed for this week!

First Time Check Out:

  • Salvage by Alexandra Duncan
  • The Heiresses by Sara Shepard
  • Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Page

That’s so many books and I hardly have time right now to do any reading!  Why is it that, as soon as my library’s summer reading program starts I have no time to read?

Read On,

Liz

WWW Wednesdays #5

Dear Book Reader,

WWW_Wednesdays4

WWW Wednesdays is hosted over at Should Be Reading!
To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?


1.  I’m still reading “A Death-Struck Year” because I haven’t had much reading time this past week.

2.  I’ve finished a few kids books lately.  Haha!  That’s about it!

3.  Next will probably be “Don’t Look Back” because someone else has a hold on the book.

How would you answer these 3 questions this week?

Liz
