Teaser Tuesday #10

Wow, it’s been such a long time since I’ve done one of these, so it feels good to be back!

 

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books And A Beat.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” 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!


 

Makeovers in books and movies looked like so much fun.  Not so much in real life.

~ pg. 70, Bookishly Ever After by Isabel Bandeira

Years of comments like that made my answer automatic. “I can teach you how to knit and then you can make your own.”

WWW Wednesday #8

Dear Book Reader,

Here’s my WWW Wednesday!


 

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 currently reading “And We Stay” by Jenny Hubbard.  It’s only somewhat keeping my interest right now.

2. I recently finished “Alice In Zombieland” by Gena Showalter.  It was okay, but I’m going to go ahead and read the second book.  I tried to get into “Biggest Flirts” by Jennifer Echols, but 25 pages in and I couldn’t take anymore.  Rarely does a book become a DNF.

3.  I’m not sure what I’ll read next.  I feel like I’ve hit a brick wall with some of the books I’ve been reading lately.  I want something that holds my attention.

 

So, how would you answer these three questions?  Leave your blog link or responses in the comments!

Liz

When a girl loses something, she tries to accept the loss because it’s what is expected of her.

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!

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

Our mistakes don’t have to be failures.

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.

Read On,

Liz
