Teaser and Top Ten Tuesday (#13) 06/04/13


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) “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!

From page 229 of the Hardcover

With a little less reluctance, Nev recited the limerick a second time.  Each of my packmates raised a hand when his or her name was sounded, except Sabine, who just sniffed, and Fey and Dax, who gave Shay the finger when their turns came.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Books Featuring Travel In Some Way (road trips, airplanes, travelogues, anything where there is traveling in the book!)

I'm BACK, from vacation that is.  I haven't done one of these in a couple of weeks, and I've missed it!  I kind of like this topic, but I have come to realize that I OWN a lot of books about road trips, I just haven't read them yet.  I am being liberal with this topic, and including books that involve the characters going away on vacation in the book.

Everneath (Everneath #1) by
This is what I mean by being liberal.  The characters do travel, I just don't think travel to the underworld is in the spirit of this topic.  Whatever, I love this series.

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by
I know I've talked about this book before, I just love it.  It's all about airplane travel.  It's a love story, but so much more.
There You'll Find Me by
Although it has some religious elements in it, they actually didn't bother me much in this book.  A girl travels to Ireland, and it was surprisingly good. 
Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by
Everything you could possibly want in a road trip book.  So good, and so memorable.

The Summer I Turned Pretty (Summer #1) by
Every time I think of this series, I long for the beach and for summer.  Although it features a love triangle, and the final book kind of annoyed me, I still love the whole series.

The Indigo Notebook (Notebook #1) by
Although it's not the best series I've ever read, it was still very interesting, and very memorable.  The series really lets you get a feel for the culture of each location and made me want to hop a plane to each place. 

Hourglass (Hourglass #1) by
Another example of stretching the theme.  I am totally including this really fun time travel book/series.

Heist Society (Heist Society #1) by
I WISH I could travel to all the awesome places Kat goes in this series.  Plus she gets to go on a private plane.  What a life.

Along for the Ride by
No list would be complete without a Sarah Dessen book.  Although they all take place in summer, this is the one of the few where the MC actually goes away from home. 

Playing Hurt by
Another book where the MC goes on vacation.  This one includes a love story that I was rooting for despite myself.


  1. Great teaser & top ten!

    My TT & TTT :)

  2. I loved the teaser! Makes me miss Nightshade and all the characters. Good old times. =D

  3. Great top ten! I want to read a lot of the books you put on your list. :)

    My TTT

  4. Along for the Ride made my list, too. Love the Heist Society books. That's a great choice--they do get to go to some awesome places in that series. Great list!

  5. Good list. I've seen several recommendations for Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight--I think I'm going to have to read it!

  6. Love this list, still a few I need to read that are ready and waiting on my shelves - especially Amy & Roger's Epic Detour! And can't wait to get into the Heist Society books after loving the Gallagher Girls!

    My TTT!

  7. I love your list! There are several on there that I really want to read!

  8. Great top 10. A few of them I'm defintely going to check out.

  9. That's true, EVERNEATH does have "travel" haha!

  10. OMG!!! You are reading Nightshade. I LOVED that series. I have even read both of the books in the prequel series.

    I used a book in which the characters "traveled" to the underworld, so that is TOTALLY fair game. I picked up a copy of Everneath last month, but still need to read it. I have been slowly making my way through the lengthy list of Sarah Dessen books on my TBR list as well. I love her writing.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I followed you since we seem to read a lot of the same types of books :)

  11. Gosh I am seeing Amy & Roger's Epic Detour EVERYWHERE! How have I not read this book?! *adds to buy list*. I really loved Everneath as well, but it was so freaking sad. Anyway, great list! :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog by the way. You're awesome!

  12. Haha! Nice tease! Been forever since I read that one!

    Here's my Teaser

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  13. Ahhh I need to read so many of these! They all sound so good :).
    My TTT :)

  14. I never even thought of Everneath or Hourglass! I love your list! NEW FOLLOWER!

  15. Thanks for checking out my TTT! I read Jenny Han's Summer series last summer and was surprised by how much I ended up liking them. I always hear amazing things about Heist Society. I think I'll have to check it out soon. Awesome list!

  16. Really like your teaser and some great choices for the Top Ten! You can find mine here.

  17. Along for the Ride was my first Sarah Dessen, and still my favorite.

  18. Thanks for checking out my TTT! The Summer I Turned Pretty and Hourglass are really good choices. I think I've found a few books I need to read, because some of them look really good!

  19. Ooh, Heist Society is an awesome choice :)
