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 Brodi Ashton
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 Jennifer E. Smith
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 Jenny B. Jones
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 Morgan Matson
Everything you could possibly want in a road trip book. So good, and so memorable.
The Summer I Turned Pretty (Summer #1) by Jenny Han
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 Laura Resau
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 Myra McEntire
Another example of stretching the theme. I am totally including this really fun time travel book/series.
Heist Society (Heist Society #1) by Ally Carter
Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen
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 Holly Schindler
Another book where the MC goes on vacation. This one includes a love story that I was rooting for despite myself.
