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 pg. 38 of my ARC*
As Ronan spoke, Gansey's eyes were half-closed, turned toward the night. His thoughtless expression was one of wonder or of pain; with Gansey, they were so often the same thing.

Top Ten Books On My Fall 2013 TBR List
Once again I am defining this to books that come out during the fall equinox September 22nd-December 20th. My track record is pretty good. I just hope it can continue as I deal with a major life change come the beginning of December. Here are the books I'm most looking forward to:
Across a Star-Swept Sea (For Darkness Shows the Stars #2) by Diana Peterfreund
I enjoyed the first book in this series. I look forward to seeing what happens next. I have the ARC just sitting on my shelf calling my name.
Allegiant (Divergent #3) by Veronica Roth
Not only one of my most anticipating books of the Fall, one of my most anticipated books of 2013. I feel like I have been waiting for this book to come out FOREVER.
The Fiery Heart (Bloodlines #4) by Richelle Mead
I have been waiting for this since the beginning of the year when I finished The Indigo Spell. I am so excited we get two Bloodlines books in one year. Ms. Mead is so nice to us readers!
Never Fade (The Darkest Minds #2) by Alexandra Bracken
The first book in this series was actually a bit of a surprise to me. I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did. I can't wait to see what happens in the second book in this series. Another ARC I really need to get to before it comes out.
Teardrop (Teardrop #1) by Lauren Kate
I enjoyed the last series she wrote. I had some issues with it, but overall I found it to be pretty enjoyable. I'm looking forward to seeing if this one can be better. I've had the ARC waiting for me for what seems like forever.
These Broken Stars (Starbound #1) by Amie Kaufman
I've just noticed that this list is very sci-fi heavy, which is not my normal favorite. But I'm including this one because it looks so interesting and is getting so much buzz. I have the ARC, now I just have to read it!
Through the Zombie Glass (White Rabbit Chronicles #2) by Gena Showalter
I had anticipated the first book in this series so much last year, and it totally lived up to my expectations. I can't wait to see what happens next. Plus Cole is back, and I love some Cole.
Just One Year (Just One Day #2) by Gayle Forman
It took me forever to finally read Just One Day, but the moment I finished it, I needed this book in my hands. I can't wait to see what happened to Willem, and where the story goes from there.
Perfect Ruin (The Internment Chronicles #1) by Lauren DeStefano
I totally fell behind on her Chemical Garden series, but maybe I can stay current if I read this one? I was bummed I missed on the ARCs at ALA, but I still plan to read it.
Unbreakable (Legion #1) by Kami Garcia
I can't wait to see what she does on her own. I enjoyed the Beautiful Creatures series, and I want to see if I like this series more. I have the ARC now I have to find the time.
