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!
Why yes, I am still reading the same book as last week.

"What else is here?" Gansey asked? He was using his deeply curious voice and his deeply curious face, the ones he normally reserved for all things Glendower.

Top Ten Best Sequels Ever
This was actually a bit difficult for me. So often the sequel just doesn't live up to the awesomeness of the first book. Here is the best of the bunch:
I really didn't think the second book could live up to the first one, but this one did easily. So far this is a fantastic series, and I can't wait for the next one.
Everbound (Everneath #2) by Brodi Ashton
Once again, I was really worried if this book could live up to the first one. I loved it. Once again I can't wait to see how this series turns out.
Unravel Me (Shatter Me #2) by Tahereh Mafi
On occasion a sequel can be even better than the first book. That's how I felt about this one. I don't know if it was only because of chapter 62, but man, it was good.
Where She Went (If I Stay #2) by Gayle Forman
I'm pretty sure I've mentioned this before, but I was actually angry when I found out there was going to be a sequel to If I Stay. If I Stay is one of my all time favorite books, and in some ways I view it as a perfect book. I didn't know how a sequel would work. But I should have trusted. While it was not as amazing as the first book, it was really, really good.
The Year of Secret Assignments (Ashbury/Brookfield #2) by Jaclyn Moriarty
This was the first in the series that I read, and it was definitely the best in the series. I loved everything about it, and Lydia and Seb remain one of my all time favorite book couples.
Catching Fire (The Hunger Games #2) by Suzanne Collins
I'm not going to lie and say it was as good as the first one, but as far as sequels go, this was pretty darned good. Plus we meet some awesome new characters, so how can that be bad?
Insurgent (Divergent #2) by Veronica Roth
Again, I liked the first book better, but this one tossed in a bunch of awesome twists, so I couldn't be mad at it. Plus it set up the last book perfectly.
The Boy Book: A Study of Habits and Behaviors, Plus Techniques for Taming Them (Ruby Oliver #2) by E. Lockhart
I just love Ruby. This book continued the journey of one of my all time favorite neurotic characters.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Harry Potter #2) by J.K. Rowling
The awesomeness of the first book could have been a fluke, but after reading this book, I knew it was something special. The series was destined to be awesome.
Masquerade (Blue Bloods #2) by Melissa de la Cruz
Making this list reminded me how much I loved the beginning part of this series. Yes it got old after a while, and a little too religious for my tastes, but the first few books were just juicy fun.
