Teaser and Top Ten Tuesday (#29) (10/08/13)


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 pg. 225

I'll admit that I noticed him right away--he was sitting on an expensive-looking lounge chair, and I thought he was cute.  Okay, fine, I thought he was gorgeous.

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

Top Ten Best/Worst Series Enders

Another confession.  I'm pretty terrible about finishing series.  I will read the first one or two, and never get around to the last. I am sure there are others I would put on this list if I ever manage o finish that final book.

The Best:

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter #7) by

Mockingjay (The Hunger Games #3) by

Spell Bound (Hex Hall #3) by

Where She Went (If I Stay #2) by

Forever (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #3) by

Real Live Boyfriends: Yes. Boyfriends, Plural. If My Life Weren't Complicated, I Wouldn't Be Ruby Oliver (Ruby Oliver #4) by

Forever Princess (The Princess Diaries #10) by

I thought the 9th book in the series was the best of the bunch, but this one was great too.  The perfect ending fit for a fairytale.


The Worst:

Breaking Dawn (Twilight #4) by

Requiem (Delirium #3) by

One of my fist reviews for this blog was about how much I hated this book.  The bottom line is there is a way to have an open ending and a way not to.  This is perfect example of how NOT to do an open ending.  I really, really hated this book.

The Ghosts of Ashbury High (Ashbury/Brookfield #4) by

I was so disappointed in the end of the series.  I though this book was poorly paced and just weird and boring.  Plus Lydia and Seb!  Why?


  1. Love the cover on your teaser book! I read If I Stay, but couldn't get into Where She went. Glad to here you enjoyed it.
    Here's my teaser....

  2. LOL. I love the humor in the teaser.

    I’m reading 2 books this week. So here are mine:

  3. Yay, I'm glad someone else has the Princess Diaries on their list. I also have HP down as a best ending and I'm not sure about the Hunger Games series. I find it so hard to come to one conclusion when I'm caught between liking parts of it and wanting to know more about others.

  4. Huh - I had Spellbound on my list of the worst. Mostly because of how the love triangle was resolved. I really, REALLY hated it. :(

  5. You have several series that are still on my TBR list. I need to read the last book in the HP series and I still have to start the Hex Hall and Mercy Falls series.

    I included Mockingjay and Requiem on my list as well.

  6. I'm so nervous to read Requiem after seeing it on so many worst lists this week! Great picks!

  7. I've read several YA books recently and thoroughly enjoyed them. This sounds like a good one too.
    My Teaser is from AFTER ALL THESE YEARS.

  8. Hey, I'll go from cute to gorgeous for a hero any day.

    Great teaser. Please check out my teaser.

  9. Nice picks! Really seeing a lot of mixed placings of Mockingjay and a lot of people aren't seeming to like Lauren Oliver's ending. My sister still needs to read that one, wondering what she will think since she's not avid as a reader as we all are!

    Seeing mixed feelings over Forever, I think I liked it myself, it's been so long since I read it though! Seeing lots of Harry love! Loved it too! Forgot about Spell Bound myself. I was a bit heartbroken by it myself, but I still enjoyed it!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  10. Deathly Hallows was amazing! I'm currently reading Forever ;)
    -Scott Reads It!

  11. Mockingjay was a pretty good ending, I did had some issues with Katniss, but after reading that epilogue, I was a goner! I haven't finished Forever because of the open ending (not a fan of that), but you're comment is really making me curious to figure out how the series ended. great list, Lisa! Thanks for stopping by :)

  12. There are a bunch of series in your "best" section that I'm looking forward to reading - even more now (Hex Hall, If I Stay, the Maggie Stiefvaters...). Great list!

  13. I've seen Breaking Dawn in a few other people's worst for the TTT, but I hadn't thought of it myself! Though it's been years since I read them and I was 14 at the time.. I really loved it though! Forever is a really great addition to the best category, I don't know why I didn't think of it myself!
