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!

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 EndersAnother 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 J.K. Rowling
Yes the epilogue kind of sucked, but as an overall book, I kind of loved it. Yes it was sad, and yes I cried my eyes out in parts, but I really miss this series.
Mockingjay (The Hunger Games #3) by Suzanne Collins
I stayed away from all information on the end of this series, and I'm glad I did. I was able to form my own opinion without being influenced by anyone else. I really thought it was a great and satisfying ending to the series.
Spell Bound (Hex Hall #3) by Rachel Hawkins
This almost didn't make the list. I just really enjoyed how everything ended, and it helped knowing that we weren't having to say goodbye to the characters forever. Until Hawkins announced that the new series was DOA. Then I wasn't so happy.
Where She Went (If I Stay #2) by Gayle Forman
Is including this as a series cheating? I'm going with no. I was so happy to read this and knowing what happens with Adam and Mia. I love this book, and it was a perfect ending. I never felt the need for another.
Forever (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #3) by Maggie Stiefvater
This is how you have an open ending done well. It was a beautiful end to a beautiful series.
Real Live Boyfriends: Yes. Boyfriends, Plural. If My Life Weren't Complicated, I Wouldn't Be Ruby Oliver (Ruby Oliver #4) by E. Lockhart
Ruby Oliver in all her neurotic glory went out with a bang. At the end of the day, I really felt she would be o.k. What more could you ask for?
Forever Princess (The Princess Diaries #10) by Meg Cabot
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 Stephenie Meyer
Gosh I hated this book. I wanted to toss it across the room on multiple occasions. It was just so, so stupid. I hated it so much I still can't bring myself to watch the movies. This was one of those books where I wanted my time back after I finished it. I get mad when I think about this book.
Requiem (Delirium #3) by Lauren Oliver
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 Jaclyn Moriarty
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?
