Teaser and Top Ten Tuesday (#31) (10/22/13)


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. 64

Why had he bothered to ask for her help? Was this some dare like in the movies where the guy hung out with the loser girl only because his buddies said they'd pay up? Or because someone told him she was easy?

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

Top Ten Character Names

I have to be honest.  Most names completely slip from my memory quickly.  I am usually hard pressed to tell you the name of the character from a book a read a week ago.  So a name really has to stand out in a good or bad way for me to remember it.  Here are some of the more memorable good ones.

Looking for Alaska by

 The Catcher in the Rye by

Heist Society (Heist Society #1) by

The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle #1) by

 Pushing the Limits (Pushing the Limits #1) by

This Lullaby by

To Kill a Mockingbird by

The Outsiders by

“Stay gold, Ponyboy, stay gold.”
City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments #1) by

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter #1) by

Picking a name from all the amazing names presented in this series is almost impossible.  Has a series ever provides such a list of awesomely unique names?  For this I'm giving it to Albus Dumbledore, but really throw a dart at a list of Harry Potter characters, and you will find a winner.


  1. Nice teaser.

    Here's mine:

  2. Seeing a lot of Echo today! Sarah Dessen I do recall had an interesting set of names too! Great picks! Nice tease too!

  3. Probably because she was easy ;) Here are Mine! and

  4. Great list!! I included Hale as well. That name is just PERFECT for him. Magnus is a great choice as well. I'm not sure why I didn't consider that one.

    Here is my TTT:

  5. I've seen How To Kill A Mockingbird on this list a couple of times today.

  6. The problem with that way of thinking is that either it's true and a pathetic situation or it's false and ungenerous to have even considered it.

    Great teaser. Please check out my teaser.

  7. Ooh. Echo Emerson *is* a cool name. I actually used Emerson on mine, but as a girl's first name! (From the Hourglass series.) Thanks for sharing! :D

  8. Sounds like the guy in your Teaser is confused. I like that he compared his situation to a movie plot. Good Teaser.
    My Teaser is from PEACE BY PEACE.

  9. Great list. l love Echo.
