  • 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!)

 "What's wrong?" I whispered. "Something isn't right with my lady. I can see it in her face." Lucy pulled one hand up to her mouth and started chewing away on a nail.












I love this whole book, what am I saying I love this whole series. Sad that it's actually over though. Anyway, hope you enjoyed this little bit of a teaser.  Care to give me a tease into what you're reading? Leave me a comment below or a link to your own Teaser Tuesday. I'd love to find new things to read.

It's Monday...What Are You Reading?



This meme started with J Kaye's Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.  It's a meme where you share what you read last week, what you're currently reading and what you plan on reading that week. 





So it's the first day of Bout of Books 17, so my list this week will showcase what I plan to read first. I've been in a major reading slump again, so I'm hoping this read-a-thon will help with that.


Today I'm Reading 




I still have about 150 pages left of this one, so I'm hoping I can get this one done quick and today! 


The contents of Happily Ever After are as follows:


-The Prince (with the two bonus chapters), Maxon’s novella
-The Guard, Aspen’s novella
-The Queen, Amberly’s novella
-The Favorite, Marlee’s novella
-Three scenes from Celeste’s POV
-Lucy’s scene (bonus scene from The One)
-The bonus epilogue
-Where are they now?
-A map
-Various illustrations


 This Week I Plan To Read:  



I have over 400 pages to read on this one, so I'm hoping to get this one in as well this week. 

 Ruby never asked for the abilities that almost cost her her life. Now she must call upon them on a daily basis, leading dangerous missions to bring down a corrupt government and breaking into the minds of her enemies. Other kids in the Children’s League call Ruby “Leader”, but she knows what she really is: a monster.

When Ruby is entrusted with an explosive secret, she must embark on her most dangerous mission yet: leaving the Children’s League behind. Crucial information about the disease that killed most of America’s children—and turned Ruby and the others who lived into feared and hated outcasts—has survived every attempt to destroy it. But the truth is only saved in one place: a flashdrive in the hands of Liam Stewart, the boy Ruby once believed was her future—and who now wouldn’t recognize her.

As Ruby sets out across a desperate, lawless country to find Liam—and answers about the catastrophe that has ripped both her life and America apart—she is torn between old friends and the promise she made to serve the League. Ruby will do anything to protect the people she loves. But what if winning the war means losing herself?



I have about 200 pages of this one left, so again I'm hoping to get this one finished this week as well. 

 The Eighth Story. Nineteen Years Later.

Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, a new play by Jack Thorne, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. The play will receive its world premiere in London’s West End on July 30, 2016.

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.


Up Next: 

A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray 
Crave by Melissa Darnell 






That's it for me this week, each of these books are rather large, but I'm hoping to finish all of them for the read-a-thon. If I finish them the next two books are listed above as well.

 "Shut it. I'm trying to appraise him."  There was a pause while Belle stared at Elliot. "He's hot," she concluded, turning to Madeline. "Respect." She offered Madeleine a fist bump, which was not Belle's style.








This book has been on my shelf for awhile now, I figured it would be a great Summer read. Though it's another rather long one, but I'm enjoying it so far.  Care to give me a tease into what you're reading? Leave me a comment below or a link to your own Teaser Tuesday. I'd love to find new things to read.

By midnight, I'd already walked the boardwalk and driven a full loop of Colby proper, and still had a few hours before I even wanted to think about going home. Clearly, I needed coffee. So I headed to the Gas/Gro.
