Teaser Tuesday #45

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 teaser. 
My palms grew damp. I wasn't chilled at all anymore; the pressure of their stares warmed me considerably. "Three what?" asked one of the survivors. This struck me as odd; the rumors we'd heard of Three were that they were based at the safe house, yet none of the survivors apart from Jesse seemed to have any clue what I was talking about.

I'm loving this series so much.  If you haven't read it, I totally recommend it.  So what are you reading right now and care to give me a tease?

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

It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Book Journey!

So now that Bout of Books is over, I still have another book that I didn't get to finish last week.  Also I'm still reading the book for this months book club discussion.  So those are mainly the two books I'll be reading this week.  

Book Club 

Legend by Marie Lu 

 What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Republic's wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic's highest military circles. Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country's most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem.

From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths - until the day June's brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect. Caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family's survival, while June seeks to avenge Metias's death. But in a shocking turn of events, the two uncover the truth of what has really brought them together, and the sinister lengths their country will go to keep its secrets.

Book to Finish A Series (the one I didn't finish during Bout of Books)

Three by Kristen Simmons 

  Ember Miller and Chase Jennings are ready to stop running. After weeks spent in hiding as two of the Bureau of Reformation’s most wanted criminals, they have finally arrived at the safe house, where they hope to live a safe and quiet existence.

And all that’s left is smoking ruins.

Devastated by the demolition of their last hope, Ember and Chase follow the only thing left to them—tracks leading away from the wreckage. The only sign that there may have been survivors.

With their high profile, they know they can’t stay out in the open for long. They take shelter in the wilderness and amidst the ruins of abandoned cities as they follow the tracks down the coast, eventually finding refugees from the destroyed safe house. Among them is someone from Chase’s past—someone he never thought he’d see again.

Banding together, they search for a place to hide, aiming for a settlement a few of them have heard about…a settlement that is rumored to house the nebulous organization known as Three. The very group that has provided Ember with a tiny ray of hope ever since she was first forced on the run.

Three is responsible for the huge network of underground safe houses and resistance groups across the country. And they may offer Ember her only chance at telling the world her story.

At fighting back.

So there you have it, what are you reading this week?

So I came so close to my goal of 5 books.  I finished 4, YAY!!! My totals are below, but I want to take a moment to thank all the people that are involved in Bout of Books, this year was amazing and I had a blast. I can't wait for it again in January.  

My Totals for the Week:

Back To School Book Blogger Challenge Day 6

Today we are supposed to talk about things we want to do on our blogs, which is a topic I'm really excited about.  So let's get to it! 

Day 6: Starting Fresh! Back to School means time to get organized and start fresh. What are some steps you will take on your blog to keep things flowing smoothly or to change things up?


  1. The first thing I want to do is get more organized like I used to be. 

  2. More Giveaways! It's something I want to be able to offer  you so I'm going to be looking for ways to do that. 

  3. More reading and reviews.  I feel as if I've dropped the ball this year on the blog and I'm sorry for that. 

  4. More posts.  Again it's something that I failed to do this year. 

  5. More content, other types of posts, not just memes and reviews.  (If you have any suggestions let me know.  I would love to hear from you!)

  6. Book Club: I want it more organized and for more people to be able to join in the fun. 

  7. Vids: I really want to get more Booktube vids posted and going.  I'm working on this one right now. 


So that is my starting list.  If you have any suggestions, like I said above, I more than welcome them.  Thanks for sticking with me this year, seriously, it's been a rough one for me.  So again thanks!!!
