Teaser Tuesday (25)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! You should too, it's really fun and a great way to find out about other awesome books, and blogs. 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!

This week I am actually reading two books, so I will do teasers from each. I am reading Pretty Amy by Lisa Burstein and Destined (Wings series #4) by Aprilynne Pike.

My Teasers

Cassie and Lila had already fought about who's fault it was the whole ride over and all through booking. They never figured that out, but each did come to the conclusion that the other was a stupid bitch. (pg 31 eARC)

I ran toward the solitude of the dressing room. Of course, the full length mirror inside would have its own disappointments, but I would take dealing with a fat ass over dealing with my mother any day. At least you can do something about a fat ass, in theory. (pg 84 eARC)

My Teaser

"My own hopes aside, I know what it feels like to pine for someone. I know the pain it can bring." (pg 25 ARC)









Those are my teasers this week. I am totally loving both books. I have been slowly getting through Destined, reading a few chapters at a time. I was trying to find another good teaser to use, but I couldn't find one that wouldn't be spoilery that I liked. I have my review for Pretty Amy on Friday and an interview with the author Saturday on my blog, so be sure to stop back for those. I am not doing a Top Ten Tuesday today because I couldn't think of many books for this weeks topic. Leave me a link to your Tuesday post and I will stop by. :)

    1. It's really good so far. It totally reminds me of my teenage years, well with the exception of being arrested and all lol. The characters are very realistic sounding.

    1. Ohh I hope when you get to the Wings series you really like it. I loved the whole idea and originality of it and that was why I started and I was completely hooked. I am sad that Destined is the last book. Pretty Amy is great so far!! I actually have a finished copy pre-ordered from B&N already.

    1. The book has already had me teary eyed once and I am only 1/3 of the way done!! I love this series!

  5. Both teasers are intriguing in different ways. Since I haven't read the Wings series yet, I think Pretty Amy is the one that seemed most interesting to me. My teasers are from Until Next Time by Amy Lignor and The Fireman Who Loved Me by Jennifer Bernard. Happy reading!

    1. I am really enjoying both books. Destined is the 4th and final book in the Wings series so I have had a lot of time to fall in love with the series. Pretty Amy is really great too. They are both such different books.

  11. I loved both of your teasers. Pretty Amy sounds like it would be really funny; Destined sounds sad. But they both sound like good reads!

  14. I LOVE THE PRETTY AMY QUOTES. I want that book so much. O_O Honestly. I love how strong of a voice Amy has in just a few sentences. It's great.

    I also like the quote from Destined because it's very true. :D I've been debating whether or not to read that series.

    1. I really love the Wings series, it's fairies, but it's also original. There is a lot of action in the books too.
