Teaser Tuesday (70) and Top Ten Tuesday (16)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, just do as 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 any spoilers so as not to ruin the book for others!Make sure to share the title and the author so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR piles!

Everneath by Brodi Ashton
I reached for his hand, then hesitated as I remembered that face. The one with the brown eyes. The boy with the hands that fit mine just right.
--Pg. 6 of an ARC of "Everneath" by Brodi Ashton

I'm really only a chapter into this book and I can already tell I'm going to love it. I'm a bit confused but in a really good way like the start of a new adventure. Can't wait to see how this one turns out!

What's your teaser?
Top Ten Tuesday is a 10's list meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. There is a different question every week and all you have to do is answer their question with your top ten results!
Top Ten Books I'd Recommend to Someone that Doesn't Read YA Dystopian
1) The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins- I'd recommend this novel to any person, old or young, male or female and everyone in between. If you want something amazing in your hands, I always start with this series.

2) Divergent by Veronica Roth- Any fan that loved The Hunger Games is bound to love Divergent. Tris is just as tough and able to care for herself as Katniss but she isn't as cold.

3) Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi- I feel like this is geared more toward your comic book loving gal. Shatter Me is heavy on the romance but has an interesting world to back it up.

4) Matched by Ally Condie- This is definitely a quiet sort of novel. I'd recommend it to those who really like contemporary and are itching to try something new.

5) Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi- Good for both girls and guys, Under the Never Sky is a great novel for the fantasy/sci-fi readers in your life.

6) XVI by Julia Karr- This is something for everyone and I honestly wish they'd require this novel for school. I feel like this is a great book to open up dialog between teens.

7) Wither by Lauren DeStefano- Another quieter dystopian that would be perfect for a contemporary or romance reader.

8) Eve by Anna Carey- Eve is full of action but is is also heavy on the romance. I'd say this would definitely work for a paranormal or romance lover!

9) The Way We Fall by Megan Crewe- Got any zombie loving fans out there? This one is about a virus that spreads (though it isn't a zombie virus) that would be perfect for them or fans of psychological horror.

I know there are quite a few other dystopians out there but I still haven't gotten to read them all. These are the ones I'd recommend out of the books I've read this far.

What's you list about?


  1. Great teaser from Everneath. I think that's one that will really pique others' interest. I found the book to be a good start to a trilogy.

  2. Hey Amber, I need to read Everneath, it has one of the coolest covers I've seen for this year. I just bought XVI too, hope it's awesome. Great teaser =D
