Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that pageBe 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!

Breaking Beautiful by Jennifer Shaw Wolf
What is Trip going to say when he finds out I...? I squash the thought with my hand pressed to my forehead. Trip can't find out anything ever again.
--Pg. 57 of an ARC of "Breaking Beautiful" by Jennifer Shaw Wolf

This book is reminding me a lot of Where It Began by Amy Stampler but is different enough to keep my interesting. Getting the bits and pieces of who Trip was is really making this intersting and I want to keep reading. I have no idea where this one is going but I can't wait to find out!

What is 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 to be Made Into a Movie
So many YA novels are being made into a movie. In fact, most of my favorites are already waiting to get signed and cast. So here's a list of some books I love that have either already been optioned for a movie or haven't had any film attention as of right now.

1) Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender- With the slew of  horror movies out, I think this would fit right in. This book is practically begging to be a movie with it's awesomely creepy scenes and the way it turns stereotypes on it's head.

2) The Mortal Instrument series by Cassandra Clare- I was just a smidge dissapointed with these novels because everyone loved them so much and they were built up for me. I do think they will make killer movies though and I can't wait to see it!

3) A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray- I've been screaming and crying for this one to be made into a movie since I read the first book. Not only would it be gorgeous since it would be set in Victorian England but it's about witches in a boarding school.

4) Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi- This one has been picked up for a movie and I can;t wait! They can really play up the super hero theme in this one though I do worry how they are going to translate Juliette's voice from paper to the big screen.

5) Tempest by Julie Cross- I wasn't a super fan of this novel but I feel like it would translate really well into a movie.

6) The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting- I think these are great action books and would work really well on the big screen. I'd be interested to see how they did the echoes and it would be a great thriller.

7) Fateful by Claudia Gray- Werewolves on the Titanic. Need I say more?

8) Divergent by Veronica Roth- This one has already been auctioned for a film and I can't wait! Holy moly, this is going to be such a good movie. It's like fight club for teens but in a dsytopian backdrop. Can't wait to see what they do with the Dauntless and who is going to play Tris (and Four).

9) Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick- Mostly because I need to see Patch on the big screen.

10) The Demon Trapper's Daughter by Jana Oliver- These books would work really well on film but I think they'd make a really great t.v. series. I'd tune in every week to see Riley and Beck kicking some demon ass and taking names.

What books made your list?


  1. Totally agree on TMI, Shatter Me, Fateful and Divergent. I find The Body Finder too creepy though*shiver* ;) Awesome list! :D

    Drop by my Top 10?

  2. Breaking Beautiful has been on my wishlist for a while - great pick :)

  3. I have been really wanting to get a copy of Breaking Beautiful. Great teaser! :)

    my Teaser Tuesday

    Great list of books on the movie list! I totally agree with Divergent, TMI, Shatter Me and Hush, Hush!

  4. Love your teaser from Breaking Beautiful. I liked it when I read it because I thought it did a good job of talking about an abusive relationship. My teasers are from Struck by Jennifer Bosworth and The Department of Magic by Rod Kierkegaard Jr.. Happy reading!

  5. Love your list! I definitely did not know that Divergent was being auctioned for a movie, that's so exciting!

  6. Great teaser! I love this books made in to a movie too! Here is my teaser: http://inbetweenbooksreviews.blogspot.com/2012/05/teaser-tuesday-timepiece-hourglass.html

  7. Breaking Beautiful is a book I really want to read. Thanks for sharing the teaser!

    My TT: http://bibliophilesthoughtsonbooks.blogspot.com/2012/05/teaser-tuesday-20-xxxholic-volume-19.html

  8. I would LOVE to see A Great and Terrible Beauty on the big screen! The Victorian era AND magic? Two of my favorite things!

  9. Shatter Me made my list too! I ALMOST put the Gemma Doyle books on there but at the last minute, I changed it. But after seeing them on several other lists, I wish I'd have kept them up there because the more I read about them, the more I think they'd make great movies. :)

  10. Ooh, yes for all of your list! I can't wait to see how they portray all the different factions - Dauntless headquarters with the bridges and waterfall and tatts and piercings! And The Demon Trapper's Daughter would make a fantastic TV series.
