I’m a bit late reading Tell Nobody since the publish date is tomorrow (oops!), but I’m glad to be finally reading another Lottie Parker book. I’ve really enjoyed the first four books of this series, and I’m having high hopes this fifth book will be another winner.

My teaser (2%):

“Street lights directed her along the desolate lane that ran behind the terrace. Her jeans were saturated, and she wasn’t sure if it was blood or water.”

I’m finally reading my first Ruth Ware book! And what better way to start than with her debut… It’s still early days with In A Dark, Dark Wood, but so far it is making a good enough impression. I will be looking forward to continue reading this one later today.

My teaser (1%):

“I am running through moonlit woods, with branches tearing at my clotches and my feet catching in the snow-bowed bracken.

Brambles slash at my hands. My breath tears in my throat. It hurts. Everything hurts.”

I’m so excited to be finally reading Lies Between Us by fellow book blogger Ronnie Turner! I’ve been looking forward to pick it up, and although it is still early days, I’m looking forward to be spending more time with this story later today.

My teaser (1%):

“Tears trickle down your cheeks. My hand itches to wipe them away but I keep myself in check and instead pat you on the back again. That’s the limit, the boundary.”

TEASER TUESDAYS is a weekly book meme hosted at The Purple Booker. To participate, just open the book you are currently reading to a random page, and choose two ‘teaser’ sentences from somewhere on that page. (no spoilers!)

I’m currently reading the first book of a new detective series that is coming out later this month. I’m always excited to see something new by Carol Wyer popping up, so of course I couldn’t resist The Birthday either. And so far I’m finding myself flying through it!

My teaser (5%):

“Tony stood up again, shook his head and ran his hand through his hair before patting Bob on the back. He lifted his mobile to his ear. The men retreated from the spot and stood like sentinels, heads bowed, unwilling to look at what they’d uncovered.”

Teaser Tuesdays #186 – August 28th: The Girl Who Saved The King Of Sweden

TEASER TUESDAYS is a weekly book meme hosted at The Purple Booker. To participate, just open the book you are currently reading to a random page, and choose two ‘teaser’ sentences from somewhere on that page. (no spoilers!)

I’m currently reading book number nine of my August TBR and probably the last title before the N.E.W.T. readathon madness begins… I’ve been meaning to read The Girl Who Saved The King Of Sweden for a long time, mostly because I’m a huge fan of The Hunderd-Year-Old Man. I know his books and humor are not for everyone, but there is just something about his writing that hits the mark for me (although I admit not always). Fingers crossed this one will be another winner!

My teaser (1%):

“The twenty-three-year old stepped into the latrine office and couldn’t help immediately complaining about the smell. There, on the other side of the desk, sat the latrine manager, the one who was about to be dismissed. And next to him was a little girl who, to the assistant’s surprise, opened her mouth and replied that this was indeed an unfortunate quality of shit – it smelled.”

Teaser Tuesdays #185 – August 21st: The Confession

TEASER TUESDAYS is a weekly book meme hosted at The Purple Booker. To participate, just open the book you are currently reading to a random page, and choose two ‘teaser’ sentences from somewhere on that page. (no spoilers!)

I’ve been wanting to pick up this ARC for a while… It’s the first time I’m reading one of her thrillers, but if the rest of The Confession is as good as the part I’ve read, I’m sure it won’t be my last. I really like her writing style so far! And I like the multiple POV chapters and discovering the why and not the who this time.

My teaser (4%):

“But here’s the thing about fairytales.

Sometimes they’re darker than you can ever imagine.”

Teaser Tuesdays #184 – August 14th: Rivers Of London

TEASER TUESDAYS is a weekly book meme hosted at The Purple Booker. To participate, just open the book you are currently reading to a random page, and choose two ‘teaser’ sentences from somewhere on that page. (no spoilers!)

One of the books I’m currently reading is Rivers Of London by Ben Aaronovitch. I’m so excited to be finally starting this series! I’ve been wanting to do so for ages, and both the fact I got my hands on paperback copies of the first two books (I already had them on my kindle, but I just couldn’t resist those gorgeous covers) and the fact I need them for the Magical Readathon made me give in finally. It’s still early days, but so far it looks promising!

My teaser (page 7):

“I could see right through him to the white tent the forensic team had set up to protect the area around the body.

Right, I thought, just because you’ve gone mad doesn’t mean you should stop acting like a policeman.”
