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 started reading this title on a whim… I’ve been meaning to read Hunted by Meagan Spooner for a while now, and somehow this Beauty And The Beast retelling sounded just like I needed. I’m not that far into the story yet, but I’m looking forward to read more of the story soon.

My teaser (6%):

“Suddenly, over the howl of the rising storm, a heavy pounding against the front door broke through the sounds of chatter and laughter. The sisters exchanged glances as their father leaned to the side to look around the edge of his chair toward the hall.”

Teaser Tuesdays #179 – July 10th: Hell To Pay

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 become a huge fan of Detective Kay Hunter in the short time I’ve gotten to know her, and being able to pick up another book of the series is always a treat. I’m already starting with book number four, although I’m still behind because number six was already published a few days ago! It feels good to be slowly catching up though… Hell To Pay sounds really promising and from what I’ve read so far it looks like I’ll be in for another excellent story. I’ll be looking forward to spend more time with Kay Hunter later today!

My teaser (19%):

“A mixture of excitement and trepidation swept through her. Professionally, she wanted justice for everything the man had done to her and others, but his comment as they’d entered the room had unnerved her.”

Teaser Tuesdays #178 – July 3rd: Prodigy

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 my goals this year is to finally finish more of those series I once started, but never continued. I actually read Legend back in 2015, and even though I liked the first book, I somehow never picked up the sequels. So when I saw this title popping up the other day, I decided to pick it up on a whim and hopefully cross off another series after reading book number three some time soon as well. It was quite easy jumping back into this world and I’m having a good time reading this story so far!

My teaser (9%):

“She turns away and disappears back down the hall before I can reply. I don’t think she’s forgiven me entirely for breaking her arm.”

Teaser Tuesdays #177 – June 26th: When The Moon Was Ours

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 finally picking up my latest TBR jar pick! Just in time for Pride Month as well… I’ve been seriously lacking in picking up books with queer characters this month, shame on me! When The Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore has always intrigued me, although I’ll be keeping my fingers and toes crossed I will react well to the supposedly magical realism elements. I’m not that far into it yet, but so far I love the writing style!

My teaser (1%):

“Without her, he had been nameless. He had not been Samir or Sam. He had been no one.”

Teaser Tuesdays #176 – June 19th: The Upside Of Unrequited

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 meaning to pick up The Upside Of Unrequited ever since it was first published last year, and it’s time to finally do something about that. This month being Pride month is another excellent reason for picking this one up, and hopefully I’ll be able to read one or two other titles before the end of the month as well. But first, it’s time to dive into this one.

My teaser (15%):

“The silence is a little painful. It’s funny, because you always think the hard part is meeting someone the first time. It’s not. It’s the second time, because you’ve already used up all the obvious topics of conversation.”

Teaser Tuesdays #175 – June 12th: Bring Me Back

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!)

There has been a lot of hype around this one, so I’ve been hesitant to pick it up myself… But with the publish date around the corner, it was time for me to see how I will react to this story. There is no doubt I’m curious about Bring Me Back, and I’ve been trying to go in with low expectations, so we’ll see how things go I guess. Fingers crossed!

My teaser (2%):

“My heart misses a beat. I lean my free hand on the cold metal back of the bench, trying to process what he’s just told me.”

Teaser Tuesdays #174 – June 5th: The Date @bookouture @Fab_fiction

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 actually already finished this one on Sunday, but I just HAD to share a teaser anyway. Louise Jensen is one of my favorite psychological thriller authors and she has done her thing once again by writing her newest story The Date. Holy cow, what a read! Not only is the writing sublime, but the suspense is spot on and I’m always a sucker for the whole amnesia element. Especially in this case, where the main character is unable to recognize faces after trauma… Fascinating, highly addictive and utterly absorbing! I literally dropped everything to read this one.

My teaser (17%):

“Gingerly, I stand, cup my eyes and press my face against the glass.

There’s nobody there.

But that doesn’t mean he has gone.”
