The Summer of Chasing Mermaids_bookcoverThis week I have a teaser from the book I literally just started reading today, The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler. Even though I’m not that far into it (only around 10-15%), I’m really liking it, especially because of the writing!

“My throat tightened, a feeling like tears rising, but they didn’t spill. They never spilled anymore; I always stopped them. Crying never brought anything back from the dead. It only felt like the ocean trying to drown you from the inside out.”

Have you read this book? What do you think of this teaser? What book are you currently reading? Let me know in the comments below! I might not be able to check it out right away, but I’ll definitely get to it.

That’s it for now, bookworms! Happy Tuesday!

Me Before You_bookcover

This week I have for you a teaser from Me Before You by Jojo Moyes, a touching story I’m really enjoying so far! I’ve actually been kind of neglecting the other book I’m currently reading, now that I think about it! Oh well.

“I hadn’t realized that music could unlock things in you, could transport you to somewhere even the composer hadn’t predicted. It left an imprint in the air around you, as if you carried its remnants with you when you went.”

Yes Please_bookcoverToday I have a teaser from Yes, Please by Amy Poehler (Around 30%):

At thirty I felt like I had about six or seven years of feeling like a real adult before my brain and society started to make me worry about being old. There is the built-in baby stuff, plus the added fascination with the new. But here’s the thing. Getting older is awesome, and not because you don’t care as much about what people think. It’s awesome because you develop secret superpowers.

Yes, Please by Amy Poehler

Magonia_bookcoverToday I have a teaser for you from one of the books I’m currently reading, Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley.

“Celestial alphabets. Writing that gets rewritten as the earth moves. If you look at the sky that way, it’s this massive shifting poem, or maybe a letter, first written by one author, and then, when the earth moves, annotated by another. So I stare and stare until, one day, I can read it.”

I’m not sure what I think of this book yet. I don’t know, I’m finding it kind of hard to get into? Although that’s probably not because of the book, more maybe because I’m just not in the mood to read at the moment. Hopefully I like it by the end of the book!

Happy reading!

Teaser Tuesday #13 (July 07): Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

Hello! Time for another teaser tuesday post! This meme is hosted by A Daily Rhythm.

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) (I’m doing one) “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!)

I’m currently reading a lot of books (5 to be exact) and it would be too much trouble for me to provide a teaser from each, so I’ll just be featuring a teaser from one of the books; Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover.

Ugly Love_bookcover“Do you?” he asks.
“Do I what?”
“Smoke.”
I shake my head. “Nope.”
“Good,” he says. We stare at the candy a little bit longer. He turns to face me, and I glance up at him. “Do you even want any candy, Tate?”
“Nope.”
He laughs. “Then I guess we should get back to the car.”
I agree with him, but neither of us moves.
He reaches down to my hand and touches it so softly it’s as if he’s aware he’s made of lava and I’m not. He grips two of my fingers, not even coming close to holding my entire hand, and give them a soft tug.

Teaser Tuesday #12 (June 30): Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier

It’s Teaser Tuesday time, (a meme hosted by A Daily Rhythm)! To play along, simply open to the page you’re on in the book you’re currently reading and share a ‘teaser’ from it.
Today I have a teaser from Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier. This book is a re-read for me, and I’m really enjoying it. 🙂

Ruby Red_bookcover“How can she expect us to believe a word of what she says anyway?” asked the man by the mantelpiece. I thought his way of acting as if Mum and I weren’t even in the room was very arrogant. “I have the clearest recollections of the lies Grace told to protect Lucy and Paul at that time. It was her fault they got away from us. If it hadn’t been for her, we might have been able to avert the disaster.

-Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier

I’ve been quite busy reading lately, though I’ve been a bit out of it for some reason. Either way, I’m still really enjoying the books I’m currently reading (We Are Watching, The Witches of BlackBrook, and Banish) and I actually almost finished the last two. But for today I have decided to feature a teaser from The Witches of BlackBrook by Tish Thawer.

The Witches of BlackBrook_bookcoverCaris felt two sets of arms encircle her and could no longer hold back her emotions. Tears streaked her cheeks for the lost potential her previous lives has held. So many lost loved ones, missed opportunities to have children, passing of the ones she tried to start a family with… every single time their destiny had gotten in the way.

Intrigued? Well all I can say that this is quite the book, so if this teaser interests you, maybe you’ll be thinking of adding this to your TBR! 😉 Anyway, I’m really enjoying this book, and I would love to hear your thoughts on this teaser below, so please don’t hesitate to comment.

Have a great Tuesday!
