Leia never told you more than you needed to know. That was fro the protection of others as much as her own.

And here’s another:

“Will we make it?” she asked.

Look another book I discovered on Twitter! This week’s teasers come from Rosemarked by Livia Blackburne which I’ve seen pop up in recent conversations. I’m always here for slow burn and I’m excited to dive further into the story. Check out a couple of teasers to see if you would be interested in this upcoming release:

The sight of her strengthens my resolve, and I dismiss my thoughts of playing it safe.

And here’s another:

If I’ve added a spoonful too much water or built my fire too high, missorted the roots or chewed my mouthfuls to the wrong degree, she will have seen it.

Is Rosemarked on your radar? Interested by the teasers?

This week’s teaser comes from Shirley Jackson’s The Bird’s Nest. Its my first book by her and I’m not quite sure what to make of it yet. Check out these quotes to see for yourself:

My own practice has dwindled because of most of my patients are dead…

And another:

I make no excuses or apologies for my medical views, although perhaps my literary style will leave something to be desired…

Have you read any of Shirley Jackson’s books? Interested in The Bird’s Nest?

Yet another book club Teaser Tuesday coming at you today. This month we’re reading Angle of Repose by Wallace Stegner, a Pulitzer Prize winner in Fiction from 1972. It’s an interesting look at frontier living and I thought I’d share a couple small passages.

Snow blew down the Royal Gorge in a horizontal blur. With Ollie’s sleeping head in her lap and a down comforter around them both, she tried now and then to get a look at that celebrated scenic wonder, but the gorge was only snow-streaked rock indistinguishable from any other rock, all its height and grandeur and pictorial organization obliterated in storm.

And another:

As if taking an oath, she assured herself that from now on she would have him, and so would Ollie. They would not imagine him any more.

So have you heard of Angle of Repose? Interested in frontier living?

The Gauntlet by Karuna Riazi has been on my TBR for a while and I’m certainly intrigued by this middle grade adventure. It’s got Jumanji vibes and dangerous games, so basically it sounds awesome! Check out this teaser:

“I can feel the box…move.”

And here’s another:

“See?” Farah exclaimed, a rush of relief sparking its way down to her toes. She wasn’t imagining it. There was definitely something weird going on.

Have you read The Gauntlet? Interested in maze/puzzle stories?

Finally getting to a book after it sits on your TBR for a long while is such a relief. That’s the case with this week’s Teaser Tuesday pick Clariel by Garth Nix. I love the Old Kingdom series and kept putting this one off as it’s a sort of prequel. Thankfully a readathon came along giving me an excuse to knock this off the list. Check out this little teaser:

“I can’t remember the marks for an arrow ward,” said Clariel. “But I can duck.”

And here’s another from the same page:

“We will either bind it quickly, or if not, you will soon see the way matters go.”

Have you read Garth Nix’s Old Kingdom series? Interested in picking them up?

 It’s book club time of the month again and I’ve got a teaser for our current read, The Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henriquez. It’s a story of coming to America filled with love, family, and the difficulties so many face. Check out a little taste below.

Back then, all we wanted was the simplest things: to eat good food, to sleep at night, to smile, to laugh, to be well. We felt it was our right, as much as it was anyone’s, to have those things.

Did this pique your interest? Have you read The Book of Unknown Americans?
