Ever since I read and loved The Cruel Prince I knew I’d need to delve into Holly Black’s earlier fae works. Thankfully I have The Darkest Part of the Forest on hand now to remedy this desire so check out this teaser!

Down a path worn into the woods, past a stream and a hollowed-out log full of pill bugs and termites, was a glass coffin. It rested right on the ground, and in it slept a boy with horns on his head and ears as pointed as knives. 

Have you read The Darkest Part of the Forest? A fan of Holly Black’s books?

“We haven’t really been alone in a while,” I say.
“That’s not my fault.”
“It’s not my fault either. Look, I don’t want to fight.”

I watch the red light, the people at the crosswalk. We’re a few blocks away from school. I recognize a couple of girls from my team by their black-and-red uniforms. A woman dressed in all black trails behind them.

“Oh, I see,” he said, seeing the red stains on the pillow.

He couldn’t remember where he was. In his dream, he had been home, resting near the apple orchard; the trees were a riot of white blooms.

This week’s teasers come from A Rogue By Any Other Name by Sarah MacLean. I jumped on reading this book after Roshani Chokshi hyped it for it’s Hades/Persephone vibes and she definitely didn’t lead me astray. Check out these teasers and don’t worry I left out the steamy bits for your own discovery.

Dear P — 
That sounds suspiciously like a sermon from Vicar Compton. You’ve been paying attention in church. I’m disappointed.

And here’s another:

“Penelope! What have you done?”

It’s another Teaser Tuesday and this week I’ve got quotes from Maurene Goo’s The Way You Make Me Feel. It’s a cool contemporary romance with a kick butt food truck plot line. So far I’m loving it so check out these teasers below!

The smell of frying fish hit me the second I stepped into my apartment. Although I had eaten an entire bag of Doritos (topped off with Red Vines) mere minutes ago, my stomach grumbled with hunger.

Here’s one more:

“Can I just be the pretty face of the campaign?”

Have you read The Way You Make Me Feel? Did these quotes catch your interest?

I’m finally picking up Tahereh Mafi’s Whichwood for Ramadan Readathon and today I’ve got a couple teasers for all of you. As I truly enjoyed Furthermore I have high hopes that this one will be just as good or even better! Here’s the first:

The thing was, no persons ever came here, and heaven help them if they did; stumbling upon a shed of swollen, rotting corpses had never done any person any good.

And another:

Laylee wasn’t a child oft bothered by the fuss and furor of fear; no, she dealt with death every day, and so the unknowns that startled most had little effect on a person who could talk to ghosts.

Well these surely sound promising!

Have you read Whichwood? Interested in picking it up now?

This week’s teaser comes from the book club pick this month, News of the World by Paulette Jiles. From what I can tell it’s a historical fiction/western set in Texas so we’ll see how this goes. Check out these teasers:

He turned his head to search the crowd of faces turned up to him. I can hear you muttering, he said. Stop it. I hate muttering.

And another:

The Captain had a clean-shaven face with runic angles, his hair was perfectly white, and he was still six feet tall. His hair shone in the single hot ray of the bull’s-eye lantern.

Have any of you read News of the World?
