“You know what that is? Shaw cracks another against his leg and shakes it, grinning.

And another:

Is this guy for real? Does he think we’re just going to warm up to him after blowing us up and threatening us to get us to go with him…

This week’s teasers comes from Love, Hate & Other Filters by Samira Ahmed which I just started. I’ve heard lots of great things about this upcoming contemporary that takes on Islamophobia and cannot wait to dive deeper in. Check out the sneak peaks below!

Destiny sucks.

Sure, it can be all heart bursting and undeniable and Bollywood dance numbers and meet me at the Empire State Building. Except when someone else wants to decide who I’m going to sleep with for the rest of my life. Then destiny is a bloodsucker, and not the swoony, sparkly vampire kind. 

And another:

It’s bad enough I can’t go to actual prom, but missing MORP, too, is death by paper cuts.

Do these quotes have you intrigued? Are you looking forward to Love, Hate & Other Filters?

Today I’ve got a couple teasers from Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. I’ve read her previous book Everything I Never Told You and absolutely loved it so I have high hopes for this one. Maybe these teasers will intrigue you enough to check out her writing.

Everyone in Shaker Heights was talking about it that summer: how Isabelle, the last of the Richardson children, had finally gone around the bend and burned down the house.

And here’s another:

By then, of course,  Izzy would be long gone, leaving no one to defend her, and people could — and did — say whatever they liked.

Did these quotes pique your interest?

At the moment I’m currently reading Marissa Meyer’s new release, Renegades, and of course super enjoying it. It’s got heroes and villains, found families, and some freaking awesome powers. Check out a couple of teasers below!

“The Anarchists are my family,” she said. “The only family I have left. I won’t be free until you are. I won’t rest until the renegades are punished. For how they treat you. For how the betrayed my family. For what they did to Ace.”

Here’s another:

“Then let’s see if we can’t find what you are looking for.”

Are you planning on reading Renegades? Enjoy Marissa Meyer’s writing?

Today’s teasers are coming from Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith. I’m finally picking up this third installment in the Cormoran Strike series and I’m excited to dive deeper into the crime. Check out these tidbits:

Strike’s twice-broken nose was within an inch of the place where the woman’s leg had been cut off. He was remembering the scarred leg of a child he had never forgotten…how long was it since he had seen her? How old would she be now?

And this one:

The box had been addressed to Robin, which he did not like at all.

Have you read any of the Cormoran Strike novels? Enjoy this different side of J.K. Rowling’s writing?

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.

Have these teasers piqued your interest? Have you read any Star Wars books?

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?
