Teaser Tuesday #15 and Top Ten #5

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading. Bloggers choose two sentences 

out our current read to peak others' curiosity. 

Spectral by Shannon Duffy

Spectral "And, True?" Mom turned and flipped a pancake onto Jayden's Plate and then cocked and eyebrow at me. "What's your father's name?"
"The Godfather?" I said, rolling my eyes, and then felt bad when I saw Dad's pained expression.
"Kingsley, Actually that's a god one, Dad. I like it." I Said and meant it.


Top Ten is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish that features 

a great bookish top ten every week.

Today's Top ten is Top Ten Characters Who Remind Me Of Myself Or Someone I Know In Real Life

This one is really hard for me since I read young adult and I am 36 years old. I will see what I can come up with for my children. My daughter who is 19 and my son who is 15

For my son! 

1. Artemis Fowl from the Artemis Fowl series- My son is the one who always outsmarts everyone and it tends to get him in lots of trouble.

2. Keith for Silent Song- only because of his music talent. My son is very musically inclined and always has songs going though his head or on his instruments.

3. Wade from Ready Player One- Another one of my son's obsessions is video games

4. Nick from Infinity- He is always sarcastic and seems to always be killing zombies, ok so it's only in video games but its basically the same thing right?

My daughter!

1. Lucy from Graffiti Moon- My daughter is very artistically talented and chasing a boy all over town that she has never met is something crazy she would do.

2. Carmen Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants-- She is very outspoken and can self absorbed like Carmen

3. Daphne from Sass and Serendipity- She is flirty, has a passion for life, and has no care for tomorrow.

4. Madison from the Karma Club- She is just the person who come up with such and idea and carry it out, not thinking about the consequences.

The last two I will do for my dog. Why not!

1. Marley from Marley an me- Well she is nothing but trouble an so so cute.

2. Wolf from Wolf Brother- I swear she calls me tall tailess!


  1. Interesting teaser. I hope you are enjoying the book. I must be on a "dark" kick this week. My teasers are from Dark Companion by Marta Acosta and Darkness All Around by Doug Magee. Happy reading!

  2. Interesting. I'll have to check this out. Here is my TT http://newpaperadventures.blogspot.com/2012/06/teaser-tuesday-june-26.html

  3. I've not read any of those books so not familiar with those characters. :( I did enjoy this top ten though and it looks like you did as well. Great post!
