Teaser Tuesday #24 and Top Ten Tuesday #34

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading. Bloggers choose two
sentences out of our current read to peak others' curiosity.

Blood DebtBlood Debt by Nancy Straight



I stared at the phone. I had his number. I had his name.  

Her whole life, it had just been the two of them. Before her mother’s last breath, she gave Camille the information she had craved her entire life: the identity of her father. Daring to contact him, Camille was welcomed by an entire family she never knew existed. But nothing comes without a price, as she discovers when her family claims a legendary heritage tracing back to a centaur touched by Zeus.

As she learns the secrets of her Centaur bloodline, she is drawn into a forbidden love with Drake. Her life may be the blood debt required to pay for her mother’s transgressions. The same person who once held her mother captive, and forced her into decades of hiding, now controls Camille. Her only chance is to seek a piece of her mother’s past that will win her freedom and the life she desperately wants.

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.

Top Ten Books authors we are thankful for:

This is hard.... So of the top of my head.. 

The first four were for my reading pleasure, the last 6 because of the book, the movie, the musical and whatever else became because of the book. 

The Named (The Guardians of Time Trilogy #1)The Princess Bride StardustA Walk to Remember
Alice's Adventures in WonderlandPeter PanThe Phantom of the Opera


  1. Great list! The Princess Bride has been on my TBR list for a long time! :)

  2. I have still to read The Princess Bride but I love the film. It was one I didn't think I would be interested in but ended up loving. Great List

  3. I agree with Nicholas Sparks, Melina Marchetta, and Melissa Marr. Would have to include Jane Austen (of course!), several other English writers, Tahereh Mafi and Lauren Oliver. Also love your teaser, sounds like you got a good one there! Happy Reading!

  4. Stalker much? Haha...great teaser! Wonder what she'll do with it. That's a great list, too. My favorite movie ever is The Princess Bride! I read the book after seeing the movie, but I love it, too. ;)

  5. Ooh very nice tease!! Wonder what she will do and why she needs to call him...
