Teaser Tuesday #39 and Top Ten Tuesday #29

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

The Cadet of TildorThe Cadet of Tildor by Alex Lidell



"Extra time with him has given you nothing but blisters and moves you've no intention of using. Plus, i don't enjoy the same sights you do."

Tamora Pierce meets George R. R. Martin in this smart, political, medieval fantasy-thriller.

There is a new king on the throne of Tildor. Currents of political unrest sweep the country as two warring crime families seek power, angling to exploit the young Crown's inexperience. At the Academy of Tildor, the training ground for elite soldiers, Cadet Renee de Winter struggles to keep up with her male peers. But when her mentor, a notorious commander recalled from active duty to teach at the Academy, is kidnapped to fight in illegal gladiator games, Renee and her best friend Alec find themselves thrust into a world rife with crime, sorting through a maze of political intrigue, and struggling to resolve what they want, what is legal, and what is right.

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.

This week's top ten is top ten reading goals for 2013. I am not sure I can come up with 10, but I will list what I have. 

My Top  2013 reading goals:

1. Read more off my shelves
2. Finish some series I have had on  my TBR for a long long time. 
3. Review more books I read, right after I read them. 
4. Read more blogs. 

And here are two series I would love to finish up!

Boys that Bite (Blood Coven Vampire, #1)

Stray (Shifters, #1)
