Teaser Tuesday #68 and Top Ten Tuesday #58

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 alarm is one long, uninterrupted howl. It hasn't ever gone off like this before- not in the middle of the night without a practice drill scheduled. It's only supposed to go off if the last days begin before we think-if Pioneer is somehow wrong about the last date.

Gated by Amy Christine Parker


Do the gates keep the unchosen out or the chosen in?

In Mandrodage Meadows, life seems perfect. The members of this isolated suburban community have thrived under Pioneer, the charismatic leader who saved them from their sad, damaged lives. Lyla Hamilton and her parents are original members of the flock. They moved here following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, looking to escape the evil in the world. Now seventeen, Lyla knows certain facts are not to be questioned:

Pioneer is her leader.

Will is her Intended.

The end of the world is near.

Like Noah before him, Pioneer has been told of the imminent destruction of humanity. He says his chosen must arm themselves to fight off the unchosen people, who will surely seek refuge in the compound's underground fortress--the Silo.

Lyla loves her family and friends, but given the choice, she prefers painting to target practice. And lately she'd rather think about a certain boy outside the compound than plan for married life in the Silo with Will. But with the end of days drawing near, she will have to pick up a gun, take a side, and let everyone know where she stands.

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 10 (8)  Books there needs to be sequels too: 

This was a bit difficult since most of what I read are already series. Most of these books are pretty close ended but I would love to see another book with the same characters.


  1. Great list! The Host is on mine too, it deserves a sequel. Hopefully Stephanie Meyer agrees;)

    TTT @ Eveline's Books

  2. Easy is a great one! How did I forget that? lol And The Host needs to continue. When will she publish book2??? My TTT

  3. Love the teaser! I am starting this hopefully today. :)

  4. Nice tease!!

    Seeing a bit of the Host lately and as someone else mentioned on another blog, goodreads does show a sequel for the Host. Hope you'll get that one soon!
