Teaser Tuesday #70 and Top Ten Tuesday #60

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

Hourglass (Hourglass, #1)Teaser: 

"Slam their heads together until they're unconscious."

He laughed his rich, butter laugh . "Come now. You must be used to boys fighting over you."

Hourglass by Myra McEntire


One hour to rewrite the past . . .

For seventeen-year-old Emerson Cole, life is about seeing what isn't there: swooning Southern Belles; soldiers long forgotten; a haunting jazz trio that vanishes in an instant. Plagued by phantoms since her parents' death, she just wants the apparitions to stop so she can be normal. She's tried everything, but the visions keep coming back.

So when her well-meaning brother brings in a consultant from a secretive organization called the Hourglass, Emerson's willing to try one last cure. But meeting Michael Weaver may not only change her future, it may also change her past.

Who is this dark, mysterious, sympathetic guy, barely older than Emerson herself, who seems to believe every crazy word she says? Why does an electric charge seem to run through the room whenever he's around? And why is he so insistent that he needs her help to prevent a death that never should've happened?

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 things/tools  that make our life as bloggers easier/better

1. Goodreads..... I love goodreads. It is my facebook and I go there more than a handful of times a day. I can't stay off of Gooreads!

2. Netgalley and Edelweiss. I love these sites too. Not only for requesting galleys but also to discover new books. 

3. Other Bloggers. I Love all my fellow bloggers and their sites. I love to read their reviews, their memes, and see what they have discovered lately. 

4. Bloglovin'... this site helps me keep up with my fellow bloggers Go Bloglovin'!

5. Rafflecopter.... Don't think I could keep up with my giveaways if it weren't for Rafflecopter.

6. The Book Depository. I Love to use this site for my giveaways for the simple fact it makes it easy to do international giveaways. 

7. Audiobooks. I only discovered how wondeful these are when I started blogging. For all the time I can't read a book I can listen. It's wondeful. 

8. My Kindle.. Love my kindle. So many E-ARCs out there and it makes it easy to carry them all at once. 

9. Google Calendar.... I can't keep organized without it!

10. Gmail.... another tool I can't keep organized without!
