Teaser Tuesday #113 and Top Ten Tuesday #103

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 Lonely by Ainslie Hogarth


A darkly humorous and imaginative story
After she discovers The Terrible Thing, Easter Deetz goes looking for her sister, Julia, but ends up pinned under a giant boulder with her legs crushed into tomato paste. Bored, disappointed, and thoroughly dismembered, Easter slowly bleeds to death in The Woods with only sinister squirrels to keep her company. As The Something Coming draws closer, memories of Easter's family surface like hallucinations: a mumbling father who lives alone in the basement; a terrifying grandmother who sits in her enclosed porch all day; an overly loving mother who plays dead in the bathtub on Sunday nights.
As the story of her life unspools, Easter realizes she's being stalked, making it very difficult for her to bleed to death in peace. Will The Something Coming save her? Or will it do her in entirely?

But maybe none of that really happened. Because you know that there's something not quite right with the way you see things anyway. Even before you started losing blood. 

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 weeks topic is top ten classics. I am horrible have not read many classics. Not even in high school so these are the classics I would like to read someday.. and the ones I have read and loved. 

Top Ten Characters to be stranded on an Island with me:

This changes for me but right now they are: 

1. Katniss from Hunger Games
2. Tarver from These Broken Stars
3. Sam
4. Nick
5.Cas (all above from Altered)
6. Sage from The False Prince
7. Ren
8. Kishan (from Tigers Saga) 
9.Scarlet from Scarlet 
10. Cinder from Cinder

So I picked survivors that could help me survive and I tried to pick the ones with a big personality so the conservations would be interseting. Who Would You Pick?
