Teaser Tuesday #53 and Top Ten Tuesday #43

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

Why My Love Life Sucks

"Now listen carefully," she said. "Your'e going to die. I only drank two pints. Three Tops. You taste very good, by the way, it was so hard to stop." 

Why My Love Life Sucks by Shevi Arnold

Gilbert Garfinkle is the ultimate tech geek. He has a compulsive need to take apart, figure out, and fix things; and he dreams of one day fixing the world. But a funny thing happens on the way to the future. Gilbert encounters the one thing he'll never be able to figure out: a gorgeous, teenage vampire girl named Amber, who wants to turn Gilbert into her platonic BFF--literally forever! This leaves the ultimate geek pondering life's ultimate question: "Why me?"

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 I Thought I'd Like More Than I Did

1.  Above by Leah Bobet- I just couldn't get into this one. I had a hard time following the story and the way it was written


2. A Need So Beautiful by Suzanne Young- I really thought I would love this one. I think I could have liked the story but the main character drove me insane! She was just so much of a whiner, I couldn't handle it.

A Need So Beautiful (A Need So Beautiful, #1)

3. Skylark by Meagan Spooner- This one I listened to on audio and it was a bit slow for me. I really wanted to like it more. 

Skylark (Skylark, #1)

4.  Divergent by Veronica Roth- I will be yelled at for this one, I'm sure. I really wanted to love this book. Great reviews, but I couldn't love it. I liked it well enough for the story, but the characters fell flat for me. 

Divergent (Divergent, #1)

5.  Hereafter by Tara Hudson. I liked this book, just didn't love it. I am not sure why, it just fell a bit short for me. 

Hereafter (Hereafter, #1)

6. Eve by Anna Carey- Another book I liked just didn't love like I thought I would. A little slow for me... but I have higher hopes for the second book. 

Eve (Eve, #1)

7. Incarnate by Jodi Meadows - I liked it but thought it would be so much more. just a little disappointed. 

Incarnate (Newsoul, #1)

8. Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi. I really enjoyed this book- but didn't love it. Just a bit slow in parts for me... I couldn't keep focus at times. 

Under the Never Sky (Under the Never Sky, #1)

9. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake- It was OK, just not what I had expected at all.

Anna Dressed in Blood (Anna, #1)

10. Blessed by Tonya Hurley - This book held real promise for me but failed. I liked the story, it was just not as smooth as it could have been. I found myself a little confused at times and lost in the pov switches.

The Blessed (The Blessed, #1)

Whats is on your list?


  1. I love your teaser. It sounds like a fun book. My teasers this week are from Battleship by Dorothy Ours and One + One = Blue by MJ Auch, Happy reading!

  4. That teaser is very intriguing. I probably would have passed on this book entirely if it weren't for that.

  5. Funny teaser. "You taste very good" is a strange compliment!
    My Teaser is from BLUEBONNET BRIDE.

  6. Okay, I ventured away from the page and came back and didn't see my initial comment. Can't remember if comments have to be approved here or not. So commenting again!

    Nice tease! Kind of funny too!

    Read a few of these books here and did really like them. Some I haven't read either. But we all have different tastes, so I won't yell at you for not liking Divergent! :)

    Here's my Tuesday post

    Have a GREAT day!

  7. I didn't like Anna Dressed nearly as much as I wanted to, either.
    Here's my TTT

  8. I was disappointed in Divergent and Anna Dressed in Blood, too, so no worries! I really want to read Blessed even though I see mostly negative reviews. It just sounds so bizarre!

  9. Nice teaser choice! And we can't all like the same books, so don't feel bad about any of them! I know I'd have some on my list that lots of people would disagree with, too, haha.

    Here's my teaser from SUDDENLY ROYAL by Nichole Chase.
