Welcome to Teaser Tuesday, hosted by Ambrosia @ The Purple Booker, the weekly Meme that wants you to add books to your TBR, or just share what you are currently reading. It is very easy to play along:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers! Everyone loves Teaser Tuesday.
A is for Alibi by Sue Grafton:
“She was a little less remote than she had been but I still had the feeling that she was one step removed from what was happening. ‘He was having an affair with someone.‘”Page 21
“Again, that barely suppressed male animal seemed to peer out through his eyes. ‘Good luck,’ he said. ‘I suspect you won’t turn up much.'”Page 32
Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl.
Today’s topic is: Winter 2018 TBR
The year is almost over and I have exactly 13 days before 2019 opens its doors. See the ten books I hope I can squeeze in between then, and now.
*Update: Winter lasts between December and March (thank you @ Jenniely for pointing that out) so I have 3 months to read these books, not 13 days. (I’ll probably not finish them all by then anyway).
- Watching You by Lisa Jewell
Watching You comes out on the 26th. I’ll be lucky if I manage to snag it before the 31st.
- The Girl is Murder by Kathryn Miller Haines
I love the summary and I’m getting lots of Nancy Drew vibes. I really need to read this!
- Model Spy by Shannon Greenland
A hacker who gets caught and chooses to be an undercover agent instead of serve time in juvenile detention. Interesting and hopefully super fun!
- Silent in the Grave by Deanna Raybourn
This is a London (historical) murder mystery with a female hero. My two favorite subjects with my favorite type of hero: a definite dream come true.
- I’ll Be Seeing You by Mary Higgins Clark
I’ve heard A LOT about how awesome Ms. Clark’s mysteries are. So, I plan on reading this one before the year’s end.
- Corrupted by Lisa Scottoline
I’ve read the first two and I loved the characters so much. Series are supposed to get worse or better and I’m not sure yet which one it is. Number three, here I come!
- Alibi Junior High by Greg Logsted
This isn’t my typical cup of tea but I’ve been searching for something different. A thirteen year old son of a CIA agent trying to survive junior high is definitely different than my usual book, but it sounds like its going to be a lot of fun.
- Long Road to Mercy by David Baldacci
This is a 2018 release and is written by the great Baldacci. Atlee Pine is the heroine of a new thriller series and works for the FBI. I can’t wait to read this one.
- Need to Know by Karen Cleveland
Ms. Cleveland was a CIA analyst and she wrote a book about a CIA analyst. Who better to write about what life in the CIA is actually like?
- The Friend by Teresa Driscoll
This novel has mixed reviews on Goodreads and I’m not sure if it is worth my time. But, I’ve decided to give it a go – maybe I’ll be one of the ones who enjoyed it.
