Teaser Tuesday [17]: Fever and Top Ten Tuesday [4]

 Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • 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!

This week's teaser is from... Fever by Lauren DeStefano
"I was born into a world that was already dying; I belong to it. I will take it over holographic oceans and spinning diagrams of beautiful houses. Because even if the lie is beautiful, the truth is what you face in the end." (278)
*This quote was taken from an ARC copy. Any quotations should be compared to the finished copy*
Oh. My. God. This book is seriously amazing! Lauren DeStefano's writing is FANTASTIC!! And the story is just so heartbreaking! I can't wait for the next one!!
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Top Ten Books I Hope Santa Brings

1. Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare - I have been waiting FOREVER for this book, and I definitely need to read it!! Especially after I've heard so many good things!!
2. Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey - I've been wanting this one for awhile, it was my WoW post a while back, and the cover is just awesome!
3. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi - I'm going to a signing in January and Tahereh will be there so I definitely need to get Shatter Me and read it before then!!
4. The Death Cure by James Dashner - OMG!! I finished Scorch Trials a few weeks ago and I am DYING to know how it all ends!!

6. Legend by Marie Lu - Dystopian!!! I've heard this one is awesome so I'm definitely excited to get it! It's dystopian, so it has to be good right?
7. The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff - Honestly I can't really remember what this one is about, but the cover is crazy awesome!

  11. Fantastic teaser! Those lines were beautiful! I still need to read Wither. Haven't gotten around to it yet...

  12. Love your top 10! I just heard about the Faerie Ring the other day and it sounds awesome although I've never really read a faerie book before. I'm looking for Santa to bring me Blood Red Road by Moria Young. Love that book ^_^

  13. I'm just reading Wither now; it's so good so far! I'm also pretty excited that I won't have as long a wait for Fever as some others have had. Thanks for the great teaser!

  14. Sadly I'm slacking and haven't read any of those books even though I'm dying to. You should read Daimon by Jennifer Armentrout I'm reading it now its a really good short story that takes place before Half Blood. Goes more into Alex's life. I'm hoping to get Obsidian for Christmas because there is a seriously hot alien on the cover lol. Clockwork Prince I'm so dying to get but I think I'm gonna splurge on a signed edition and I really want Will's letter.

  15. You've listed some of the books I'd want too!! Ahhh...I'm going to email you in a bit. But I hope Santa brings them to you for Christmas!!

    Happy Holidays!!
