Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
This week's teaser is from... Cinder by Marissa Meyer!
"Her brow drew together, questioning, but he didn't elaborate. His fingers, light as a breath, brushed her elbow. He craned his head. Cinder couldn't move, barely managing to wet her lips as her eyes slipped shut." (I managed to shut the book and lose the page number before I could add it... SORRY!).
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
Top Ten Books I'd Recommend To Someone Who Doesn't Read YA!
I read about 99% YA and I feel like a lot of people underestimate how exciting and even educational young adult books can be! YA books are great for reluctant readers of all ages, because you can find things that relate to everyone!
1. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - This one is inevitable. The Hunger Games is one of the most amazing books out there. YA or adult, not much can compare!
2. The Maze Runner by James Dashner - This book transcends gender, culture, age, everything! The Maze Runner is a fantastic book and the story exciting and interesting!
3. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer - I've actually given this book to a few people as gifts and everyone has loved it!
4. Hate List by Jennifer Brown - This book tackles a lot of issues, especially bullying. I think it's something that can really attract anyone who's had a hard time with bullying and being picked on.
5. The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis - I'm absolutely obsessed with this series, both the movies and the books, and I think they're not only an amazing read, but a great escape from reality.
6. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi - I recently read Shatter Me, and it's just so amazing!! This is a great read for lovers of sci-fi and superheroes!
7. Deadly Cool by Gemma Halliday - This book is just ridiculously funny and since I'm from the Bay Area I would recommend it to all my friends who are also from around here! I always get a lot more into books when I can recognize the setting.
8. Blood Red Road by Moira Young - I know it was hard for me to get into this book because of the writing style, but I seriously recommend this one to anyone and everyone! It's such an exciting story and Saba is a great main character!
9. Divergent by Veronica Roth - There's just something about a dystopian that appeals to a lot of my friends, and Divergent is one of the best dystopians out there!
10. Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi - I loved this book so so much and I think a lot of my friends would enjoy it because of it's emphasis on technology.
