Top Ten Tuesday & Teaser Tuesday 10/23/12

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke & The Bookish 
Top Ten Books to get you into the Halloween Spirit!: 

 1) The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan 

 2) The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
Not necessarily scary, but it has psychics and murder in it.

3) Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark Series
by Alvin Schwartz, Stephen Gammell
-MG-
The pictures in these books alone are scary enough to keep you up all night or leave the light on when you went to bed!

4) The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa 

5) The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin 

-TO Read-

6) Ten by Gretchen McNeil

7) Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

8) The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff

9) Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard

10) Alice In Zombieland by Gena Showalter


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB @ Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
Grab you'r current read
Open the book to a random page
Share with us two (2) "teasers" sentences form that page
Be careful not to include spoilers! (make sure what you share doesn't give away too much! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title of the book so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR pile if they'd like   

Today my teaser comes from... 
 Ashen Winter (Ashfall, #2)

..."Stupid, pigheaded, obstinate, obnoxious, oviparous, egg-sucking, boy." I both laid and sucked eggs? That didn't make sense. Whatever.

Oh yes, Ten by Gretchen McNeil is a definite must-read. (apparently) I'll be reading it soon :) Great pick!

I'm waiting for it to come to the store, but the only store close to me doesn't have it yet. The library will probably get it before I get the chance to buy it.
Thank you for stopping by! (=

Great teaser, very funny! I can't wait to read Ashen Winter. We have several books on our lists that we share. I just finished Alice in Zombieland and it was one of my favorites this year! Here is my Top Ten.

Forest of Hands and Teeth gave me nightmares while on a camping trip. :) And Anna Dressed in Blood was really, really good.

Here's my teaser: http://duckduckcow.blogspot.com/2012/10/teaser-tuesday-blue-is-for-nightmares.html

Even more than your teaser, I love the cursor on your page!
Here's my teaser: I love Dan Brown

Sarah S said...

Vyki: I loved Ashfall, I received Ashen Winter back in April, but had to contain myself not to read it because I had other books for review.

-You'r making it very hard, I have an addiction to beautiful covers, lol.

Jenny: Thank you, I couldn't decide between this teaser or a different one, I was going to put them both on, but chose that one instead.

emaginette: Thanks I don't really read a lot of scary books, I love scary movies though!

Sandy: The Unbecoming is not really a scary book in the way with monsters but its more of a psychological one.

Jessica: You'r brave to take a scary book with you while you go on a camping trip! LOL! I would of been a sissy and taken something like The Dark Guardian series! Which I love!

Duncan: Thanks I found it on Totally Free Cursors. Here's the website http://www.totallyfreecursors.com/


Thank you all for the comments.

Heather said...

I love a good scary book so I'm totally adding these to my to-read list! Thanks for the ideas.

Sarah S said...

Your so welcome! Hope you like them as much as I did. (=
