Teaser Tuesday: The Fall, Sublime, Complete Nothing, & The Queen of the Tearling


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.


I must be in the vault, held in place by solid stone. Beneath the house. The dead of my family press around me. We're entombed by marble shot through with a vein of pink, a rare and costly stone, thick enough to keep the waters of the tarn from seeping down into the crypt.

~ The Fall by Bethany Griffin, Kindle Location 185 (ARC)




The campus is larger than she expects, but somehow she knows where to look- right, not left- to find the grouping of smaller brick buildings and, in the distance, a wood cabin. she moves forward with a different kind of excitement now, like walking into a warm house knowing what's for dinner. The familiar kind. Except she has no idea where she is. Or who.

~ Sublime by Christina Lauren, Kindle Location 59 (ARC)




I summoned every ounce of strength within me, called on every triumph of my endless, immortal existence to buoy me, and forced myself to stand. Then I cleared my throat and followed the love of my life and the former god who was my best friend into Lake Carmondy High. If ever there had been a sight more surreal than the two of them moving together under the huge HOMECOMING! banner, I wasn't aware of it.

~ Complete Nothing by Kieran Scott, pg. 11 (ARC)




"Nice collection you've got in there, Queenie," Arliss remarked as he approached the table. "There's a few odd duck book collectors salted around the Tearling. I could probably get you a damn good price." 

 "What collectors?" 

 "I don't reveal my clients. Want to sell?" 

 "Not a chance. I'd give up my crown first."

~ The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen, pg. 273-274

  1. Heehee! Loving that tease from Queen of Tearling! Because really, who gives up books?! Okay, granted, I have donated ones that I didn't enjoy, but if I loved them, they're mine forever!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!
