Teaser Tuesday: Winter Street & The Iron King


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm.


There are fake wrapped presents in a studious pile on top of the filing cabinet; those empty boxes sit in a storage closet for eleven months, gathering dust, until Cynthia, the office manager, brings them out the Monday after Thanksgiving. This thought strikes Margaret as unbearably sad. In so many ways, her life is an empty box, prettily wrapped.

~ Winter Street by Elin Hilderbrand, Kindle Location 163-167




Grimalkin glared at me. "Your disbelief will cripple you if you think like that, human. Do not believe this impossible, or it will be."

~ The Iron King by Julie Kagawa, pg. 190

  1. All those empty presents--that is a sad thought. I have been wanting to read something by Elin Hilderbrand. I hope Winter Street is good!

    The Iron King is one I want to read as well.

    1. I'm enjoying Winter Street so far, but it's not your typical feel good holiday book. This family has some major issues!

    1. The Iron King is indeed YA. It's in the Iron Fey series. Several Larks are huge fans!

  4. The Iron King sounds really interesting. I'm enjoying Amy Tan's The Bonesetter's Daughter. Here's my teaser: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-15o

  5. I read Winter Street last year and listened to Winter Stroll this year. There is just something about this dysfunctional family that pulls you in! Also loved The Iron King.

    1. I agree - I feel compelled to keep reading even though some of the family members are not my cup of tea. The novel is enjoyable, but isn't a shiny Hallmark sort of holiday read.
