Teaser Tuesday – August 23rd, 2016

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme currently being hosted by MizB @ Books and a Beat. All are welcome to participate!


  • Grab your current read.
  • Open to a random page.
  • Share two ‘teaser’ sentences from somewhere on that page.
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! You don’t want to give too much away so as to not ruin the book for others!
  • Share the title and author so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers.


The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black

“I suppose that was an insufferable thing to say. Maybe we don’t love any differently than you do; maybe everyone loves until they don’t – or maybe everyone loves differently, humans and faeries alike…”

-page 205

I just started this book last night but it immediately grabbed my attention. I love that it’s contemporary fantasy, which makes for a very fascinating setting. I’m also really enjoying Holly Black’s writing. This is my first book by her but I have to admit that it’s definitely making me want to check out her other novels!

Leave a link to your Teaser Tuesday in the comments! Have you read The Darkest Part of the Forest? Do you recommend any of Black’s other books?

      1. Awesome! It’s been ages since we did fun blogging stuff together. 🤗 Let me know when you’re ready to read it and I’ll buy a copy of the book. Have you read the new HP for Hype or Like Friday by any chance? It’s really good. I’m loving it! 🙌

      2. I know!!! I’ve been such a terrible blogger friend this summer (or blogger period lol) 🙈… And no, I haven’t. I’m going to jump in for next month’s book because I just refuse to read it haha. To me, it just ruins the magic of HP and the story itself but doesn’t interest me. Makes me feel like such a terrible HP fan but I can’t help it lol.

      3. We should chat about next month’s book then. I was originally thinking A Darker Shade of Magic, but I know you already read that. How about Shatter Me or The Young Elites? The problem is I’m not sure what everyone has read. I usually take a poll with about 5 books. Shoot me some ideas and I’ll start the poll for next month. We should also discuss topics. DM me on Twitter when you get a chance and we can BS like old times. 🤗 I’m really loving the new HP story. I was afraid I’d hate it but nope it’s so addicting. I’ll be done it later today.

      4. Okay, I’ll message you when I get home from work! Haha, I’ve read all 3 of those actually but I’ll do some thinking about different books to add to the poll… I’m glad you’re enjoying HP though! The story itself just didn’t seem very interesting to me, as I want there to be some good old HP magical fights and adventures lol.

      5. Sounds good. You know I’m up late anyway. 🙂 Okay, yeah whatever recs you have we can add to the poll. It’s making me want to read the original Harry Potter books from the beginning. I’m like Ron… I love Ron. 😂
