Teaser Tuesdays (58)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

Grab your current read 

Open to a random page 

Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page 

BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) 

Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Teaser 1:

"Grace, I thought, closing my eyes. Please remember who I am. I opened my eyes. She was gone."

Forever by Maggie Stiefvater
p. 112

While I love Maggie Stiefvater's writing style I have been struggling to get through this final book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls series. The pacing is very slow for what should be a thrilling conclusion. I think I had issues with the pacing when reading Linger too.

Teaser 2:

"I swallow and try to smile, but my stomach is roiling, although this time it's not from hunger. Alistair will come here again. Somehow I have to stop him."

Always a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough

I think I like this sequel to Once A Witch even more than the first book. I like that the time travel aspect plays a bigger part and most of the book so far has been set in 19th Century New York.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

The adventures of Tam and Gabriel continue with more time travel, Talents, spy work, and of course, the evil Knights.

Since the gripping conclusion of Once A Witch, Tamsin Greene has been haunted by her grandmother's prophecy that she will soon be forced to make a crucial decision—one so terrible that it could harm her family forever. When she discovers that her enemy, Alistair Knight, went back in time to Victorian-era New York in order to destroy her family, Tamsin is forced to follow him into the past. Stranded all alone in the nineteenth century, Tamsin soon finds herself disguised as a lady's maid in the terrifying mansion of the evil Knight family, avoiding the watchful eye of the vicious matron, La Spider, and fending off the advances of Liam Knight. As time runs out, both families square off in a thrilling display of magic. And to her horror, Tamsin finally understands the nature of her fateful choice.


  1. Why does she have to stop Alastair? I guess there is danger nearby. Great Teaser.

  2. I too thought forever dragged and dragged. It picks up in a big way for the last 50 pages, but overall I ended up being rather disappointed by a book I had really been looking forward to. Two teasers for me this week, with giveaways :)

  3. I have 2 for Tues also.

    I keep considering The Witch series.


  4. I liked Always a Witch too. I haven't had a chance to start Forever yet but it is on my stack. Mine are from Heartless by Gail Carriger and Always a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough. Happy reading!

  5. I'm not a big fan of the Shiver series but Always a Witch is coming up on my TBR soon! Thanks for the teaser!

    Thanks for visiting My Teaser.

  6. Oh no Grace disappeared! She didn't remember him! Wait she must have known him by his scent!

    Arghhhhh..... where is my copy! Mailman please please !

  7. I think if I go through the teasers enough I will be able to read the whole book! : ) Great teaser I can't wait to read this book!

    My Teasers!

  8. I'm guessing the title Forever means you keep on reading forever and ever. Just kidding. I like the second teaser the best. Makes me want to know more.

    My teaser is here: Quirky Girls Read

  9. Great teasers. I loved Always A Witch.

  10. Oh those are both good!

    My belated TT may be a little controversial.
