I recently started reading the Jack Daniels mystery series by J.A. Konrath and am currently on the third book, Rusty Nail. I’m really enjoying this series so far.

My teaser:

I stood on the curb and called Officer Hajek at the Crime Lab, asking if he had time later to swing by Mulrooney’s office to see what could be done with the answering machine. He promised me he would.
“…did you like the video, Jack? You’re next…”
I shuddered.
This wasn’t the first time I’d been a target, but that didn’t mean I was used to it.
I walked back to my car, acutely aware of my surroundings.

I am still plugging away at the second book in the Grisha trilogy, Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo. I’ve been kind of everywhere with reading recently, and unfortunately it’s taking longer than I thought to get this one read. I think I’ve mentioned before, I actually get quite a bit of reading done at one of my jobs. However, the company is having some legal issues at the moment and has closed down for the time being. Sadly, that means less reading time. And less money…of course.

My teaser:

Despite its name, I loved the war room. The cartographer in me couldn’t resist the old maps wrought in animal hide and embellished in whimsical detail: the gilded lighthouse at Os Kervo, the mountain temples of the Shu, the mermaids that swam at the edges of the seas.

Tonight I’ll be starting the second book in the Grisha trilogy, Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo. I really enjoyed the first book and am super looking forward to continuing the trilogy!

My teaser:

The boy and the girl had once dreamed of ships, long ago, before they’d ever seen the True Sea. They were the vessels of stories, magic ships with masts hewn from sweet cedar and sails spun by maidens from thread of pure gold. Their crews were white mice who sang songs and scrubbed the decks with their pink tails.

Once again, my posting has been a bit…lagging, recently. Now that classes are done for the summer I’ll do my best to post more regularly! I really need to get some book tags done. However, I have been reading quite a bit. Right now I’m almost finished with the second book in the Beautiful Monsters series by Jex Lane, Sire. I stumbled upon this series last week and after reading the first book, Captivefell in love. This has quickly become one of my favorite MxM series. It is intended for mature audiences, so yes there is sexy time in these books as well as a good deal of violence, but the action, the characters, the overall plot – it’s all fantastic!

My teaser:

When Matthew opened the door to his underground room, club music assaulted his ears. Inside, Samantha danced to the beat and Devak moved right along with her.
They looked completely ridiculous, but neither of them seemed to give a shit. They were just enjoying the rhythm and moving their bodies along with the pounding unch, unch, unch.

Teaser Tuesdays #55 – April 25th

Ughhhh, I haven’t posted in forever. Forgive me!!! >.< Life’s been rather hectic these past two months with spring break, my whole family being sick or having surgery (or both) and then my sister’s wedding on top of that. But I only have one more week of classes until summer break. I am so freakin’ happy! As usual, I hope to be more active during the summer months but, unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen…^^;

I finally got around to starting the thirteenth and final book in The Hollows series by Kim Harrison, The Witch With No Name. It took me long enough to begin reading it and I have to admit it’s been a bit slow going. I keep getting distracted by other things. But I will finish it! Sooner rather than later, I’m hoping.

My teaser:

 

The sound of the water through the open windows echoed my intent as I sat cross-legged atop the slate counter within a protective pentagram and carefully etched an ever-smaller spiral into the bottom of the tiny bottle. I barely breathed, my entire world cycled down to the golden glow of glass and the thin tracing of silver flowing from the stylus.

I’m still plugging away at re-reading one of my favorite series! I just started the third book in The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher, Grave Peril.

My teaser:

2868888

 

Distantly, but quickly growing nearer, I could hear haunting, musical baying, ghostly in the midnight air. “Holy shit,” I breathed. “Hellhounds.”
“Harry,” Michael said sternly. “You know I hate it when you swear.”
“You’re right. Sorry. Holy shit,” I breathed, “heckhounds.”

I recently decided I wanted to re-read one of my favorite series. I’ve been bugging one of my friend’s to read it, then got in the mood myself. So, I started the first book in The Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher, Storm Front.

Paranoid? Probably. But just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean that there isn’t an invisible demon about to eat your face.
