Teaser Tuesdays #11 – August 11th

Just a quick little note before my post! I wanted to mention that I was on vacation last week, so that is the reason for my lack of posts and responses. And unfortunately I had to come back and go straight to work, so yeah…life. But I’m planning on doing both my book memes this week and I know I have a few other posts that need to be written up so I shall try my best to work on them when I have some time! :)

The tufty-haired wizard waved his wand high over the heads of Bill and Fleur and a shower of silver stars fell upon them, spiraling around their now entwined figures. As Fred and George led a round of applause, the golden balloons overhead burst: Birds of paradise and tiny golden bells flew and floated out of them, adding their songs and chime to the din.

I am currently re-reading the sixth book in the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling. I forgot how much I enjoyed learning about Voldemort’s past in this one. Not looking forward to the ending though…*tears up*

 

 

 


What did I recently finish reading?

I finished up the fifth Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling, last week. This is the book where everything really starts going downhill. Does anyone else miss the days of innocence back when they were merely trying to kill off a basilisk? xD

 

 

 


What do I think I’ll read next?

I’ll be finishing up my re-read of this amazing series with the seventh and final book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling.

“There’s a customer out here looking for a joke cauldron, Mr. Weasley and Mr. Weasley,
” she said.

Harry found it odd to hear Fred and George called “Mr. Weasley,” but they took it in their stride.

“Right you are, Verity, I’m coming,” said George promptly. “Harry, you help yourself to anything you want, all right? No charge.”

I am still on the fourth book of the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling. I should be finishing it up tonight, though!

Here is my teaser:

“Oh come on,” he said impatiently, “we need partners, we’re going to look really stupid if we haven’t got any, everyone else has…”
“I can’t come with you,” said Hermione, now blushing, “because I’m already going with someone.”
“No, you’re not!” said Ron. “You just said that to get rid of Neville!”
“Oh did I?” said Hermione, and her eyes flashed dangerously. “Just because it’s taken you three years to notice, Ron, doesn’t mean no one else has spotted I’m a girl!”

A little longer than it should be, according to the rules, but it was such a great scene it was hard picking which parts to include. Teenagers and their hormones. This was the first book to really focus on what ‘romance’ there is in this series. Kind of…. Anyway, until next week!

Happy reading! :)

“Death Eaters?” said Harry. “What are Death Eaters?”

“It’s what You-Know-Who’s supporters called themselves,” said Bill. “I think we saw what’s left of them tonight – the ones who managed to keep themselves out of Azkaban, anyway.”

What am I currently reading?

5As I mentioned in my TT post yesterday, I am currently re-reading the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. I finished up the second one last night and am now reading the third, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. I’m super glad I decided to re-read this series. I almost forgot about all of the gloriously witty and humorous dialogue in these books. Everyone and their mom should read this series if they haven’t already.

 


What did I recently finish reading?

15881As I stated above, I just finished the second book in the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, last night. Once again, I applaud myself on the decision to re-red this amazing series.

 

 

 


What do I think I’ll read next?

My Soul to Save (Soul Screamers, #2)I said in my last WWW that I would continue the Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent. I do plan on continuing this series, but it might wait until I’m done re-reading Harry Potter. I’ve been reading multiple books at a time for awhile but I’m really into the HP books at the moment so I’ll probably just stick to those for the time being.

As the teachers bent over Justin and Nearly Headless Nick, examining them, Peeves broke out into song:

“Oh, Potter, you rotter, oh, what have you done,
You’re killing off students, you think it’s good fun -“

“That’s enough, Peeves!” barked Professor McGonagall, and Peeves zoomed away backward, with his tongue out at Harry.

I know it’s a bit late…but my sister came into town this morning and I’ve been running around non-stop all day and I just really want to take a nap right now. Sleeeeeep. ANYWAY.

What am I currently reading?

I’m still currently reading The Hostile Hospital by Lemony Snicket, the eighth book in the A Series of Unfortunate Events series. Even though it’s a short read I’ve been reading my other book, plus catching up on some comics. Hopefully I’ll have this one finished by next week. Doubt it though…I need a vacation where I do nothing but read!

 

I am also currently reading the fourth book in the Nikki & Michael series, Kiss the Night Goodbye by Keri Arthur. I’m still really liking this series and am hoping the ending will be satisfying.

 

 


What did I recently finish reading?

I recently finished the third book in the Nikki & Michael series, Chasing the Shadows by Keri Arthur. This one was another great installment in the series with another great antagonist.

 

 


What do I think I’ll read next?

3Next I’m planning on re-reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling. And of course the rest of the series after that. I’ve been wanting to re-read this series for awhile now and this past weekend there was a marathon on ABC Family so it really put me in the mood.
