Teaser Tuesday Is a Weekly bookish Meme, Hosted by MitzB of Should Be Reading. 

Anyone can play along.  Just do the following:

 Grab your current read Open to a random page Share 2 (Two) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

   Be Careful, No Spoilers Please (Make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don’t want to ruing the book for others)    Share title and author too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their tbr list if they like your teaser!Please leave me a comment with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your ‘teasers’ in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog) Thanks! 

I am reading an Advance Copy of Vlkolak King (The Gothic Memoirs Book 4) Which is out Oct 31 (I have a giveaway for it Oct 30, and all 3 previous books in a giveaway going now) This book is not on Goodreads yet, but you can see my cover reveal post here with the blurb. HERE, but if you had not read the first 3 books, you may not want to, so not to spoil anything.

Teaser #1

Alexei caressed my back. “Are you all right?”
“I’m fine … but you know I hate crowds and people in general, for that matter.That was absolutely awful, and I’m certain I will never put myself through again. Why on Earth would people feel the need to go up to a complete stranger and kiss them? It’s weird, right?” I waited for him to confirm and approve my neurotic issues. All I got was a look of disbelief. “My darling, you are a social nightmare.”

Teaser #2

“And I love you— all of you. I love your temper, your sick and twisted sense of humor, and most of all, your empathetic nature. I don’t see them as flaws; they’re your strengths. I wouldn't change a thing about you, my love.”
I just looked at him adoringly—I was so in love with that man, it was ridiculous. How he could love me back, as he claimed, was a mystery—I didn't deserve him.

I Just finished up Hidden (Firelight 3) by Sophie Jordan (the final book, so sad to see it go) My review will come soon. I went back and forth from reading kindle to listening with the wispersynce with audible, quite cool that. Loved being able to listen too when doing housework. 

 I have one Teaser for you.

I feel my lips part, speak, say something. I can’t be sure what—not while I can’t hear my own voice. Not while a million thoughts ricochet through me. I think I say Will’s name. Tamra. Mom. Help, help, help … Then nothing as darkness rolls in.

Tuesday Intros, First Chapter, First Paragraph

First Chapter First Paragraph - Tuesday Intros Hosted by Bibliophile By The Sea

Every Tuesday I will participate in the Tuesday Intro First Chapter-First Paragraph Intros.
These are books we decided to read based on the first paragraph or so. Then find another “Teaser” in the book somewhere to catch our interest. Leave me a comment with link to your post, and if your a new follower be sure to let me know. I want to be sure to follow back.

I am sharing the beginning of Bitter Frost (Books 1 and 2 in this one, 1 Bitter Frost, 2nd The Wolf Fey)  Goodreads


The dream had come again, like the sun after a storm. It was the same dream that had come many times before, battering down the doors of my mind night after night since I was a child. It was the sort of dreams all girls dream, I suppose – a dream of mysterious worlds and hidden doorways, of leaves that breathe and make music when they are rustled in the wind, and rivers that bubble and froth with secrets. Dreams, my mother always told me, represent part of our unconsciousness – the place where we store the true parts of our soul, away from the rest of the world. My mother was an artist; she always thought this way. If it was true, then my true soul was a denizen of this strange and fantastical world. I often felt, in waking hours, that I was in exile, somehow – somehow less myself, less true, than I had been in my enchanted slumber. The real world was only a dream, only an echo, and in silent moments throughout the day it would hit me: I am not at home here.
