I fell to the cement floor, bashing my head and my shoulder. Something tore inside my shoulder. It screamed in protest, and I had trouble gathering up my body again. I felt jumbled and frozen with the pain of it.
Sky on Fire by Emmy Laybourne (pg. 110)

  1. Sounds terrifying. I'm curious -- is it a sci-fi novel?
    My Teaser is from LEAN ON ME.

    1. SKY ON FIRE? No; it's a post-apocalyptic/disaster novel. And the second in a series. Pretty good so far.

  2. That one sounds good!

    Mine this week is from classic Zane Grey western “Riders of the Purple Sage”: http://pdworkman.com/excerpt-from-riders-of-the-purple-sage-teasertuesday/

  3. Oooh, I love your list. If I had read Shadow and Bone this year instead of last it definitely would have made the cut! I love that series. I've pre-ordered Ruin and Rising, and CANNOT WAIT until it's released next week!!! Also, I haven't read Cruel Beauty yet, but I've heard so many good things about it, so I really want to check it out. Great list!

    1. THE GRISHA trilogy may be one of my new favorites. :) I've pre-ordered RUIN AND RISING as well - and I get to meet Leigh Bardugo next week!!

  4. It's VERY COOL to see JACKABY on here. I haven't heard much about it, but THAT COVER. I LOVE IT.

    1. JACKABY is the best read of the year, and I don't think anything will match it.

  5. Great list! I see a couple on there waiting in my TBR pile. But no! You're the third list I'm come across naming Cruel Beauty as a top pick...I'm starting to feel guilty for not liking it much. :(

    1. Everyone has their likes and dislikes - and it may also have been the mood you were in when you read it. I'm re-reading THRONE OF GLASS right now. The first time I read it, I hated it, but I'm actually rather enjoying it now. Still don't like Celaena, but everything else is pretty cool.
