Top Ten Tuesday #50 + Teaser Tuesday #11

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish 

This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic: Top 10 Cover Themes I Love. Okay, so I actually couldn't think of that many, and I was too lazy to come up with an extra five that I dislike. So, this is actually Top 6 Cover Themes I Love.

More than once, I stop myself from moving around to keep warm or glancing out the window to see if Tomas is coming. Instead, I close my eyes and think about the happiness I felt when I first arrived at the University and saw this building. It was a week after The Testing. The sun was hot on my skin and I couldn't stop smiling. I had made it through the Testing. I was living my dream of following in my father's footsteps. Everything was possible, especially with Tomas holding my hand firmly in his. I hadn't known then how precious that happiness was. How free I felt or how quickly I would realize that nothing about my life was as I thought. That I was trapped.Independent Study by Joelle Charbonneau (pg. 173)

  1. I like your widget thing with your covers. I might just steal that idea ;)

    2. Thanks for following, Vonnie! :) I got my widget from Riffle.com; it's a great website. INDEPENDENT STUDY is the sequel to THE TESTING by Joelle Charbonneau - a dystopian trilogy.

  4. Oh, very clever how you've presented your list :)
    Although I'm not really a fan of fancy dresses, I am always drawn to them!

    1. Riffle.com is where I get my widget! :) I do confess that I have a thing for dresses. As a general rule, I am not at all girly. But I do love dresses. :)

  5. Sounds like the character's life is about to change drastically. So sad, especially after going through The Testing and having such high hopes!
    My Teaser is from NOT THE MARRYING KIND.
