Teaser Tuesday #12

I’ve decided to join this ’cause I think it’s pretty fun and easy. Plus I really want to quote smart retorts, full blown bullying, words of wisdom, swoon worthy lines and the like without giving much to readers about the entire book. A quote or two won’t hurt I guess. So this is how you do it:

  1. Grab your current read.
  2. Randomly open a page.
  3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
  4. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  5. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This is for this week’s Teaser Tuesday:

Gates of Thread and Stone

by Lori M. Lee

“Becoming the Kahl’s dog, especially if this man had lived originally in the East Quarter, was a betrayal of the unspoken code of the Labyrinth.”

“It was impossible to see beyond the flat, dry earth illuminated by the energy stone. Avan checked the map every once in a while to make sure we have not gone off course, but we could have been anywhere and nowhere.”

I’ll be out for three days to get some much needed rest away from work and I’m not sure if I can update my blog, but I’ll be back soon enough to reply to all of you. Yay! Anyway, you could share some teasers on your current read too. Comment the link of your own Teaser Tuesday so I can check it out and have an idea of amazing books that I would want to read.



Teaser Tuesdays (TT) is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Gates of Thread and Stone

In the Labyrinth, we had a saying: keep silent, keep still, keep safe.

In a city of walls and secrets, where only one man is supposed to possess magic, seventeen-year-old Kai struggles to keep hidden her own secret—she can manipulate the threads of time. When Kai was eight, she was found by Reev on the riverbank, and her “brother” has taken care of her ever since. Kai doesn’t know where her ability comes from—or where she came from. All that matters is that she and Reev stay together, and maybe one day move out of the freight container they call home, away from the metal walls of the Labyrinth. Kai’s only friend is Avan, the shopkeeper’s son with the scandalous reputation that both frightens and intrigues her.

Then Reev disappears. When keeping silent and safe means losing him forever, Kai vows to do whatever it takes to find him. She will leave the only home she’s ever known and risk getting caught up in a revolution centuries in the making. But to save Reev, Kai must unravel the threads of her past and face shocking truths about her brother, her friendship with Avan, and her unique power.



I’m so excited that I’m reading this at last. Finally. I’ve started reading it and in fact the book excites me to read more. Love the idea that the main character is a time manipulator. Hmm.. I will just leave all my thoughts for the book review. Anyway, I’ve read so many good reviews and some of the not so good reviews too which really broke my heart.

Let’s have the good reviews first:

Waiting on Wednesday #15

My. My. My. Today’s feature for Waiting on Wednesday is such an exciting book. I personally feel excited about this since I’ve been digging up time travel books for the last couple of months so stumbling upon this book is like hitting some kind of jackpot.

At a school where Quantum Paradox 101 is a required course and history field trips are literal, sixteen year-old time traveler Bree Bennis excels…at screwing up.

After Bree botches a solo midterm to the 21st century by accidentally taking a boy hostage (a teensy snafu), she stands to lose her scholarship. But when Bree sneaks back to talk the kid into keeping his yap shut, she doesn’t go back far enough. The boy, Finn, now three years older and hot as a solar flare, is convinced he’s in love with Bree, or rather, a future version of her that doesn’t think he’s a complete pain in the arse. To make matters worse, she inadvertently transports him back to the 23rd century with her.

Once home, Bree discovers that a recent rash of accidents at her school are anything but accidental. Someone is attacking time travelers. As Bree and her temporal tagalong uncover seemingly unconnected clues—a broken bracelet, a missing data file, the art heist of the millennium—that lead to the person responsible, she alone has the knowledge to piece the puzzle together. Knowledge only one other person has. Her future self.

But when those closest to her become the next victims, Bree realizes the attacker is willing to do anything to stop her. In the past, present, or future.



Expected publication would be on the 21st of October, 2014 by St. Martin’s Griffin and it will be 336 pages in hardcover. Look at that sweet book cover. That’s so wallpaper worthy, I meant a computer wallpaper. Ha! Ha! I can’t imagine this book having any other book cover than that sweet looking one. Really caught my attention. That’s a compliment from someone like me that sort of have a short attention span. The rundown is quite intriguing and thrilling too. I’m assuming that this is going to be an exciting read having all those snags and twists given on the summary.
