“The truth is the most desirable woman in the world and we are the most jealous lovers, reflexively denying anyone else the slightest glimpse of her. We betray her routinely, spending hours and days stupor-deep in lies, and then turn back to her holding out the lover’s Mobius strip: But I only did it because I love you so much.” (3%)

OKAY. Wow book. Way to start blowing me away from the get-go.

“A mantle took up one wall, and I saw amusement that he’d nailed a painting of burning logs in the empty space where a real fire ought to have been. A small sitting area surround the fire place, reminding me for a moment of home.” (pg 87 ARC)


Almost too late did I see the beam of sunlight crossing his path.

“No!” I gasped, throwing my weight into Tristan, knocking him down sideways into a narrow alleyway.

I eyed the beam of sunlight that was still too close for comfort. “The sun.”

“Everyone knows that trolls turn to stone in the sunlight,” I said.

His astonishment faded and to my horror, he started to laugh. Reaching out one arm, he waggled his fingers in the sun. “Oh, the stories you humans come up with,” he gasped out, and my cheeks burned. (pg. 264 ARC)

So, for some reason, this first teaser made me really laugh. The image of it. In case you’re wondering, they’re underground, no fires allowed. I think that’s why I love it. Also, testimony to Tristan’s personality, ha. The second one, was just a really cute moment, and a good reminder to not always believe everything you’re told 😉

  1. Great teasers! Both books sound really good. I am adding them to my massive list 🙂

    My TT

    1. I haven’t read In The Woods yet, but it definitely sounds interesting doesn’t it!

  2. Both books sound enchanting. I love the cover of IN THE WOODS.
    My Teaser is from SEVEN LITTLE WORDS.

    1. It’s pretty awesomely creepy looking isn’t it!

  3. The second one had me laughing more than the first, but if I was reading the book it might be the other way around. Great teasers.

    1. I’m glad the second one made you laugh! It definitely made me giggle which was why I wanted to share it 😉 The first book does sound pretty interesting though, doesn’t it!

  4. Yay for both of these books! I read In the Woods, oh, 5 or 6 years ago, at least. I remember really liking it but I think I’d like it even more now. And that teaser is just fantastic. I’ve heard so many good things about Stolen Songbird!! I’m pretty much definitely reading this one within the next few days. I love that about the sunlight! 🙂

  5. Nice teasers! Both were very intense. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Thanks for sharing! Really looking forward to reading these two!
