This week marks the twentieth time I've participated in Teaser Tuesday. This meme is hosted by Miz B of Should be Reading.
The rules are really simple. Just grab the book you're reading and turn to a random page. Pick two sentences and post them along with the page number, book, and author.
Without further ado here is my Teaser Tuesday for this week. I've been reading a lot of books lately. However, the one I'd like to share for my Teaser Tuesday comes from Saving June. I did two sentences, but not two sentences in a row. Hope you don't mind.
"That’s the I Am Silently Judging You Look—I recognize it because it’s the same expression Laney has when she sees people wearing black and blue together, or the look I myself have when people pontificate on the brilliance of Ayn Rand."
It was nice, I guess, of Jake to hold my hair back, instead of just leaving me there. “It was a lovely moment,” he says drily. “Now there’s a band name for you—the Lovely Pukes.”
I don't have page numbers, sorry. I really like both of those quotes. I feel like they capture the essence of this story really well. I will admit I didn't expect to love this book as much as I did, but it was just fantastic.
That's all for me. Which book did you pick this week. Please comment and leave your link. I check out every single link and respond" to every comment. :)

All they ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday.
1. Academy 7 by Anne Osterlund (YA Sci-Fi)- I absolutely adored this book. I have loved all of Osterlund's novels actually. This one was just so incredible. It's sci-fi, but not dystopian sci-fi. I absolutley loved the writing in this one, the characters, and plot.
2. The Witness by Dee Henderson (Adult Christian Romantic Suspense)- I love this author and I'm so thrilled that she is releasing a new novel. I guess you all know what my W.O.W post will be tomorrow. :) This novel was great just like all of Henderson's novels are. But there are two guys in this story and she doesn't choose one. I want to know who she chooses.
3. One for the Murphys by Lynda Mullaly Hunt (YA Realistic)- I loved this one. I would be interested in seeing what happened to Carley. What happened later on in her life. I know why they won't make a sequel, but I wish they would.
4. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee (Classic)- I'd love any chance to read anything else by Harper Lee. I think this novel ended perfectly. I just would have really liked to see another book by Harper Lee set in this same time frame.
5. Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell (Classic)- I know that there is a sequel,but it wasn't written by Mitchell. I would love to see Mitchell's take on what would happen if there was a sequel.
6. The O'Malley series by Dee Henderson (Adult Christian Romantic Suspense)- I know it had to end. There are six in the series, but I've read them all so many times. I just don't want to let these characters go. I wish there were more.
7. On Little Wings by Regina Sirois (Realistic Young Adult)- I loved loved loved this book. Definitely one of my favorites of the year. I would love to see what happens after this novel ends, but I understand why making a sequel might be hard. I'd read it though.
8. Story of a Girl by Sara Zarr (Young Adult Realistic)- Yes, I understand why there isn't a sequel, but I just loved this story. I would love reading more about these characters. I know I would read it.
9. Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling- I didn't want this series to end. Yes, I know she's writing a new book, but the day I had to exit the HP world was a sad day indeed. I wouldn't have minded staying in it a bit longer, but I can understand why it had to end.
10. Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler (Young Adult Realistic)- Once again, I understand why there isn't a sequel, but I loved this story and the characters. I would love to read more about Anna.
And that's all for me. What was your top ten? What books do you wish had a sequel? Please feel free to leave your link in the comments. I love reading them. :)
