Tuesday Memes:Regrets, Birthdays, and Teasers

Hello Fellow Page Turners,

Guess what! Today is my 20th birthday. I'm officially old. :) Okay, not really, but I'm excited to enter the twenty-something range.

And now for the Tuesday memes!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish featuring a new top ten list each week. Everyone can participate just head on over to their blog and sign up. Each week they will post a new top ten list that one of our bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All they ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday.

Top 10: Series I Need to Start Reading 
(aka series I regret not having read)

1.  Unearthly by Cynthia Hand- I've just heard really great things 
about this one. It looks really good.
Goodreads/ Amazon

2. The Summoning and The Gathering- I've just heard really good 
things about Kelley Armstrong. I think both of 
these series looks awesome.
Goodreads/ Amazon 

3. Iron King-I've heard good things about Kagawa and want 
to see if she's as good as people say she is.

 4. Fallen- Once again, I've just heard realy good things
and am curious what I would think about it.

5. Perfect Chemistry- I know I would love this one.
It just looks fantastic.

6. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer-I've heard mixed
things about this one as well, but I'd love to find out what
I think about it.

7. Sloppy Firsts-It's just one of those
books I need to read.

8. Bright Young Things-I enjoyed the other series
and am interested in finding out what she does with this one. 

9.Vampire Academy- Once again, another one I've heard mixed
opinions about, but I feel like I need to read them just
to find out.
Goodreads / Amazon

10.  Beautiful Creatures and Hush, Hush- I've heard mixed things
about both of these, but I feel like I need to read both of these 
just to see what I think. 
BC- Goodreads  / Amazon
HH- Goodreads / Amazon 

And that's all for me. What was your top ten? Did you have as hard of a time picking as I did? Please feel free to leave your link in the comments. 
I love reading them. :)

~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. 

This week my teaser comes from Firefly Island by Lisa Wingate. 

You can add it to your Goodreads shelf here. 

“He looked like a gypsy-slash-actor, the guy who would play the prince of Persia, or the pirate king, or the Jedi Knight--I wondered if he was married and if he wanted to get married.  Anytime in the next decade would be fine. I'd wait.” ~11 

My review will be up later this week. It was awesome though. Definitely recommend it.  

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. :)

  4. Happy birthday! Jessica Darling would make a great birthday companion - she is hilarious and should be every late teen/early twenties girl's best friend - just saying.

  5. Happy Birthday! 20? You're just a baby!

    I haven't read any of these series either, although there are several that I'd definitely like to read. *Sigh* So many books, so little time ...

    Glad to have found you via TTT!

  6. Happy birthday :)

    Unearthly and VA are on my list as well, and I just got a copy of Vampire Academy yesterday so I'll definitely be starting that soon.

    I was noooot a fan of Fallen, but that series is very divisive so you might like it!

  21. I completely missed this topic!
    I love the Perfect Chemistry series- it's definitely worth a read! I wasn't so keen on Fallen- only read the first one.
    I need to read Bright Young Things and Mara Dyer- both books sitting on my Book Shelf!
