Top Ten & Teaser Tuesday: Books I Was "Forced" to Read + The Iron Traitor

Today's Topic:
These books aren't necessarily books that we hated or didn't want to read, but more along the lines of books that were recommended to us, books that were surrounded by so much hype we just had to read them, or books we read for school and book clubs and such.

(these are in no particular order)


Some of these I've absolutely loved, some I really didn't like, and others are just kind of in the middle but each book is one that I didn't exactly pick up on my own. Most of these are books that I had to read for school. The Hunger Games and Twilight are books I read because of the hype surrounding them and the others are books that were recommended to me. If it wasn't for them I'm not sure I would have even picked them up.

So I finally have a teaser I can share with you this week and it's from The Iron Traitor--a book that I've been dying to read for months and I'm so excited to finally have in my hands!!

The faery steepled long fingers together. "I will tell you, Ethan Chase. I can tell you the prophecy, and your part in it, for a price."
Dammit. Should've see this coming. My knee-jerk instinct was to refuse. That was my number one rule: never make a bargain with the fey, under any circumstance.
But this prophecy sounded bad. And a lot bigger than I had imagined. "What price?" I asked warily. The Thin Man smiled.

I just love this series so much!!

Link me to your Top Tens and Teasers!

  3. Ugh, a friend BEGGED me to read Marked a few years ago but I couldn't stand it. Not my cup of tea at all. But I didn't have the heart to tell her, so when she asked me to read the others in the series, I carefully avoided the topic...

  4. I think the only book that I echoed from your list was Romeo & Juliet, which I love and hate at the same time. I didn't love the Odyssey until I had to teach it.

  5. The Thin Man is so creepy! Great teaser :D I was forced to read The Odyssey too -- and I didn't like it all that much. The Iliad is better, I think. More battles :)
