Teaser Tuesday #20

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!

My teasers:

Endure by Carrie Jones

"Get out of the way, Zara," she says.
She's holding a gun. A gun! Where did she get a freaking gun?
Austin yells at Issie, "Aim at his head."
Issie says, "Dude! Evil dude! Stop now or I'll shoot."
She looks at me for approval. For a second, I contemplate taking the gun out of her shaking hands. Astley roars in pain as Frank's fist comes at him.
"Astley, get back!" I yell.
And he leaps away, not asking why, just trusting.
And Issie pulls the trigger. - Pages 80 & 81
Loads has been happening and I could have used many quotes but this is one that doesn't give some other things away like the other ones would have.
I am really enjoying this book it seem as though Carrie Jones has saved the best until last.

              Candlewax by C. Bailey Sims

All her life Catherine had hoped to see a fairrier cat. No book, no scroll provided by her tutors had ever examined this legend, much to her frustration, and now-at the worse possible time-she was getting her wish. Only, the cat wasn't about to kill her. Catherine urged the sorrel faster. - Page 10
Only read the first chapter but so far it seems interesting and I am looking forward to seeing how everything plays out.

Both books are ARC copies so therefore subject to change.


  1. Wow! Great teaser for Endure. The Need series is not one I have looked into but if it has good action, I might consider it. Hmm the legend in Candlewax looks pretty interesting as well.
