Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should be Reading!

My Teaser for this week is from Etiquette and Espionage! (Which hopefully I will finish by the end of today!!)
Etiquette & Espionage (Finishing School, #1)
"A tremendous amount of steam emanated from below the lowest step, and with a great creaking and groaning, the stairs closed in upon themselves. The whole front section of the building that housed the main doors compressed downward like a concertina."

Okay so that quote wasn't super exciting.....Hmmmmm....Well it was random and I really like the book so far!

What books are YOU reading????


  1. I can't believe I didn't think of spies...I love the Gallagher Girls and Also Known As!

    Great list :)

    Erin @ YA Book Crush

  2. Oh, I have heard many good things about Etiquette and Espionage... I wonder if I have it on my tbr list yet.... off to good reads I go=)

    Bethany @ Bythebookful

    1. I just finished it a couple of hours ago and IT WAS AMAZING! Thanks for stopping by!!

  3. Oh I should've added Robin Hood to my list too. I'm obsessed about stories about him and his merry men! Great list!
    Here's Top Ten!

    Also great, descriptive teaser. I like it!
    Here's my teaser!

    ~Stephanie @ Bookfever

    my TTT

    1. Scarlet was so amazing!! I'm dying to read the next book in that series! (If it ever comes out!)

  5. Yes to parallel worlds and spies! I love them both. Also a fan of space and time travel. Great list!
    Here's my TTT

  6. Great list! Parallel universes--did not think to add that to my list. :) Happy Reading

    My Top Ten

  7. Yes to Space Travel! I wanted to include that one in mine, but I already had ten words :(

    Fabulous choices!

  8. Spies are so fun to read about! I love the idea of Robin Hood, but have not found any books about him that I like that much though a few years ago I read a book about his daughter called Rowan Hood by Nancy Springer and remember thinking it was not bad. Have you ever read it?

    Fun list!

  9. Nice list! I've been meaning to read some steampunk, but I haven't done that yet. It sounds like something I would enjoy.

  10. Ooh. Great list. I don't know how I managed to forget time travel on my own, as it's SO EXCITING.

  11. Great TTT! Steampunk is something I really would like to read more of, but have only dipped into recently. (The only one I've read is the Leviathan series by Scott Westerfeld). So thanks for the other suggestions! The rest of these I either agree with, or are indifferent towards. Like Robin Hood. I don't mind Robin Hood, but really am not overly intrigued by such stories. But hey, if it's your favorite legend it definitely makes sense! Thanks for stopping by my TTT!
