Teaser Tuesdays

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

Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
My Teaser::
1) "You don't mind pinning a girl down and threatening her," said Matt, "but when her friends turn up, you're scared spitless."
2) One foot on the lip of the tomb, he rested the book on his knee and opened it.
Dark Reunion by L. J. Smith

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your 2 ‘teasers’ in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks!

Wishing The World Was A Better Place

Title: The Fury and Dark Reunion
Author: L.J. Smith
Series: Vampire Diaries
Rating: 4/5

Elena: transformed, the golden girl has become what she once feared and desired. Stefan: tormented by losing Elena, he's determined to end his feud with Damon once and for all—whatever the cost. But slowly he begins to realize that his brother is not his only enemy. Damon: at last, he possesses Elena. But will his thirst for revenge against Stefan poison his triumph? Or can they come together to face one final battle? Collected here in one edition are the third and fourth volumes of The Vampire Diaries, a riveting conclusion to the tale of two vampire brothers and the beautiful girl torn between them.

On book 3 and starting to get hooked...

I am on the third volume. As per usual I wanted to read the books before I watched the show. I had to push through the first book, I really disliked Elena, but she’s grown on me. Now and I can’t wait to find out what happens next! Smith does a great job of making you like Damon, which I was was doubting at the beginning too. I hear the show is better than the books, what do you think?

I’m giving the series a 4 star rating for now, it’s good but not one of my favorites...yet.

Plot in under 10:
Popular girl falls for vampire/possible killer. Evil brother interferes.
