    Good teaser. I haven’t read that book in years. Wonder if it’s still on my shelf…

    Weirdly enough, this has been in my TBR pile for about a year–have never read it. Do you like it?

    I read this so long ago I’m not sure I remember that much about it. Seems like it might be worth a revisit.

    My teaser is up here.

    I just looked up the synopsis and now I am wondering how it is that I’ve never read this book. I’m definitely adding it to my TBR list right now. Thanks!

    Interesting; I’ve not read this one. I’ll have to check it out.

    I just picked this book up earlier in the week. I have always been curious and finding it for 50 cents, I couldn’t pass it up. Nice teaser!
