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!





Rapunzel’s tower is a satellite. She can’t let down her hair—or her guard. 

In this third book in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army. 

Their best hope lies with Cress, who has been trapped on a satellite since childhood with only her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker—unfortunately, she’s just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice. 

When a daring rescue goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a high price. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing stop her marriage to Emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only ones who can.





“Honestly, Thorne.” A girl.  Linh Cinder? “Do you ever think before you speak?”

“What?  What did I say?”

“‘Is that all hair?’”

“Did you see it?  It was like a cross between a magpie nest and a ball of yarn after it’s been mauled by a cheetah.”

~ p. 41, Cress by Marissa Meyer


“But you’re a prisoner,” said Thorne.  

“I prefer damsel in distress,” she murmured.  

One side of Thorne’s mouth quirked up, into that perfect half smile he’d had in his graduation photo.  A look that was a little bit devious, and all sorts of charming.
