Teaser Tuesday- The Last Ember

teasertuesdays31Teaser Tuesdaysis 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!

“Not every researcher,”  Jonathan said, his tone gathering conviction.  “At the academy I researched the possibility that Josephus was not a traitor to Jerusalem, but surrendered to the Romans to become a-“

“Spy?”  Mildren cut him off,

“Yes,”  Jonathan nodded.  “A spy from Jerusalem planted in the Roman court.”

Sorry I went over 2 sentences.  I tried to be good, but couldn’t help myself.  Visit MizB  for more teasers.


Thank you!

I love when people take the time to pass along an award to me.  I know it’s not an Emmy, an Oscar, or even a BBAW award, but it does mean that I have my own small place in the blogosphere and people like to visit me here.  So, please take a minute and visit the ladies who awarded them to me, they are all awesome and they obviously have good taste 😉

I only pass along an award if I have not received it before.

Thanks to  Heather!  If you haven’t checked out Gofita’s Pages you really need  to, like right now.  Too bad you missed Pirate Week, but you can look back and read her posts.

Here are the rules for this award:

1. Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy Friends.
2. Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author & the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.
3. Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog, and link to This Post, which explains The Award.
4. Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit this postand add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List. That way, we’ll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives This Prestigious Honor!
5. Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.

I’m passing this one along to Margot at Joyfully Retired

Heather also passed this on to me… The Splash Award is given to alluring, amusing, bewitching, impressive, and inspiring blogs. When you receive this award, you must:
– Put the logo on your blog/post.
– Nominate & link up to 9 blogs which allure, amuse, bewitch, impress or inspire you.

I’m awarding this one to Natalie at The Book Inn.


This Lemonade Award came from  Laura’s Reviews.  I love her blog and you should check her out.


And thanks to Sassy Brit for this bloody great award!   

The Bloody Great Blogger award is to be given to 5 bloggers who have been supportive and extra special to you in the blogging process. That person who always comments or the one who emails you to let you know about that Freudian slip you missed, the blogger who links to your posts or lifts you up when your blog is down.
I’m going to pass this one along to Cee Cee of BookSplurge and Staci of Life in the Thumb.


And thank you Trisha for this Friendship Bear and Let’s Be Friends awards.

She has lots of YA reviews and giveaways and is super sweet.

I’m passing these two award on to Nise at Under the Boardwalk.  Her blog is one I always look forward to reading.
