teaser Tuesday (5) Bloodlines & The Golden Lily

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 God, Sage. Your eyes. How have I never noticed them?"

That uncomfortable feeling was spreading over me again. "What about them?"

"The color," he breathed. "When you stand in the light. They're amazing... like molten gold. I could paint those..." He reached toward me but then pulled back. "They're beautiful. You're beautiful.”

I absolutely love this moment in the series- the moment that Adrian realizes that there is more to Sydney Sage than meets the well eyes....

You asked about Rose? I tried to be a better person for her—but it was to impress her, to get her to want me. But when I’m around you, I want to be better because… well, because it feels right. Because I want to. You make me want to become something greater than myself. I want to excel. You inspire me in every act, every word, every glance. I look at you, and you’re like… like light made into flesh. I said it on Halloween and meant every word: you are the most beautiful creature I have ever seen walking this earth. And you don’t even know it. You have no clue how beautiful you are or how brightly you shine.” 

The Golden Lily by Richele Mead

Sometimes Adrian says the right thing. This is one of those times. When the last book of the series comes out on Tuesday I want to be caught up on how great the series is.


  1. Sigh....I love Adrian in these moments too! It just gets better from here!! Definitely think he's better to be with Sydney than Rose!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!
