Teaser Tuesday: Return To Paradise

Teaser Tuesday is weekly meme hosted by Mizb at Should Be Reading.
The rules are simple:

-Grab your current read
-Open to a random page
-Share 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 Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This week's Teaser Tuesday is from Return To Paradise by Simone Elkeles. If you're a huge fan of Simone Elkeles like I am, you'll know this is the sequel to Leaving Paradise (which is FABULOUS!).

There are 2 quotes I'm going to share with you. Why? Because I couldn't pick one and stink at following the rules. I like to think of this as a win-win situation. No worries, neither are spoilery. Even if you haven't read Leaving Paradise, it's not going to ruin it.

Leaving Paradise and Return To Paradise alternate POVs between Maggie and Caleb. Both of these quotes are from Maggie's POV. Here we go:

Maggie Part 1

"This is unreal. I can't feel my toes because I'm in shock, and Caleb and this guy are going to get into a fight over...farting?"-Page 12

Maggie Part 2

"'Then prove it.'
I narrow my eyes at him and wonder what he's up to. 'How?'
'Kiss me, Maggie. Right here, right now.'"-
Page 36-37


  1. Oh, this second sentence sounds interesting! HAHAH. I definitely should have already bought Leaving Paradise when I had the chance. Fail!!!

  2. You should buy it now! And read it before September. Then buy Return To Paradise and read that!

    Game plan. Love it!

  3. I've heard good things about these books! Need to read them soon! Here's my TT.

  4. Like the fart one best... lol.. farts are funny.


  5. Great quotes. I've never heard of this book, so thanks for the recommendation!

  6. OhmyGod, OhmyGod that's so hilarious! Caleb is still so, well sexy:D

  7. LOL, I'm so childish. I still laugh at fart jokes. They're funny! :P

    @Tere- Ooooh. You must check out Leaving Paradise first. It's amazing!

    @Dwayne- *sigh* Caleb's brooding, sexy nature makes me giddy all over.

  8. I officially dub thee the Teaser Tuesday Queen. These are AWESOME!!!!!! I have Leaving Paradise here but haven't read it yet because I know I won't be able to wait for the sequel. So my genius plan is to wait until the sequel is out and then read them BOTH! haha! :D


I love, love, love comments, and therefore, love you! Thanks for dropping by!
