Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm.

  • 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!

The very last short story in the Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy series and as the back cover says someone lives and someone dies. In true Cassie fashion it’s not unreasonable (in a way as there were signs and all that jazz) but it’s still a swift kick and double punch in the feels. There were also other aspects about this story that I liked seeing as for example how Magnus’ flat has changed due to a certain addition to the family. And Izzy, fierce, fabulous, lovable Izzy with her tender warrior heart. I’ll dearly miss having the TMI cast as main characters and will hunt for every morsel of information in the books to come. But at the same time I can hardly wait for the new characters to take over the scene and tell their story.
This short story collection was a perfect way to tie up a few loose ends and give a proper good bye to the characters. Now the wait for the new full book begins in earnest. Is it March yet?

While we all want the next book in a series sooner rather than later sometimes things get in the way. What is the longest you’d be willing to wait between books? 18 months? 2 years? Longer? Share your opinion and teasers in the comments.

It depends on the series. Some I'll wait as long as it takes. Others I lose track of. I enjoy the short character stories too. I like to keep in touch between books.
Here's my TT - http://fuonlyknew.com/2015/11/24/teaser-tuesdays-137-a-piece-of-you/

I have most of this series on my TBR mountain but haven't had a chance to read it yet. I know what you mean about wanting any tidbit of information about beloved characters. My YA teaser this week comes from Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine. Happy reading!

Doesn't matter how long. If I had it I would read it eventually...unless it's an ebook. It might get lost in my Kindle.LOL

Sounds good! And a good way to wrap things up. I haven't started the series yet. It's on my TBR, just not sure when I will get to it. My Teaser

Don't rush March, please. I am not ready to be a mother of a 5 year old. LOL

If a series doesn't have cliffhanger endings, I can wait (even if I don't want to) fa year or so for the next installment. If there is a cliffhanger ending--even a little one--I hate waiting. I will sometimes wait until the entire series/trilogy is out before beginning. Or at least the first two or three books.
