Teaser Tuesday!

Hey Ya’ll! It is TEASER TUESDAY! That is right, it is time to grab your current read, flip it open, and give a sentence or two to “tease” the rest of us. This wonderful even is hosted by Should Be Reading.

Stolen by Lucy Christopher:

“I can’t save you like that, Ty. What you did to me wasn’t this brillant thing, like you think it was. You took me away from everything – my parents, my friends, my life. You took me to the sand and the heat, the dirt and isolation. And you expected me to love you…”

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins:

” Because that’s the thing about depression. When I feel it deeply, I don’t want to let it go. It becomes a comfort. I want to cloak myself under its heavy weight and breathe it into my lungs. I want to nurture it, grow it, cultivate it. It’s mine. I want to check out with it, drift asleep wrapped in its arms and not wake up for a long, long time.”

Have you got a teaser to share? If so, please leave a comment!

A dress for $24.99? Is that a payment plan $24.99 now and pay the rest later? How can an adult dress $24.99? Well, the dress does have boob cups and a very oddly placed flower.

-Where I Belong, pg. 138

“I laughed because – because -” The dam that kept my tears back sprang a leak. “Because he didn’t know what to call a pocket pencil sharpener.” I hid my eyes in my hands, letting the sobs come at will, regulating their own intensity and volume.

– Summer of My German Soldier, pg. 101

“Metal clicked against metal. A leather belt rushed through fabric loops. As the belt whipped backward, I saw…”

My teaser:

The there was the turning of their doorknob, and bits of Daddy began to slip through – first his hand, then his arm, then the word “Dinner” followed by his mouth, his nose, and finally his eyes, eyes that narrowed sharply when he saw his oldest daughter’s painted lips.

“Why, you little Jezebel!” He spit the word as if it were poison. Mary Sarah couldn’t take her eyes off his.”

Kissing Tennessee and Other Stories from the Stardust Dance by Kathi Appelt (pg. 21-22)

Catherine looked up, her eyes wide with fright. Theresa grabbed for her, but it was too late. The limb came crashing down. Catherine’s body crumbled like a rag doll’s, and she tumbled backward into the chasm.

The Book of Spells by Kate Brian (pg. 206)

My Teaser:

“Back in the classroom as Olana spouted he principles of Conversation Miri had just memorized, she let her mind wander, imagined marrying a prince who looked like Peder and lived in a palace of linder, and wondered if she would be, as Britta had said, really, really happy.” – Princess Academy by Shannon Hale (pg 109)

“Two words: food poisoning (but only as a last resort).” – Don’t Judge a Girl By Her Cover by Ally Carter (pg 132)

I am also currently listening to Banner of Heaven by Jon Krakauer. It is really good and I will review it in the next day or two.
