Tuesday Teasers: A Non-fiction and a YA


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should  Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought  I  would play for fun! 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can  add the book to their TBR  Lists  if they  like your teaser.   
Gerard's:
Instead, he took Mallory. With her daughter in his arms, he walked away, leaving her kneeling in the now-defunct daimon circle, hoping that she hadn't entered into a bargain worse than the one she was escaping.
From page 4 of Carnival of Souls by Melissa Marr. (YA) (See my review tomorrow)

Karen's:
"I was a slacker, too. If there's one thing I want to do this year, it's try to reach the kids who remind me of me and wake them up so they don't make the same mistakes I did."
From page 31 of I'd Like to Apologize To Every Teacher I Ever Had--My Year as a Rookie Teacher at Northeast High by Tony Danza. (Non-fiction)

Happy Reading!

  1. The first one sounds a bit gloomy and I hope it works out for her! And the second one is recognizable. If I ever become a teacher I hope I don't run into myself! Thanks for sharing :)
