Teasers


Gerard's:

His eyes crinkled in a way that made me think he might be smiling beneath the bandanna, and I felt the blood drain from my head and my fingers, pooling in the core of my body, ready to fight or flee, whichever it had to be.
     He took a step forwards.
From page 5 of The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware.


But the only one who stands out from the staring, jabbering crowd of them isn't my own brother or the woman who's wrecking my parents' marriage.  It's a girl I don't even know, the largest girl here.
From page 84 of Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven.

Karen's:
I tell myself to give Mick a chance, give these girls a chance, give this day a chance, give myself a chance most of all.  The way I see it, I've lost my mom, eaten myself nearly to death, been cut out of my house while the whole country watched, endured exercise regimes and diets and the nation's disappointment, and I've received hate mail from total strangers.
 From page 24 of Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven.


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat. Anyone can play along, so I thought  I  would play for fun! Just pick two sentences from the book you are reading.  Happy Reading!
