Teaser Tuesday


It's impossible for me to make the connection between who I am now and who I was then--as if I died long ago in that town and resurrected somewhere else, with a brain full of another girl's memories.
Except that I miss my father.

From page 19 of When We Were Animals by Joshua Gaylord. (Click link for review)

Celaena reached a gloved hand into the sack and tossed the severed head toward him.  No one spoke as it bounced, a vulgar thudding of stiff and rotting flesh on marble.
From page 6 of Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas.
Even Harry, Ron, and Hermione had misgivings.  The hippogriffs were tossing their fierce heads and flexing their powerful wings; they didn't seem to like being tethered like this.

 From page 115 of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling.

As I looked down my nose at mindless consumerism, I had to stop and remind myself that I was participating in a glorified reality show--a show where contestants signed a contract, agreeing to kill each other for obscene piles of cash.  As far as entertainment goes, it doesn't get any more mindless.
From page 161 (location 2164 on Kindle) of Arena Mode by Blake Northcott. (Review goes up tomorrow--loved it!)

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

Happy Reading!


  1. Some great books on your shelves. The Maas books seem to improve as you go through the series. I love that teaser from When We Were Animals -- that book makes you think.

  2. Nice variety of teasers. My YA teaser this week comes from The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey. Happy reading!

  3. Whoa, love that teaser from Crown of Midnight! I read Throne of Glass not too long ago so I'm excited to continue on with the series. My teasers are here: http://bit.ly/1fGmVwP

  4. Really like the Harry Potter quote!
