Teaser Tuesday: 5 This Week!


You are not wearing underwear--like, any underwear of any kind--and you are out in public in your pajamas, and so is your kid, and by the way, you just gave her a snack from a container of oat puffs you found in the backseat of your mobile landfill of a car.

From page 95 of The Barter by Siobhan Adcock. 
I feel like I'm suffocating.  What about one day off-estate?

From page 8 of Hold Me Like a Breath by Tiffany Schmidt.

A monster rushed toward him, arms flung wide as if to grapple.  Caswell's heart lurched before his brain fully understood:  A male corpse was moving on the current of air that had just been sucked from the room.

From page 19 of Zero World by Jason M. Hough.
"It's a one-month trial.  If the work goes well, you'll stay through Labor Day and go to school there.  If it doesn't, you come back to a group home and school here."
 From page 12 of Ana of California by Andi Teran.

Many mothers imagine hurting their infants, even drowning them, burning them.  Understand this, if you don't understand anything else:  When mothers imagine hurting their children, their mind doesn't signal a wish.  It's the mind's mechanism visualizing the worst outcome so you can counteract.
 From page 174 of Remember Mia by Alexandra Burt (uncorrected proof copy--page may differ).  Very good debut novel!  We both liked it.  Click on link to see our reviews.

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!
