Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Due to there being five wonderful stories compiled in this one novel you get five teasers!
Laurie Faria Stolarz's, Sleeping with the Spirit:
"Mom... is that you?"
No one answers.
I let out a sigh and get up and move towards the door. I try the knob, but it doesn't budge, like I've been locked inside.
Scott Westerfeld's, Stupid Perfect World:
"You've read Hamlet?" I said, perplexed. Could Kieran Black possess hidden depths? Sure, he'd just called the greatest character in literature "this psycho prince guy," but still.
Justine Larbalestier's, Thinner Than Water:
"I don't like it," I said, because it was as mild as I could be. Not the bakery, not this village, not this life. I wanted to be elsewhere. Learning, living, growing. Not covered in flour and making quaint to tourists.
Gabrielle Zevin's, Fan Fictions:
Many moons later, when she is replaying this conversation for the millionth or so time in her head, she will wonder how he knew her name without even asking. But right now, what she thinks is, It can be lonely being any kid in school.
and last but not least Malissa Marr's, Love Struck:
When she walked far enough away that the bonfire was a glow in the distance and the roll of waves was all she could hear, the knot of tension in her neck loosened. She had gone the opposite direction of danger. and she stood in one of the spots where she felt safest, mast at peace- the exposed reef.
Hope you enjoy!
