Teaser Tuesday (8)


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!

    So this weekend I have pretty much been DEVOURING Rumors by Anna Godbersen-- she is undoubtedly one of my favorite YA authors! Rumors is the second book in The Luxe series. Made up of 4 books, the series centers around the lives of 4 different young women, growing up in New York City at the end of the 19th century. It's full of scandal and intrigue, and the writing is absolutely amazing! Since Penelope Hayes is the character on the cover of Rumors, my teaser for this week is taken from her perspective:

    "Penelope sensed that he had more compliments at the ready, but she signaled their superfluity with her hand. What did it matter anyway that she was so much lovelier than the other girls when Henry was so blind? The wretched tick of her heart was unbearable in her ears, but she could not fidget and she could not frown. She was realizing for the first time in her life what agony it was to experience such unquiet beneath an impeccable veneer."

    Oh my God, I love how AG writes! It's like music, it flows so perfectly... These are some of the best books I've read in a long time, and I'm glad I still have 2 more to look forward to :)

    What is everyone else reading this week??
