Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read and 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!
*****
This week I am reading The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater, which is a supernatural story about a girl named Blue and her family of clairvoyants who can speak to the dead-- I only just started this one today, but already I am super intrigued and the writing is awesome!  Here is my teaser from this book:




"Neeve glanced over her shoulder, either because there were more spirits coming or because they're weren't-- Blue couldn't tell. By the time she looked back, Gansey had vanished entirely. Already Blue felt warmth returning to her skin, but something behind her lungs felt icy  A dangerous, sucking sadness seemed to be opening up inside her: grief or regret.

'There are only two reasons a non-seer would see a spirit on St. Mark's Eve, Blue. Either you're his true love,' Neeve said, 'or you killed him.'"




What are you guys reading this week?! Leave me your links in the comments below!

  10. This is a fantastic teaser! I have this one on my TBR shelf and hope to get to it soon. I LOVE the part you chose to tease to us though, it definitely makes me want to pick it up sooner. Those two reasons she could be seeing a spirit are very different. Thank you so much for stopping by my TT. New GFC Follower :D Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.
