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!
“Thank you, Mr. Bennet! I am supremely gratified that my darling fiancee has agreed to become my permanent life partner,” Ricky said so gleefully that little flecks of mashed potato ended up in his George Lucas beard. (The definition of a George Lucas beard being a beard grown to indicate a maturity that one’s boyish features or a naive aspect might otherwise belie. See also: lack of chin.)
~ p. 129, The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet by Bernie Su & Kate Rorick
“So it won’t bother you if I find someone else?”
His jaw clenched, and I saw the muscle move before he got it under control. “I thought you said you’d fight for me.”
“And you said it’s too late.” I offered him a faint smile along with his watch. “So it’s a good thing I don’t intend to listen to you.”
~p. 10, Horde by Ann Aguirre
I was running blind and hoping that the journey ended with Fade beside me.
When next I woke, the world was a blur of snarls and yellow fangs.
