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!
I press my fingers against my new badges. They all tell stories, each distinct and significant. One of them— the longest scar, the one that spans the length of my spine— is the first I ever earned. It tells the tale of a girl who had just lost her mother and nearly died when she went out into the world armed with iron. A girl who was later remade into a killer.
~ 13%, The Falconer by Elizabeth May
“You want to take out an entire contingent of Rowansmark trackers–“
“I don’t see why not.”
“–and then go after an army–“
“Don’t be an idiot. Not the whole army. Just the leader. Cut off the head and the rest of the body just sort of flops around uselessly.”
~p. 9, Deliverance by C. J. Redwine
