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!
“’You should feel akasha now. Tap into it. Picture what you want in your mind.’
I wanted a taco, but I doubted akasha could serve me up some Taco Bell. Gods, I’d do some terrible things for Taco Bell right about now.”
~ p. 91, Deity by Jennifer L. Armentrout
“’It’s my MHT tree.‘
‘MHT tree?’ I questioned.
‘Mortal Holiday Tree,’ Deacon explained, and smiled. ‘It covers the three major holidays. During Thanksgiving it gets a brown bulb, a green one for Christmas, and a red one for Valentine’s Day.'”
~ p. 191, Deity by Jennifer L. Armentrout
“‘What should I do?’ Lucas was completely lost. ‘It’s like water running downhill. She just flows toward me. And I can’t push her away.’
‘Then build a dam.’ Castor sighed and sat down across from Lucas, rubbing plaster from his face with his hands. He looked smaller. Like he had just lost this fight, even though he’d won, taking everything from Lucas. ‘You have to be the one to stop this. No confiding in each other, no flirting at school, and no quiet talks in dark hallways. You have to make her hate you, son.'”

“He’s wearing jeans and a white Lacoste shirt, and he looks like he got up from a nap, ran a hand through his hair and pronounced it fine. And that’s the thing – it is fine. This the most unfair and strangely subtle characteristic he possesses: the more blasé he is about his appearance, the more beautiful he gets.”
~ ch. 27, Between the Lines by Tammara Webber
