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!
Last week I started reading another MG book, but ended up not really liking it, so I stopped. I felt a little bored with reading and wondered if it might be a good time to take a little break. But then I dug back into Nicky's library and found Godless by Pete Hautman. I downloaded it quite a while ago, and couldn't even remember why, so I decided to give it a shot. It's a very fast read - I've finished it already! - and was really an exciting and fun story. My teaser comes from page 103:
"Grab my ankle, Henry!" Magda shouts, but she can't see how far he's slid. I watch, helpless, as Henry slowly slides over the horizon, his naked belly squeaking on metal.
After I finished Godless, I thumbed through the library again and found The Future of Us by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler. This is another one I downloaded a while ago, and decided it was time to read it. I'm so glad I did because so far it's really quite good! My teaser comes from page 161:
"Fair?" My voice rises. "You have a new family and you're trying to get rid of me by giving me gifts. Is that fair?"
Happy reading, everyone!
