Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading and it asks us to...


  • 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!
Here's my teaser this week:

If you're like me, you wake up seven minutes and forty-seven seconds before you best friend is supposed to be picking you up. You're too busy worrying about how many roses you are going to get on Cupid Day to do anything more than throw on your clothes, brush your teeth, and pray to God you left your makeup in the bottom of your messenger bag so you can do it in the car.

If you're like me, your last day starts like this:

Before I Fall - Lauren Oliver, pg 7 (Note this is an ARC, words, sentences subject to change)

That is a good hook! I've gotta read this now. Thanks for sharing.

Here's mine, opening chapter of The Legend of Wolfboy - published anonymously by an author in a contract dispute with a previous publisher. It begins publishing as it's written this week.

Reviewers can contact the site for a review copy before it's available publicly.

—————————————

Dusk was deepening toward another dark summer night and the chilly mountain air felt like frigid fingers running down their spines.

A near-full moon began to peak through the majestic mountain pines that dominate the western slope of the California Sierra Nevada mountain range, adding to what was already and eerie atmosphere.

“It was seven years ago today,” Ryan growled, his voice breaking the silence on this starless night, June 13, 1995. “The car radio said severe thunderstorms were threatening to hit the Sierras, but the Jacksons were set on going on their annual family vacation to Shaver Creek.”
