Share the title and author so that other participants can add the book to their TBR list is they like your teasers!

My teaser this week comes from the second book from author Lauren Kate, Torment! It’s really a great sequel and I’m really, really enjoying it! Here’s my teaser:

Luce was certain Cam was not supposed to know that she was out here in California. Keeping her away from guys like him was the whole point of her relocation. Now she’d blown that.

Torment is the sequel to Fallen (see my review here), about angels, Luce, Daniel, and their cursed love. I honestly think this is a great sequel and that Lauren Kate’s writing is unbelievable. The story is a little bit slow because Luce has to find answers for herself, which isn’t that easy, but it works with the plot-line. I’m really enjoying all the new characters: Shelby, Dawn, Jasmine, Miles, Stephen, Francesca. I really think Miles is such a sweet guy, I hope he doesn’t turn out to be on the wrong side of the playing field (because of course one of Luce’s friends will end up being there). I’m just over halfway through and hope to finish it very soon so I can write a review and let you all know about it!

Feel free to share links to your teasers! I’d love to see what you’re reading.


  1. I remember that part. :D Enjoy reading the rest. I posted up review on this in my blog! Btw, I like your blog. I'll be following . :D

  2. Haven't read Fallen yet but the cover is gorgeous for Torment. Great teaser!

  3. I have been dying to read this series. This teaser was just the push I needed.

  4. Here is my teaser from Nature's Secret Messages: Hidden in Plain Sight by Elaine Wilkes (Page 3):

    "We lie in the lap of immense intelligence." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Stop. Look. Listen. My kindergarten teacher taught me that. I remember carefully lining up the tips of my patent-leather shoes exactly at the edge of the curb and stopping–then carefully looking to my right and left, quiet and aware, listening for any clues. Feeling that it was safe to proceed, I'd grasp my classmate's hand, jump off the curb, and happily venture into unknown territories on the other side of the street.

    Now I barely glance from side to side as I hurry on my way.

    What happened? Where did that wide-open feeling of awareness go? In the rush of adulthood, it seems to vanish, but what would happen if we simply stopped, looked and listened…even as busy adults?

    As a learning addict, I've hunted for insights through countless books, seminars, experts, masters and more. Eventually, I realized that my kindergarten teacher had it right from the beginning, long before I started my quest. Who knew that she was so profound?
