Teaser Tuesday (14)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme, hosted by MizB of Should be Reading. Just do the following:
Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
DO NOT INCLUDE SPOILERS (make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away, so that you don't ruin the book for others)
Share the title and author so that other participants can add the book to their TBR list is they like your teasers!

Just to warn you, I'm cheating for my Teaser Tuesday this week by sharing more than 2 sentences. Don't hate me! It's worth it!

I’m finally reading Maggie Stiefvater’s debut novel, Lament. I honestly don’t know why I waited so long, but I’m so happy I’m reading it now. I love her writing! Here’s my teaser this week:


I lay on the marble forever while the gravestones outside marked time, the moon’s shadow moving around them, lighting the other side of their worn surfaces and illuminating Christian names that hadn’t been used in decades. Cold crept through me, passing from the marble into my veins. Every moment that I lay on the cold stone, hoping and dreading that Luke would pull me from the ground, images of death flew through my head. No. Not just death. Murder.



Hehehe I hope that whet your appetite a bit. I am loving this book. Maggie’s writing is amazing, it just drags me in and doesn’t let me go. I was up until 2 AM on Sunday night reading because I didn’t want to put it down. Yes, I had class in the morning, but I just wanted to learn more and more about Luke and Deirdre!

Ok, I’m feeling generous. I want to give you another quick snippet to show you Maggie’s awesome writing. It’s a very different mood from the first:

I sighed. I wanted to take this moment, wrap it in paper, and give it to myself as a gift every time I felt crummy.

I just read this line last night and I love it. It’s such an obscure thought, but at the same time, it’s something that everyone would love to be able to do, once you think about it: Take a happy moment and wrap it up so you can cheer yourself up with that moment when you’re feeling down. Sigh. Love it.

Anyway, feel free to share your teasers with me! I’d love to see what you’re reading!

Make sure you check back next week. I'll be sharing a teaser from Amy Plum's debut novel, Die For Me.

  4. I am so undecided on this book. Sometimes I really want to read it, and other times I don't. I love Maggie's writing and Shiver is one of my favorite books. I'm glad you are enjoying the book so much!
