Teaser Tuesday (37)

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!

I'm heading back to my Kobo to read a book, and this time I've chosen Paranormalcy by Kiersten White. Here's the teaser, from the first chapter:




The gremlin made straight for me, a rabid gleam in its eyes. It leaped into the air and I kicked out hard, sending it sailing down the hall, right into the arms of the containment worker chasing it. "Goal!" I shouted. Dang, I was good.




I'm just starting this, and yes I know I'm behind on the times! (Paranormalcy was originally published in August 2010.) I like this teaser because it gives you an image of who Evie is, even from the first few pages. She seems pretty funny and badass at the same time. I can't wait to continue reading this!

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

Don't feel bad, I haven't gotten to this one either! I am so behind on books that I always feel like the last person to read them lol. I will get to this one eventually though! Love the teaser :)
