Teaser Tuesday (53)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme, hosted by MizB of Should be Reading.
Here's what you do:
Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two sentences from somewhere on that page
Share the title and author
Try not to include spoilers!

This week, I'm reading Tahereh Mafi's debut novel, Shatter Me, and I'm loving it. Here's a teaser for you:




I close my eyes and focus on breathing. "You can talk to me. Just don't touch me."

7 seconds of silence join the conversation. "Maybe I want to touch you."

There are 15,000 feelings of disbelief hole-punched in my heart. I'm tempted by recklessness, aching aching aching, desperate forever for what I can never have.



There's just something about this part that really caught my attention. Maybe it's just the feeling of shattering I felt for Juliette when Adam said this to her. I'm loving this book. It's constantly pulling on my heart strings, making it hurt. It's fabulous.

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