Teaser Tuesday (58)

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!

I have two teasers for you this week! The first comes from a book I just finished called Sovereign Hope, a self-published novel by debut author Frankie Rose:



He took a deep breath, looking up and down the street. He seemed to be attempting to pull himself together. "I want to do something I haven't done in a long, long time."

"Laugh? Take a bath? Tell the truth?"





This is just a simple taste of the relationship between Farley and Daniel. The witty comebacks and sarcastic comments really added a layer to this book. Watch for my review, coming soon! ;)

My second teaser comes from my current read, Dreamless, book 2 in the Starcrossed trilogy by Josephine Angelini:



"We don't hang out, or joke around, or share things with each other anymore. And if you EVER think you have the RIGHT to sit next to me again..."

Lucas reached down to grab Helen, but his father gripped his upper arms from behind - stopping him from hurting her. Then Helen saw Lucas do something she'd never once dreamed he'd do.

He spun around and hit his father.



Ahhhhhh that's all I can say. This book is crazy. I don't know what I expected when I picked it up, but definitely not this. Especially not the turn Helen and Lucas' relationship has taken...

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

Awesome, Interesting Teasers. For the first one those are 3 things you should do on a daily basis. For the second one, that series looks so awesome. I can't wait to read it and see what happens to cause that teaser. =]
