Teaser Tuesday #9

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


My Teaser:

"I slide my arms around his neck,
pull my head back so I can plunge
into the aqua deep of his eyes.
There's something swimming there,
in the dark pools of his pupils.

Something disquieting."

~Fallout by Ellen Hopkins



That was a hard one to do. It's not easy to pick out two sentences. I felt it necessary to add that last one in.

  1. That sounds so lyrical...is this one written in verse style, too?

  2. Great teaser - well done.
    I agree that it's difficult to choose two sentences only. Context is always so important and sometimes the teaser seems disconnected - I try to pick ones that are intriguing despite the lack of context.

  7. Oooo! The pool of his eyes thing could have gone so dorky but that was awesome. I'll have to check this one out. Great choice for a teaser.

  8. Thanks everyone! For some reason, my response from yesterday isn't here anymore... internet must have crashed when I posted it, oh well. The book is written in verse. :) And yes! Ominous is the perfect word for it.
