Tunes & Teaser Tuesday: BEAUTIFUL CREATURES by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl

 
Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading. Here are the rules:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open it to a random page
  • Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO REVEAL SPOILERS! (Be sure not to spoil the book for others!
  • Make sure your sentences don't reveal something important!)
  • Include the title and author to, so that other participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!
 
Full disclosure: I saw the movie first--which I really enjoyed btw :-).

Teaser:

"But all I could see was a beautiful girl in a long gray dress, under a white track jacket with the word Munich sewn on it, and beat-up black Converse peeking out underneath.  A girl who wore a long silver chain around her neck, with tons of stuff dangling from it--a plastic ring from a bubblegum machine, a safety pin, and a bunch of other junk I was too far away to see.  A girl who looked like she didn't belong in Gatlin.  I couldn't take my eyes off her."--pg. 32, Beautiful Creatures

Almost finished with the book, and I think it's a really great example of YA written from the male POV.  Also, I love how we get a clear picture of Lena--and how Ethan can't take his eyes off her.  And as my TUNE IN TUESDAY pick (hosted over at Kate's Tales of Books and Bands), I chose "Best Day of My Life" by American Authors b/c it's such a happy, feel good song :-).  Enjoy!

Have a great one!
