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!
"The moment our fingers meet, a spark flashes between us, so powerful I feel my heart stutter. We stand frozen as the first shock subsides into frothy, electrical pulses that travel between our palms and tickle my flesh like effervescent bubbles."--pg. 12 & 13, Born of Illusion
And a second one just because :-).
"I shuffle a single card through my fingers several times, pop it in the air, and catch it in the middle of the deck. Then I do a one-handed cut, a flip back, and then, for flourish, a long spring.
Some girl indeed."--pg. 180, Born of Illusion
What I really liked is how this book took me to another time and place. I haven't read a lot of YAs set in this time period (1920s New York), and of course, I'm a sucker for magic and romance :).
Hope everyone's having a great week,
