Teaser Tuesday: 10/4/11

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!
    Yara's Teaser:

    No convincing these dudes that they had the wrong foursome. 
    No way through but through...
    "Evangelia..." Luca said.
    But she was already down on one knee, taking down to knights with two rapid strokes across her bow.

    Tammy's Teaser: 

    And yet...and yet...with our hands grasping the other's wrists, his legs pushing against the stone ledge, he pulled with all his strength-and then something more still-and lifted me up and over the roof's edge. I collapsed on top of my twin brother. I was shaking and crying and laughing all at once. 

    "You fool," he gasped. "You great fool. You almost died."
    (Victor and Konrad Frankenstein)

    Jenny's Teaser:

    Pen would not use the work Summoned when she told Jaime about the e-mail later that night. Additionally, she would not say that the e-mail dropped like a bowling ball into the pit of her stomach, and at the same time fell over her like a shinning wave, sending arcs of sea spray up to flash in the sun, even though that is precisely how it felt.

    Ana's Teaser:

    I was sitting at the edge of the clearing, trying not to stare at the body on the ground in front of me, Dad has said we'd be done before dark, but it had been hours since the sun had gone down and he was still only waist deep in the hole, throwing shovels full of dirt over the shoulder.
