Meme: Teaser Tuesday (Nov 17)

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!

"A bell is not a bell. While undeniably constructed out of metal and heralded for its ability to ring, it is actually a great deal more than that. It's the taste of barbecue, the feel of sunburned skin from playing outside all day, and the smell of chlorine from freshly cleaned pools. It's the promise of football games, sleepovers, and video-game tournaments, all without the interruption of homework. In short, the bell is the gatekeeper of summer."

pg. 1

"He must have taken a step closer, because suddenly our bodies were separated by nothing more than the shallow margin of air. "Your eyes, Nora. Those cold, pale gray eyes are surprisingly irresistible."

pg. 28

Yeah, I obviously cheated on the first teaser but I couldn't help myself. I loved the opening paragraph.

Feel free to leave a comment with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your 2 ‘teasers’ in a comment here!

Nice teasers! I read through the first one with much confusion, but then it made sense...
And the second one makes me want to pick up Hush, Hush RIGHT NOW. Great stuff!
