Teaser Tuesdays #7


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! 

I have two teasers for you today.






I force myself to resist his smile, even as I admit to myself that I like him a little. I gesture to one of the guards and say, "Please escort the conde and his . . ." Herald? Assistant? ". . . and his man back to their rooms and make sure they have everything they need."

p. 108, The Crown of Embers (Fire and Thorns #2) by Rae Carson






 


"Keep those soldiers busy, yeah? Make them hate you."
"That's my specialty." I gesture up at the slanted roofs and crumbling walls towering around us. To a Runner, those roofs are like giant slides made smooth by ice. . .

p. 194, Prodigy (Legend #2) by Marie Lu






Both of these are second books in their series. Sometimes the second book can be disappointing. I'm hoping that won't be the case with these. :) Have you read the first book of either of these series? Are you planning on reading these?

    1. I really like how the two MC's are so different. I think they really complement each other.

  3. Two good teasers. I especially like the description in the second one - "giant slides made smooth by ice."
    My Teaser is from THE FORTUNE QUILT.

    1. I was just thinking that even with all the books I read, my tbr never shrinks because there are new books published every year and other books I add after reading someone's review.

    1. I know! That is how I feel. I almost need them to take a publishing break for a year so that I can catch up. :)
