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!
This week, my teaser comes from Shiver. Okay, look. I know that you’ve probably already read this book, because everyone‘s already read this book, but too bad. I’m finally getting around to reading it, so it’s my teaser for this week! And since the story is told from two perspectives, that of Grace and Sam, I’ll give you a teaser from each.
From Shiver, by Maggie Stiefvater
She reached down and traced my eyebrows. “You do have really beautiful eyes.”
“We get to keep them,” I said.
Grace started at my voice. “What?”
“It’s the one thing we keep. Our eyes stay the same.” I unclenched my fists. “I was born with these eyes. I was born for this life.”
He stared at me for a minute longer, motionless, unblinking. And then, for the first time in six years, he closed his eyes. It went against every natural instinct a wolf should have possessed. A lifetime of an unblinking gaze, and now he was frozen in an almost-human grief, brilliant eyes closed, head ducked and tail lowered.
It was the saddest thing I had ever seen.
So, in case you don’t know anything about Shiver, Sam is a werewolf. The kind of werewolf who’s a normal boy in the warmer seasons but turns into a wolf in the winter. That should explain things, right?
This is one of my favourite books/series <3 I love the writing! Great idea sharing teasers for both characters as well :D
My teaser this week is from Shift by Em Bailey.
Have a great week!
Yes, the writing has been growing on me, the further I’ve gotten into the book. And how could I not share a teaser from both characters?! :)
I haven’t read any of the books in this series, but I am definitely curious. Great teasers!
Here’s MY TUESDAY MEMES POST
Oh, good, I’m not alone! It seems like almost everyone has read this series, so I figured it was about time I read it too. :)
I haven’t read this series yet! haha. But fantastic teasers, especially the first one, definitely piqued my interest!
Here’s my TT at Bookmunchies (:
Thanks! I liked the first quote, too, although I have to admit that I’m still a little unsure about the final two sentences of that quote. When I read them, I was wondering what it meant, really, because it seemed kind of… uncharacteristic for Sam and his situation/feelings. Hrm.
Great teasers. I have not read this series yet, though it’s been featured quite a bit for Teaser Tuesdays. In fact, Nash also teased from a book in the series today. My teaser: Murder by the Glass by Michele Scott
Hah, okay, judging by the comments on this post, I’m not as alone as I thought I was! It seemed like I was the only person left who hadn’t read this book/series.
I’ve read this series. The first two books are really good. The third wasn’t my favorite.
Hope you enjoy them!
That’s kinda how my sister felt about the series, too. She said that Shiver would have been fine as a standalone book, without the other two! Right now I’m actually considering just stopping with Shiver and not reading the other two. We’ll see.
