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 Shades of Earth (Across the Universe #3). I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book after finishing A Million Suns, and I’m so glad I bought it! Once again, I’ll do a teaser from Amy and from Elder.
From Shades of Earth, by Beth Revis
“We made it,” I say.
“Yeah,” Elder replies, unable to keep the surprise from his voice. “We did…” His words are a breath of warmth at the back of my neck.
I turn around to meet his eyes, but my vision slides past him, to the door that leads to the hallway that leads to the cryo room.
“My parents,” I whisper.
I can finally have my parents back.
Godspeed. My whole life is…was on that ship. Everything. Every memory I have, every feeling I felt, every important thing about me came from within those battered steel walls.
And I’m abandoning it.
Okay, those teasers really shouldn’t be spoilerific, especially if you know anything about the premise of this series. (They’re on a ship, which is on a mission to Centauri-Earth, where they’re going to start a new colony. The ship is filled with the people who live there, maintaining it, as well as 100 scientists and military people who are cryogenically frozen and will be woken up once they reach their target. (Amy was originally frozen but got woken up prematurely.))
I still have to read book 2 in this series. It is on my TBR stack but I have a huge stack of review books to read first. Come and see my teasers for Hysteria by Megan Miranda and The Best Man by Kristan Higgins. Happy reading!
Well, whenever you get to it, I hope you love it! A Million Suns is what finally sold me on this series. :)
Interesting teasers. Not really into sci fi but this does sound good. Thanks for sharing.
Well, if you decide to read sci-fi — this series is pretty awesome! :)
Sounds very tempting! Hey, love your blog theme…Fishing? lol
Here’s MY TUESDAY MEMES
Hahaha, I know the theme is fishing, which I’m not too interested in, but I love the water and sea creatures, so it still feels appropriate. :D
This is one of the series that I’ve bought and just haven’t started, well I’ve bought the first book, it sounds really, really good. I might have to read it sooner rather than later :)
Yeah, it took me a while to get into it, but now it’s one of my favorite sci-fi series! :D
excellent teaser! thanks for sharing. it’s been on my TBR list for a while.
Check out my Teaser Tuesday, featuring Unbroken by Melody Grace
Glad you liked it! I hope you enjoy the series, whenever you get a chance to read it. :)
This series sounds awesome, I really need to get around to starting it… Too many books out there that I want to read, haha! Here’s my TT post!
Hehe, I know the feeling! If you get the chance to read this series, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! :)
I haven’t read ANY of these yet, the shame. Everyone raves about them though so when I do read them, I have no doubt I’ll love them too! Fun teaser!
Glad you liked the teaser! It’s just a shame, it feels impossible to keep up with ALL the books. :)
