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 your book 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 and author too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers.
For this week's teaser, I am going to take a step outside of our usual parameters. With tomorrow being the Scottish holiday Burns Day, and BCM being part of the Burns Day festivities a long with a number of other blogs, and hosted by authors Jeri Smith-Ready (in honor of Zach, the hot Scot from her Shade series) and Cyndi Tefft (in honor of Aiden MacRae from Between), I am going to be taking teasers from the first two books in the Shade series: Shade and Shift. I will, however, do it the same way, picking a quote from a random page. I could post the most epic quote, but I wouldn't be able to narrow it down, plus, I don't want to get too spoilery.
This will be a nice introduction into the Shade series for those of you who haven't yet read it. And if you haven't, what are you waiting for? This series is amazing! Go out there now and get these books!
"Soon I heard the rap of hard-soled shoes above the kitchen's ceiling. The thought of facing real DMP agents made my knees shake. Gina had told me nightmare tales of people getting 'dumped,' detained for questioning. I didn't want to share one iota of what I knew--about myself, about my mom, about Zachary." Page 206
"Was every bit of Shift wierdness connected to that one fact? Like Zachary being the ultimate red with the anti-ghost powers of the Last? Or me being the ultimate violet with the pro-ghost powers of the First?" Page 285
