Teaser Tuesday

I wanted to start this post tonight by letting you all know that we are currently hosting a giveaway of Susan Higginbotham's book, The Traitor's Wife, which has just been rereleased by Sourcebooks. Head over to Historical Tapestry for details on how to win.

Now, on to Teaser Tuesday.


Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should be Reading:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!
I thought I would share two teasers this week, both from YA books that I am reading at the moment. I generally try not to read two books from the same genre at the same time, but it has just worked out that way this time. Luckily they are sufficiently different for there not to be any confusion.

The first teaser comes from page 297 of Marked by P C Cast and Kristin Cast:

No, they managed to trick me and tired their best to freak me out. But why? Wait! I knew what they'd been up to.





The second comes from page 137 of Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon. Isn't this cover just gorgeous?

The trio walked in wide circles, among the trees and along the path, calling Feng's name, but to no avail. Li Rong's shoulders sagged, his usual jaunty manner gone.
