Teaser Tuesdays (Mar.13)

March 13, 2012

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!
 
My Teasers:

“Haven shuddered and rubbed the goose bumps that had sprouted on her arms. This world felt different, more dangerous, than the one she had left.”
~ pg.151, “The Eternal Onesby Kirsten Miller
