Teaser Tuesday 4.6.10

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading and it asks us to...
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share a couple of “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 Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!
Vanessa's Teaser:
"Maybe you know someone as your little sister's friend." He says, "And then maybe something shifts. Maybe one day you hear them say something unexpected. Or hear the way they laugh and then suddenly you see them all over again. Like this time it's different."

~ p. 17 from "The Dead-Tossed Waves" by Carrie Ryan


Isalys's Teaser:
I had two teasers I really liked and I couldn't decide which to go with, so here's both :)
1- "And just for a moment, I forgot the bomb, and the police, and the fact that I was in a stolen car with a guy whose pockets were full of dodgy money. It seemed like, after waiting fifteen years, my life had finally begun. I was in a real-life adventure, and I was enjoying the ride." ~ p. 91

2- "But perhaps the number were a two-edged sword. What if I didn't just have a hand in causing death - what if I could save lives, too? And if I saved Spider today, could I save him on the fifteenth?"

~ p. 124 from "Numbers (Numbers #1)" by Rachel Ward

  9. Wow - all of these teasers are great! And they make me want to read both books (which is the purpose, eh?)! Is the first one a bit of a spoiler, by any chance? I like it, but I can't help thinking that it's pretty pivotal. But then, I haven't read the book myself... :) Nice choices!
