Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Here’s the rules:
- Get the book you’re currently reading
- Open it to any random page
- Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page (Be courteous of your readers
- 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!
This week’s teaser is: Evernight by Claudia Gray. This is one novel that’s currently sitting on my shelf, patiently waiting for me to get to it.
“So, Cary Grant,” Lucas began, shaking red pepper flakes onto his slice. “That’s pretty much your dream guy, huh?”
“He’s sort of the king of dream guys, isn’t he? I’ve had a crush on him ever since I first saw Holiday when I was about five or six”
From page 173:
My parents had told me they were vampires as soon as I was old enough to understand about keeping secrets, so that was as ordinary to me as the fact that Mom’s hair was the color caramel or that Dad liked to snap his fingers to jazz from the 1950s. They drank blood at the dinner table instead of eating food, and they liked to reminisce about sailing ships and spinning wheels and, in Dad’s case, the time he saw William Shakespeare acting in one of his own plays. But those were little things, more funny and endearing than frightening. I’d never though of them as unnatural.
As soon as we began our pursuit, I realized how little I truly knew them.
