Teaser Tuesday (June 12th)

teaser-tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme, hosted by MizB of Books And A Beat. Anyone can play along, just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two “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!

I haven’t taken part in this for a while, but I thought I’d get involved again today. I’m teasing from an ARC of The Last One by Alexandra Oliva which, according to Netgalley is “the thriller that’s gripping the nation”. And, so far, it’s pretty good! It’s released today, and you can click on the cover to read more about this title on Goodreads.

The sudden absence of sound strikes Cheerleader Boy like a blow.

“Please,” he says, and the first of his tears fall.

Here’s mine for this week from an advanced copy of a book I just started today which has been tipped for big things this summer. The teaser is taken from very early on, as I didn’t want to spoil things for myself!

These long-haired girls seemed to glide above all that was happening around them, tragic and separate. Like royalty in exile

I can’t believe I haven’t posted anything in ten days! I’ve been seriously slacking on the blogging lately, but I was lucky enough to get approved for an advanced copy of Joe Hill’s new novel The Fireman last week. I’m about a quarter of the way through and so far this book is amazing (although very long). It’s quite a dark story, but I’ve picked a more lighthearted for my teaser.

Jasmine turned sideways to glance at me and gave me a smile as if she didn’t fear what was coming. I will always remember that smile, how her eyes knew no fear, and for years to come I would wonder if I could ever have the courage she had.

Here’s mine for this week. This crime thriller has received a lot of hype since its release in January, and I am loving it so far!

Snow was seeping into his already-wet trainers and despite his jacket, the cold was spreading around his ribs. He was ashamed to realised that he actually felt scared. He needed to find his way out of here.

Here’s mine for this week! I only started this briefly on my commute home today and so I’m very early on in this book, so I’ve gone for an early teaser so as not to spoil anything for myself!

 Above all this, in her best longhand, Callie wrote: We Love You, Charlie Freeman.

Too generous, too sweet, so openhearted and earnest it stung like the bite of a fly. I curled my lip, turned away, watched the trees rush by instead.

He drew King Maxim’s letter from his pocket and offered it to her, but when she reached to take it, her hand slid past the paper and closed around his wrist. He pulled back on instinct, but her hand only tightened.

 This, Fiona decided as her taxi halted in heavy traffic on Waterloo bridge, was either about a woman on the edge of a crack-up making a sentimental error of professional judgement, or it was about a boy being delivered from or into the beliefs of his sect by the intimate intervention of the secular court. She didn’t believe it could be both.

It’s too hot in here and it’s too cold out there and it smells like burritos and blow jobs, middle-of-the-night New York. I love you is all I want to say so I scratch my head. “Hard to pick one, ya know?”

 The holiday my father had promised wasn’t a holiday. There were no beaches or sandcastles, no ice creams, no donkey rides; my father said we would rest when we got to die Hütte.
