"Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars, points of light and reason. ...And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason, for anything."

Tuesday Teaser (7)

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!

Considering I have three books started, I have quite a variety of teasers this week.

Teaser #1

People are constantly telling me I'm beautiful. I used to see it, especially when I was dressed up, going out somewhere. Sometimes, I still do, but mostly I avoid looking into mirrors (pg 172).

~Tangled by Carolyn Mackler --- Loving this book!

Teaser#2

Mary Ann didn't laugh at him. Didn't tell him he had an overactive imagination and walk away. She gulped and nodded (pg 208).
~Intertwined: Gena Showalter --- This one is due back at the library tomorrow. I can't put it down so hopefully I'll be able to finish it fast!

Teaser #3

These days, I have all the time in the world to sit there and pick at every revolting morsel that Joan puts in front of me. Because I've stopped taking the school bus. Joan and Cynthia have decided that I'm too "traumatized" to ride the bus (pg 157).
~Touch: Francine Prose --- This book has good bones, but I'm not liking the execution.

So those are my Tuesday Teasers...what are yours?

They are all great teasers! Will have to check out the top two.
HERE is my teaser for this week.

I can totally relate to teaser # 1. # 2 makes me quite curious to know what he said to her that was true enough for her not to laugh, and #3 makes me wonder how she has been traumatized.

All really great teasers.

All three are fun teasers. I have two this week at The Crowded Leaf.
