Teaser Tuesday

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!

“I doubt it” was the best I could do. His face was inches from mine. I was going to kiss him, and I was
going to regret it.
But at that moment, I couldn’t bring myself to care."

"You are aware that my math skills are even more lacking than my social skills?”
“Impossible.” Jamie’s mouth spread into a mocking grin.
“Thanks. Seriously, you must have better things to do with your life than waste it on the hopeless?”
“I’ve already learned Parseltongue. What else is there?”
“You’re like, a gen-u-wine nerd. Love it. Meet me at the picnic tables during lunch. Bring your brain, and
something for it to do,” he said as he walked away. “Oh, your flap’s open, by the way,” he called over his
“Excuse me?”
Jamie pointed at my messenger bag with a grin, then strolled to his next class. I closed my bag."

What about you? What are you reading right now?
