Teaser Tuesday (September 29th '09)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme, hosted by MizB of Should

Be Reading.

Anyone can play along, 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!
Here's mine:

"So you're not coming?"
"I want to, I really, really want to...but I can't."
"So everything we talked about was just a lie."
"No." says Ariana. "It was a dream. Reality got in the way, that's all. And running away doesn't solve anything."
"Running away is the only way to save my life," Connor hisses. "I'm about to be unwound, in case you forgot."
She gently touches his face. "I know." she says. "But I'm not."

I'm seriously considering putting this down. It's taking me FOREVER to get through because it's dragging really bad. I hate to do it, since I've gotten countless recommendations of it, but I might....I'll give it a few more days to get better....

  1. The book looks interesting, and I've considered picking it up. But I have a terrible time with books written in the present tense. They just don't flow for me.

    Great teaser, though!

  6. Yeah, it might just be that I'm ridiculously busy....

    JuJu: I'm 200 pages into it. I think it's 300, maybe 350 pages or around there.
