Teaser Tuesdays (62)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Teaser 1:

"Jill looked at me, face grim and eyes wide with fear. 'It's Adrian. You have to rescue him.'"

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead
p. 197

I was concerned that I wouldn't like this book because it featured Sydney as a main character but I shouldn't have worried. This spin-off of the Vampire Academy series is fantastic so far! I'm having trouble putting it down to do less important things like eating and sleeping...

Teaser 2:

"Long ago, I believed that, given a choice, people would turn to good as they would to the light. I believed that reporting-honest, unflinching pictures of the truth-could be a beacon to lead us to demand that wrongs be righted, injustices punished, and the weak and the innocent cared for. I must have believed, when I started out, that the shoulder of public opinion could be put up against the door of public indifference and would, when given the proper direction, shove it wide with the power of wanting to stand on the side of angels."

The Postmistress by Sarah Blake
p. 3

I'm still on the first chapter of this book (blame it on Bloodlines) but I like the writing style. I have heard that it takes awhile to get into the story so I am prepared to be patient. 


  1. My original comment seems to have been lost!
    Enjoying your teaser :)
    My teaser is from a smart, female hero book – The Steerswoman’s Road

  2. I can't wait to read Vampire Academy ... and then this!

  5. O I like them both but it's the second that left me wanting more.

  6. Like them both but as I just finished Bloodlines... NICE. I so love Adrian, even if he is a . . . ;)

  7. Oh, Bloodlines! I got my copy today, although I still have to read the pile of VA books waiting for me. I've heard awesome things about it, so I can't wait. :) My teaser can be found here!

  8. I read the first VA but need to read the rest so I'm holding off on Bloodlines until after that. But glad you're enjoying it!
    Great teasers!
