Teaser Tuesdays (69)

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!


My teasers this week:

"Bethany probably didn't spend her nights hunting the preternatural, but I was beginning to suspect that she knew more than I'd given her credit for and that her sole exposure to the concept of chupacabra possession wasn't some Lifetime Original Movie called Three Days to Live." p.42

"'Do you feel like a knife-toting freak with a hero complex? Because no offense, but evidence would suggest that you probably should.'" p.48


Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Description from book:

Every other day, Kali D'Angelo is a normal sixteen-year-old girl. She goes to public high school. She attends pep rallies. She's human. 

And then every day in between . . .She's something else entirely. 

Though she still looks like herself, every twenty-four hours predatory instincts take over and Kali becomes a feared demon-hunter with the undeniable urge to hunt, trap, and kill zombies, hellhounds, and other supernatural creatures. Kali has no idea why she is the way she is, but she gives in to instinct anyway. Even though the government considers it environmental terrorism. 

When Kali notices a mark on the lower back of a popular girl at school, she knows instantly that the girl is marked for death by one of these creatures. Kali has twenty-four hours to save her and, unfortunately, she'll have to do it as a human. With the help of a few new friends, Kali takes a risk that her human body might not survive. . .and learns the secrets of her mysterious condition in the process.

I am a fan of Jennifer Lynn Barnes's Raised by Wolves and so far I am enjoying this one too. It has more snarky humor in it and kind of reminds me of Paranormalcy by Kiersten White.

  5. Okay, the first teaser I don't know what that is they are referring to so I like the second teaser better--at least I understand that one.
