Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can join. Here are the rules
(1) Grab your current read
(2) Open to a random page
(3) Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
(4) 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!
(5) Share the title & author, too, so that other other participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!

This week I am reading Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev and here's my teaser (from page 181):

" Are you ready for the finale?"

Bertie barely nodded before he led her in a series of turns that left her disoriented and dizzy. The stage lights whirled around them, every point of reference blurring into a shifting kaleidoscope of color. The world fell away until the only thing that remained was his hands on her. He dipped her back farther --

"Ariel." Bertie closed her eyes and let herself fall.

He caught her, and as the music reached a crescendo, he covered her mouth with his.


This is a very theatrical book, unlike anything else really. And so far, I'm really liking it. So what are you reading this week?

This looks so good. I've heard so many others say its really good. I'm reading Black Tattoo by Sam Enthoven. It's really good and I'm liking it so far. Who couldn't like flying sharks, a demon hell bent on the destruction of the universe, and a vomiting bat creature.
