Teaser Tuesday (#17)

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

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

1) Grab your current read
2) Open to a random page
3) Share one (1) OR 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!)
4) Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers! 

Donna's Teaser Tuesday: Tris and Izzie by Mette Ivie Harrison 

1) " I do believe you. Now that I have met you, I see the truth in your eyes. You are full of power and honour. This is what I meant when I said we are the same, you and I. We belong to the world of magic. We must return to Curvenal and  fulfill our destinies."

2) " In that moment he was amazingly handsome and powerful and brave. I loved him so much-almost enough to go with him. But not quiet "

Jessica's Teaser Tuesday:  The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa

1)  "My name is Ashallyn'darkmyr Tallyn, third son of the Unseelie Court...Let it be known--from this day forth, I vow to protect Meghan Chase, daughter of the Summer King, with my sword, my honor, and my life. Her desires are mine. Her wishes are mine. Should even the world stand against her, my blade will be at her side. And should it fail to protect her, let my own existence be forfeit. This I swear, on my honor, my True Name, and my life. From this day on..." His voice went even softer, but I still heard it as though he whispered it into my ear. "I am yours." 

2) "Good idea,” Puck echoed from the back of the cave. “Why don’t you take first watch, prince? You could actually be doing something that doesn't make me want to gouge my eyes out with a spork.” 

Ash’s lips curled in a smirk. “I would think you’re better suited to the task, Goodfellow,” he said without turning around. “After all, that’s what you’re best at isn’t it? Watching?”

“Oh, keep it up, ice-boy. You’re gonna have to sleep sometime."

I love that first teaser from The Iron Queen - when I read that part in the book I think I honestly squealed a little bit :P. Loving the Tris & Izzie ones too - have it on my tbr list and can't wait to get started!

I love the teasers for the Iron Queen, I need to finally get around to reading that series. Grr. I have so many read for reviews, I need to stop taking the self-pubb'ed reviews. But, some of them are really good and I'm afraid if I tell them no, I can't accept them that they will stop asking me to review books all together. I have no idea what to do in that type of situation.

Happy Reading! ;)
