Teaser Tuesday (#19)


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: Tigers Curse by Colleen Houck 

1) " Those eyes, they were mesmerizing. They stared right into me, almost as if the tiger was examining my soul."


2) "I wish you were free. "

Jessica's Teaser Tuesday:  The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter

1) "Henry approached me, bowing his head in greeting. "Kate." His soothing voice did nothing to calm me. "You look beautiful." "Th-thanks," I stuttered, attempting to curtsy. It didn't work too well. "I see they didn't make you wear a dress." Henry chuckled. "Even if they had, I wouldn't have looked nearly as lovely as you do." " 


2) " "Like Zeus and stuff?" said Ava from her spot on my bed. "The lightening bolt guy?" I could practically see the smoke start to pour out of Ella's ears. "Are you crazy or just incredibly stupid?" Ava sniffed. "Neither thank you. Calliope? Is this the lightening bolt guy?" "Yes, that's him," said Calliope from an armchair, where she'd collapsed at the news. "That's Henry's brother" "

I put The Goddess Test down after hundred pages or so. Just couldn’t continue reading. It was torturing me and not intriguing me. Also Henry seemed like a pedophile.

OMG Braiden! That made me laugh so hard! Lol. I actually loved The Goddess Test but not all books are for everyone :(

Oh Braiden. Lol. I'm liking it. I really love Greek Mythology and anything influenced by it, so this book is pretty much up my street. Besides, Henry is gorgeous! *sigh*

Oh, I loved The Goddess Test! :D Those quotes are fantastic. :)

And I haven't heard much about Tiger's Curse yet, but it sounds intriguing... might have to keep that one in mind.

Thanks for sharing the teasers!
