Teaser Tuesday: Hard Bitten & Exposure

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of 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!    
    While waiting for her highness's arrival, I poked a straw into one of the drink boxes and pored through the stack of books that was beginning to crawl its way up my bedroom wall. It was my TBR - my To Be Read stack. The usual subjects were there. Chick lit. Action. A Pulitzer Prize winner. A romance novel about a pirate and a damsel in a low-cut blouse. (What? Even a vampire enjoys a little bodice ripping now and again.)
     ~ Hard Bitten (Chicagoland Vampires #4) By Chloe Neill, pg. 49, Kindle Location 794

    A wild fire starts small - from a dropped cigarette, someone burning leaves or trash, a single lick of lightning to a vulnerable tree - and then spreads in every opportune direction, eventually becoming so hot that nothing short of a torrent, man-made or otherwise, can put it out. To travel, it needs little more than favorable conditions and available fuel to feed on, and will grow without conscience, disregarding wildlife, structures, prayer.
     ~ Exposure by Therese Fowler, pg. 142


  1. @Carrie - I loved that quote. It is always nice to see myself in characters a bit. Merit's reading and snark are two things that make her one of my favorite characters of all time. :)

  2. Don't we all have TBR stacks that are creeping up the wall? :D

    Powerful second teaser!

    Thanks for coming by my blog.
