Teaser Tuesday: The Turning, Dash and Lily's Book of Dares, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, & Night of the Purple Moon

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

"One never knows," said the blind man. "What young people read these days. Anyway, sometime in the twenties, I believe, one of the Crackstone girls wanted to marry a local boy, and the family objected, and they eloped in a rowboat. Unfortunately, a storm came up, and swept them out to sea..."

His wife said, "They were never found."

~ The Turning by Francine Prose, pg. 17

Be careful what you're doing, because no one is ever who you want them to be. And the less you really know them, the more likely you are to confuse them with the girl or boy in your head.

~ Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan, pg. 131

Noah moved impossibly closer, just inches away. A few freckles disappeared into the scruff on his jaw. "I'll be gentle," Noah added. My breath caught in my throat as he looked at me from beneath those lashes, ruining me. I narrowed my eyes at him. "You're evil." In response, Noah smiled, and raised his finger to gently tap the tip of my nose. "And you're mine," he said, then walked away.

~ The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin, pg. 175

"We should hunt for survivors," she said, "especially the kids who can't take care of themselves." Jordan nodded for her to continue. "You know where they live. We can split up. Are you ready?"

~ Night of the Purple Moon by Scott Cramer, Kindle Location 1059


  1. These books look great! The Turning sounds sad, Dash and Lily's Book of Dares sounds like What's Left of Me by Kat Zhang with the 2 souls in one body, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is intriguing, and Night of the Purple Moon looks eventful.
    Check out my TT @ This Is How It's Supposed To Be

    1. Dash & Lily is a long way off from What's Left of Me... although I can see why the teaser would maybe make you think of that... it was actually talking about a person's idea of the perfect boy/girlfriend and how we often project that on to someone without knowing them. I kind of liked what D&L had to say about that.

  2. Okay, that Noah teaser had my heart beating fast. *_* Awesome teasers, all of them!

  3. Thanks for stopping by the Nest everyone! I can vouch for The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer...it is ALL kinds of AWESOME...and so is Noah! I'll be highly recommending this one! Review coming soon!

  4. Oh wow!! So many great teasers, and most are from ones on my TBR list! Will have to bump them up now....
