Teaser Tuesday: In the Shadow of Blackbirds, A Prayer for Owen Meany, The Eternity Cure, & Hopeless

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

"I lost my innocence on April sixth, 1917. And it had nothing to do with Gray's Anatomy."


"The day this country declared war against Germany," I reminded her. "The day spying on neighbors became patriotic and boys turned into rifle targets. That's enough to take the sweetness out of a girl."

~ In the Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters, Kindle Location 528-535 (ARC)

"You don't sound very well, Owen," I pointed out to him. "IF JESUS HAD TO BE BORN ON A DAY LIKE THIS, I DON'T THINK HE'D HAVE LASTED LONG ENOUGH TO BE CRUCIFIED," Owen said.

~ A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving, pg. 212

Every eye in the room turned as I stepped through the frame and, once settled on me, didn't glance away. Hard, dangerous, broken faces watched intently as I passed their tables, like feral dogs scenting blood.

~ The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa, pg. 1 (ARC)

My arms are still awkwardly at my sides, so I tentatively bring them up and wrap them around his waist. When I do this, I quietly gasp at the peacefulness that consumes me, being wrapped up in him like this. We both simultaneously pull each other closer and he kisses me on top of the head. It's not the kiss I was expecting, but I'm pretty sure I love it just as much.

~ Hopeless by Colleen Hoover, pg. 96 (eBook)
