Teaser Tuesday: Meant to Be, The Sea of Tranquility, The Namesake, Impostor, & Undercurrent


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


I made a face. I have my own e-reader, but I hardly ever use it. I need to fold down pages and flag passages with sticky notes. I need to experience books, not just read them. I never go anywhere without a book in my bag, and to travel across the ocean, I'd packed more than my fair share.

~ Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill, Kindle Location 423




You lie. They aren't even a whisper. They drift into my consciousness so soft they almost have no form, as if they're made of air and longing, but I swear I hear them anyway. When I look up, the only person who could have said them is settling down on a stool next to Kevin Leonard and I kick myself for being ridiculous, because I know they can't be real, and that the longing those words were born from is mine.

~ The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay, pg. 78-79




Again he tastes the dust on his tongue, sees the twisted train, the giant overturned iron wheels. None of this was supposed to happen. But no, he had survived it. He was born twice in India, and then a third time, in America. Three lives by thirty.

The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri, pg. 21


Something changed on his face, like he'd lost the fight, and he leaned in as the popcorn bucket tumbled over, spilling its contents all over the floor of the car. Neither of us made any motion to pick it up. And suddenly there was no space left between us.

~ Impostor by Susanne Winnacker, pg. 185




My brother made an explosive noise like an angry bull. But then something came over him. "Cal, seriously," he said. "What's the point in living if you never feel alive? Do this, and you'll feel more alive than ever, I swear."

~ Undercurrent by Paul Blackwell, Kindle Location 828 (ARC)

  6. You've got five books on the go? Wow! I thought I was bad. LOL!

    I have Sea of Tranquility waiting to be read and plan to read Undercurrent as well. It was my Waiting on Wednesday pick not too long ago.

    Happy reading!
