Teaser Tuesday: The Brokenhearted, Resist, A House in the Sky, The Iron Traitor, & Finding It


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


Here's the choreography: school, ballet, homework, sleep. Repeat the steps until you turn eighteen, keep perfect time, twirl like the ballerina in a jewelry box, and someday it will all pay off. Keep the routine, and the routine will keep you safe.

I untie the rope tethering the boat to the dock. "No!" the girl pleads. "Wait!" She's hunched over holding her belly. She pushes her hair out of her eyes and struggles to stand up. I begin to row. It's harder than it looks; the current on the river is strong. "I need the air tank," she says. She's already wearing one, so I keep rowing. Is she mad? Who wouldn't need the air tank?

I used to joke with Jamie that my childhood seemed tailor-made for The Jerry Springer Show - not just an episode, more like a whole season. My mom had a thing for bad men. My dad was one of the few openly gay people in town. My grandparents prayed fervently to Jesus, speaking in tongues when the occasion called for it. My brothers struggled with drugs. I, too, had issues.

Don't stop. Don't ever leave. Stay with me, Kenzie. The Nevernever, the Between, or the real world, I don't want to face anything without you. 

I snorted quietly to myself. Man, I was going soft. Next thing you knew, I'd be writing song lyrics and spouting poetry.

~ The Iron Traitor (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten #2) by Julie Kagawa, pg. 290 (ARC)




For a while I got to be blank. A brand-new canvas. Untouched snow. I'd checked my baggage at the door, and just was. And it was perfect. There was no room for unhappiness when squeezed between two sets of washboard abs.
