Teaser Tuesday

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
  • Share the title and author so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

  • Beautiful Creatures (Caster Chronicles #1) by Kami Garcia, Margaret Stohl


    There were no surprises in Gatlin County.
    We were pretty much the epicenter of the middle of nowhere.

    At least, that's what I thought.
    Turns out, I couldn't have been more wrong.
    There was a curse.
    There was a girl.
    And in the end, there was a grave.

    Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.

    Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.

    In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.

    My Teaser:

    From Audio Book:

    “So why did I think about her every second? Why was I so much happier the minute I saw her? I felt like maybe I knew the answer, but how could I be sure? I didn't know, and I didn't have any way to find out.
    Guys don't talk about stuff like that. We just lie under the pile of bricks.” 
    “Well? Is it true? Did she?"
    "Did she what?"
    "You know. Fall outta the crazy tree and hit every branch on the way down?” 
    “She looked up at me, and the whole world disappeared. Like there was just us, like there would always be just us, and we didn't need magic for that. It was sort of happy and sad, all at the same time. I couldn't be around her without feeling things, without feeling everything.” 


    1. I read th book before. It's got a good plot, but I couldn't get into te book. Nice teaser, though. Check out my TT at www.myviewpointonbooks.blgspot.com

      1. I know the story just feels like it was too slow, but I am listening to audio book and it is a lot better, because of the sound effects it makes it more interesting!(:
