Teaser Tuesdays (1.1.2013)

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
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teasers:

” ‘So why’d you come here?’ Willa folds the paper carefully, taking her time.”

-Wake by Abria Mattina

This is the first meme I participated in and I would like to find more interesting and fun memes. I’m taking suggestions!
