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!
“Like the ground to a falling man, it would come rushing up and hit him all at once–the place, the company, her words; one implication would lead to another and shatter him–but around that intake of breath the world hung silent and bright, so bright, and Akiva knew only this one thing, and held on to it and wanted to live inside of it and stay there forever.
Karou was alive.”
–Laini Taylor, Days of Blood and Starlight
(I know this sounds like a spoiler, but it’s not. You know before this that she is…This is just the moment Akiva finds out.)
