Teaser Tuesday #14

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading and here's how you play..

Grab your current read and open to a random page. Share a couple of “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 and author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teaser.

*Click on the post title to find my teaser for the week*


This week's teaser comes from Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma. It's the quote at the very beginning and although it's only one line, my gosh it sets up the mood to the rest of the book PERFECTLY.





"You can close your eyes to the things you do not want to see, but you cannot close your heart to the things you do not want to feel."








Bonus - More NaNo Teasers


"Confusion hit me so hard that I almost missed the connection. My stomach quit churning as it fell into my feet and my head began to spin. The world became really small and I felt myself gasping for air as a wave of panic washed over me. Everything hung on the answer to my next question." pg 96


"The shocks kept coming as I checked the time and saw that an hour had past. Those sixty minutes had totally changed the way I  now saw the world and as I looked around, trying to decide where I was going to go, everything took on a more sinister tone. If everything my grandmother just told me was true, there really wasn’t any place left for me to be safe because everywhere I chose to turn now had the power to destroy me." pg 117


"Once again I had underestimated his cunning because I never heard him coming. Abruptly I was pulled back into a hard chest and carried back through the books. To stop me from squealing in surprise, Quinn had put his hand over my mouth and he continued to keep it there."  pg 129

Once I say the barbed heart on the cover, I was interested in this book. I do judge a book by its cover. Reading this tiny bit of a teaser, makes me want to read this book. I'll have to add it to my wish list. Looks like I'll be adding a lot more books to that list!
