I recently read Everything I Was by Corinne Demas, and I was charmed by this book. The protagonist is doing her best to cope with her family’s financial hardships, and to make sense of it as well.
“Meg laughed, and I laughed. And although it wasn’t very funny, we kept laughing and when either of us stopped, the other’s laughter started us up again. I don’t know what we were laughing about, really, but for us it was the way we became friends, laughing that way, laughing about nothing.”
I just started reading Malinda Lo’s follow up to the wonderful Ash. Huntress has an awesome cover, and it takes place centuries before the events in Ash. I have high hopes for this one!
Here is the first sentence: “She saw a beach made of ice, and she felt her heart breaking.”
Doesn’t the cover rock??
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!
