Teaser Tuesday-Katana and Shatter Me


I am really enjoying Katana by Cole Gibson.  Though a disconnect from reality is needed to make this work, it is a fun blend of action, romance, and suspense.  Perfect for fans of popcorn movies.

I saw one of my eyes-large, blue, and serene-reflected in the blade as it came toward my face. I wondered if everyone felt so at peace right before they died.  I closed my eyes and waited for…I wasn’t sure exactly.  I hoped it wouldn’t hurt.


I put a hold on Shatter Me by Tehereh Mafi at the library, and amazingly, a copy came in just a few days after.  This is a short loan book, so I have to read it quickly. The pressure!  I have heard that this is a book that you either love or you hate, so I am curious to see which camp I will fall into. Here are the first sentences.


I’ve been locked up for 264 days.

I have nothing but a small notebook and a broken pen and the numbers in my head to keep my company. 1 window. 4 walls. 144 square feet of space. 26 letters in an alphabet I haven’t spoken in 264 days of isolation.


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!
