Teaser Tuesday (5)

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, and author too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers

Kay-c's Teaser:

I couldn't speak for the longest time. "You're one of them?"
My lips went nump as I asked the question that seemed so unreal. Shock fell on me like heavy snow and I froze. Blood drained from my head as Ivar's ghastly face flashed across my mind. Will couldn't be anything like her. It's not possible. "I don't understand"

AngelFire by Courtney Allison Moulton

Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of SausagesLyn's Teaser:
Currently I'm reading protected Galley and to comply with publisher's request, I can't reveal what's in it until 2 weeks before they release the book. The book is written by Tom Holt and the title is Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Sausages. He's one of my favorite satire novelist and I did a quick visit to his website and found this funny quiz based on this J.W. Wells & Co series (which I like a lot though I haven't read all books in that series because it's so hard to find it in here T_T). So this is my result:
I answer if for fun and it said I'm not evil enough but I could work in post room. Lol!

Mithee's Teaser:

"Lochie, tell me we can stay together!" He reaches out for me and I crumple against him with a sob. Wrapping his arms around me, he holds me tight. "I’ll do everything," he whispers into my hair. "I give you my word. I’ll do everything I can, Maya. We’ll find a way to stay together. I’ll figure it out, I will. OK?"

"He is my soul mate, my fresh air, the reason I look forward to getting up every morning."

~Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma

That's two teasers for you from the same book! I have finished this book already, and oh my god. It was such a great, great, great read! The teaser might be a little common for two people forbiddenly in love, but what makes it really heartbreaking (and maybe disgusting for some) is where their story is coming from. Click the title to read the synopsis. You know you want to!

Here is my teaser from Lipstick in Afghanistan by Roberta Gately (Page 1):

"Do you hear it?" The voice was almost a whisper.

Elsa held her breath, and then she heard it too, a faint rustling of footsteps over twigs and leaves. Out of the corner of her eye, she glimpsed several shadowy figures darting through the trees, and when she turned, she saw a glint of sunlight reflecting off the barrel of an assault rifle.

There was no denying it—the Taliban had found them.

Oh, Jesus! she thought. We'll never escape.

Elsa knew the Taliban's ruthless hatred; the death and destruction they wrought was undeniable.

Seized by a sickening wave of fear, she wanted to cry or throw up, but there was no time. She tried to catch Parween's eye, but her friend was looking back, intent on finding the source of the sound.

"Run!" someone shouted, and suddenly, the chase was on.

I saw a review for Forbidden on someone's blog recently and added it to my TBR list immediately. It sounds so interesting, and heartbreaking, I can't wait to get the chance to read it!
