Teaser Tuesday, Young Adult / September 4, 2012

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  1. Grab your current read
  2. Open to a random page
  3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page, being careful not to INCLUDE SPOILERS!
  4. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser this week is:

Defiance by CJ Redwine

I look around for a scarf or some other piece of cloth to cover her up, but all I have is a scrap of a kitchen towel, and I already know she’ll never agree to it.

Which settles it. I’ll have to stand in front of her the entire time.

The deep blue of her dress brings out the blue in her eyes, and the diamonds sewn into the bodice sparkle in the light.

Which draws the eye straight to her breasts.

She’s wearing the dish towel. I don’t care what she says.

by C.J. Redwine

I had so much trouble picking just one teaser as I could live in Logan’s mind forever. This is one of my favourite exchanges where he shows his charming ineptness with women, coupled with his conservative sensibilies and is one of the many attributes that makes him so lovable. The whole chapter really just made me smile from ear to ear and I’m thankful for this new trend in YA books where the narrator alternates between the male and female protagonist, because without it this wouldn’t exist. Thank you, C.J., for creating such an amazing guy and look out for more of my “I love Logan” declarations as the Defiance Blog Tour stops by on the 17th of September!

    Great teaser, very funny. I can tell by this little segment that the book must be written well, it sounds like it to me anyway. Here's mine:

    LOVE IT. I can’t wait to read this book, it looks so awesome. I forgot that it was written from two points of view! It’s on of my favourite things that authors are doing these days, too. It adds so much to the characters. Love the teaser, thanks for sharing!

    Feel free to check out my teaser here.
