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! (If you're on Goodreads, I've included a button to add the book to your list just below the teaser!)
If there is one author who can get me out of a blogging drought, it is Karen E. Hoover. I can't promise that I will get back to totally regular blogging, yet, but I enjoy her books so much and always want to support her when she has a new release. She asked me if I'd be willing to read and review her upcoming release, Fractured (Newtimber Book #1), and I just couldn't say no! The official launch is coming up on June 21st, but I thought I would have a little fun and share a teaser today! And since I rarely can stick to the two-sentence rule, you are getting the opening paragraph from me...
The cold wall pressed against my back, sucking away the warmth, the sleeping bag beneath me the only padding between my butt and the broken concrete floor as I loaded my paint guns with special balls I’d made with an oil-based color. This wouldn’t come off as easily as the regular toy ammunition, and I had decent capacity with these guns. Between the two of them, I could shoot five hundred paintballs with machine-gun-like speed. Well, almost.
~ Kindle Locations 70-73 of Fractured by Karen E. Hoover
Seriously, Karen's books are always a fun read. Not to mention I am really digging this cover! Be on the look-out for my review of Fractured, coming up on release day! If you're curious, you can check out my past reviews of a couple of her other books:
