Teaser Tuesday: Willow by Julia Hoban & Falling Under by Gwen Hayes

I thought I would do two books this Teaser Tuesday because I just finished Willow by Julia Hoban and will begin Falling Under by Gwen Hayes tonight!

Like always Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading!

I began reading Willow last night and I found the lines I wanted to post for TT. It was a such a powerful section that I couldn't pass it up, so I wrote it down. Lately when I'm reading, I have a notepad next to me because a lot of times I find lines I love and never remember what page they were on, so now I write em down.

"She rolls up her sleeve. The bite of the blade kills the noise. It wipes out the memory of the those staring faces. Willow looks at her arm, at the life springing from her. Tiny pinpricks of red that blossom into giant peonies." (pg 3)


"I screamed and clawed at my own skin. Wanting it off of me like it was offensive. Vulgar." (pg 210)

Can't wait to start Falling Under. I have lots of good books coming up to read. Hope I can read em before they are due back.

Time to look at what everyone's teasers this week and make my TBR list even bigger!

The first one sounds intriguing, but it's in present tense and I don't like present tense most of the time. :-(

Hi. :)

I love to keep track of favorite comments, too. If it's a library book, I'll use my notebook to write down the quotes, but if it's my own book, I'll mark it up like crazy!

Glad you are excited about your reads this week. :)

I love your teasers. Thanks for visiting my blog too. Yes, I have heard of Willow and that it was really good! You know what I do, I buy those post-it note tabs and put tabs in spots that I want to remember in my books. The only problem is, I end up with tons of tabs! I am trying not to do that with my current book and see how it goes. Even with my kindle I copy quite a few notes!

What powerful teasers you have this week! Enjoy your reads.
