Teaser Tuesday, 2nd Edition

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!

I am doing a slightly different version of Teaser Tuesday. Since I go through books so quickly, I'm going to put a quote from any book I've read in the past week.


"The fires burned hottest in Congo between 1998 and 2001, at which point cell phone makers realized they were funding anarchy. To their credit, they began to buy tantalum and niobium from Australia, even though it cost more, and Congo cooled down a bit." - The Disappearing Spoon, by Sam Kean

"'One night...' Ambuya paused dramatically until everyone had turned to watch her. Nhamo held her breath. No one had ever told her about Father." - A Girl Named Disaster, by Nancy Farmer

"Katsa's first view of the sea was like her first view of the mountains, though mountains and sea were nothing like each other. The mountains were silent, and the sea was rushing noise, calm, and rushing noise again." - Graceling, by Kristen Cashore

"Again the horse moved forward; this time Halli flung himself bodily in front of it, speaking at great speed. 'It's the Hakonssons!' he cried." - Heroes of the Valley, by Jonathan Stroud

"'The commander didn't hit that man. I asked him not to in his mind, and he didn't.'" - Fire, by Kristen Cashore

"Time passed at a crawl. The night was eerily still, for my sisters did not move in their sleep." - The Thirteenth Princess, by Diane Zahler
