Teaser Tuesday, 3rd 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.

"Some ices sink rather than float in water, and others form not six-sided snowflakes, but shapes like palm leaves or heads of cauliflower. One alien ice, Ice X, doesn't melt until it reaches 3,700ºF." - The Disappearing Spoon, by Sam Kean

"She took a few deep, almost sobbing breaths. Nothing awful had happened so far, but you never knew." -A Girl Named Disaster, by Nancy Farmer

"He closed his eyes, listened, trying to concentrate. Shuffling steps, odd creaking sounds... Now they were on his left, now straight ahead of him... Something was going quickly, circling ahead of him, moving inward all the time." - Heroes of the Valley by Jonathan Stroud

"I don't like this," Doc says. "Whoever was down here when you were must have known you were here, must have know you would hear what was happening." - Across the Universe, by Beth Revis

"He hung on even though Kabul Aqba went on rising upward, roaring now like the sky falling, and the soldier from gripping him around the arms went to gripping him around the waist and then around the top of the legs. Kabul Aqba shouted as if his voice were the thunder itself and rose up bigger yet, until both his legs were too big to hold at once, and the soldier slid down until he was grimly clutching one of them, just below its vast knee." - Castle in the Air, by Diana Wynne Jones
