Teaser Tuesday, 10th Edition

Teaser Tuesday is a little late this week, sorry!

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.


"He came into the larder and stared up at the rustling. A tin of plums promptly fell heavily on his bare foot." - Unexpected Magic, by Diana Wynne Jones

"IRON is around in great quantities (this often causes distress to magical beings), but it is impossible to get to see iron being mined or smelted. The Management doubtless knows why this should be, but Tourists and AVERAGE FOLK are left to conclude that is is All Very Magical." - The Tough Guide to Fantasyland, by Diana Wynne Jones

"The porter snorted into his mustache and sneered. 'Have you been invited for tea?'" - Secondhand Charm, by Julie Berry

"'... I was just thinking, what if we could hold up things that were bright red, or bright yellow, and he could choose?'
     ...'He might make wrong choices.'" - The Giver, by Lois Lowry

"Checking quickly to be sure no one was in the hallway, I hurried into the next room, crosed over to the wall, and put my ear to it, hoping I would be able to hear something.
     'A glass works better.'" - Theodosia and the Eyes of Horus, by R. L. LaFevers

"I was so close to handing off this suffocating burden and being able to get on with my life. Not to mention all the discoveries that were practically begging me to find them." - Theodiosia and the Last Pharaoh, by R. L. LaFevers

"Once part of her boot sank beneath the surface, an alarming suction pulled it further. Jerking back sharply, she felt the fluid harden around the submerged portion of her boot, as if it were encased in cement." - Beyonders: A World Without Heroes, by Brandon Mull

"'She only said that she hoped you'd come tonight and that she wanted me to meet you.' Adrian hesitated, but something made her add, 'And that I should be careful.'" - Book of Enchantments, by Patricia C. Wrede

"'Barking spiders!' Dylan shook his head and laughed. 'Your parents must spoil your rotten.'" - Leviathan, by Scott Westerfeld (If you've read the book, you'll know why that's funny. )

"'You seem in good spirits,' she said. 'Considering.'
      'Considering that my escape was foiled?'" - Behemoth, by Scott Westerfeld

"'It's a good idea to be neighborly,' I said. 'You never know when you might need to borrow a cupful of irony.'" - One of Our Thursdays is Missing, by Jasper Fforde

"Henry did not wonder if he was dreaming. He was too surprised for that." - 100 Cupboards, by N.D. Wilson
