Teaser Tuesday, 11th 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.


"Elizabeth hated ballet lessons more than she hated rice pudding. Ballet was a weekly torture to her." - Unexpected Magic, by Diana Wynne Jones

"The ice cream made Frank hungry, so he took Henry to a place called Lenny's, owned by a man named Kyle, and they ate flat cheeseburgers and thick fries. In a town smaller than Henry had first imagined, they managed to dawdle away the afternoon, going from place to place for one reason or another or no reason at all." - 100 Cupboards, by N.D. Wilson

"To Katniss, whose mother "went away" and became an emotional invalid after her father's death, this must have seemed like an either/or situation: you can either grieve for your lost loved ones or you can plow on; you can love and risk being decimated, or you can survive. It's little wonder, then, that in Katniss' mind, romance was something she "never had the time or use for" (Hunger Games) and that when circumstances forced her to start thinking of love, it was always, always tied in her mind to survival." - The Girl Who Was On Fire, ed. Leah Wilson, essay by Jennifer Lynne Barnes

"'What's he paying you to stay here with me? Did he triple your salary to get you to stay here with his freak son, to be my jailer and keep you mouth shut?'" - Beastly, by Alex Flinn
