Teaser Tuesday, 12th 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.

"Mother kept on buying cornflakes because it said on the packet: Made from the finest natural ingredients. But one can get tired of cornflakes quite easily." - Unexpected Magic, by Diana Wynne Jones

"Every day, in a million ways, we share information about ourselves, whether true or false, through our appearance.
     No one better understands the philosophy of fashion better than Collins' fictional character, Cinna." - The Girl Who Was On Fire, edited by Leah Wilson (Excerpt from "Crime of Fashion", by Terri Clark)

"'We still have a few minutes before curfew,' he says. 'Do you want to come talk on the steps with me?'" - Matched, by Ally Condie

"More than anything, he wanted to be alone.
     When he could hear only the sounds of distant Glader conversations, as well as faint echoes of bleating sheep and snorting pigs, his wish was granted; he found the junction of the two giant walls and collapsed into the corner to rest." - The Maze Runner, by James Dashner

"On Hugo's birthday, his father took him to the movies as he usually did, and he gave him one of the notebooks as a present.
     Meanwhile, Hugo's father became obsessed with getting the automaton to work." - The Invention of Hugo Cabret, by Brian Selznick

"He rose toward the sky, and the pain exploded anew, fresh and raw. Then his wish to pass out came true and darkness washed his troubles away." - The Scorch Trials, by James Dashner

"She closed her eyes again. Ai Ling conjured her father in her mind, guiding her hand as she wrote calligraphy." - Silver Phoenix, by Cindy Pon
