Teaser Tuesday, 24th Edition

Teaser Tuesday 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.

"Everything shimmered with white ice, each twig and stubborn leaf coated. All the statues had cakes of snow on their head, and it topped hedges and pergolas dripping with icy vines." - Entwined, by Heather Dixon

"In the kitchen, Nyssa didn't open the shutters to check if it was almost dawn, and never even thought about taking the pole and the well buckets. She simply opened the door and walked out into the street." -Witch Dreams, by Vivian Vande Velde

"I think one of the most awesome things about Scott Westerfeld's Uglies series is that it's not obvious which guy is best for Tally. Okay, yeah, in the end Tally's best choice is the not-dead guy, but ignoring that tiny detail..." -Mind Rain, by Scott Westerfeld (Excerpt from "Two Princes" by Sarah Beth Durst)

"'... Only the cold is so bad - it's terrible coming home at night, Jurgis. Sometimes they can't come home at all - I'm going to try to find them tonight and sleep where they do, it's so late and it's such a long ways home.'" -The Jungle, by Upton Sinclair

"In spite of herself, she'd stopped scrubbing to listen to him, trying to imagine the world he might have come from. And she couldn't." -Steel, by Carrie Vaughn

What are you reading this week?
