Teaser Tuesday, 28th 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.

"'I like–no–need to believe that you know what you're doing. Makes it so much easier to follow your instructions, especially when I'm acting as bait for a fifty-foot-long snake.'" - Fire Study, by Maria V. Snyder

"And everything seemed wonderful to him. Not only were paved roads 'beautiful,' but garbage cans were 'ingenious.'" - Warped, by Maurissa Guibord

"His dark eyes bear down as if he can bully me with a glance. But his looks are not as strong as my mother's or my own, and they do not say nearly as many things." - The Near Witch, by Victoria Schwab

"At halftime he comes over to the bleachers, breathing hard and grinning... You hang back, knowing he sees you and wondering if he'll say something." - Zombies Vs. Unicorns, excerpt from "Love Will Tear Us Apart" by Alaya Dawn Johnson

"Petra's household was a tornado where life swirled in noisy circles. Sneakers, books, and backpacks traveled through rooms on unseen currents, and there was always food underfoot and an old frying pan or two on the steps outside the back door." - Chasing Vermeer, by Blue Balliett

"The sunset sky was still red, and a gibbous moon was high, but the clouds were being whipped across it, filling the woods with moving shadows. Branches knocked together, and Tiffany heard the creak and crash as, somewhere in the dark, one fell to the ground." - Wintersmith, by Terry Pratchett

What are you reading this week?
