Teaser Tuesday, 29th 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.

"'What do you think you're doing?'
     'Chopping wood,' I say, my voice on the narrow line between matter-of-fact and rude." - The Near Witch, by Victoria Schwab

"'Take her away!' ordered Lieka again. 'Lock her up somewhere dark.'" - Zombies Vs. Unicorns, excerpt from "The Highest Justice," by Garth Nix

"'Are there any Feegles in here?'
     'Ach, no,' said a voice from under the bed.
     There was some frantic whispering and the voice said: 'That is tae say, there's hardly any o' us in here at a'.'" - Wintersmith, by Terry Pratchett

"'Really, Amalia, this is childish,' the duchess said. 'If you deprived every person whose shoes you liked of their footwear, half of the King's Seat would go barefoot.'" - Dragon Slippers, by Jessica Day George

"I stuttered through an explanation. My powers of reasoning – of fibbing, if truth be told  – were creaky with disuse." - Princess Ben, by Catherine Gilbert Murdock

"Herrikhan grew fat and indolent; his desires were constantly satisfied, and his pleasure was law. Larger than his bloated body was his monstrous pride; as the years wore on, he grew discontent with the monuments and palaces that had been erected in his honor." - The Legend of Holly Claus, by Brittany Ryan
