Teaser Tuesday, 32nd 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.

"It's almost as if my watch knows it's the center of attention. A strident clicking emanates from it, and then an extraordinary thing happens." – Corsets and Clockwork, edited by Trisha Telep; excerpt from "Under Amber Skies" by Maria V. Snyder

"Clambering along the narrow headland, slipping on slimy seaweed and frightening off a pair of seals, the Company of Explorers headed inland for the bruised and purple moors swelling into view. In the very far distance they could see the tiny outline of Neverpeak, the goal of their journey." – Peter Pan in Scarlet, by Geraldine McCaughrean

"Against the clouds, Ky's eyes seem lighter, reflecting the gray around them, and I have an unsettling thought: perhaps his eyes have no color. They reflect what he wears, what the Officials tell him to be." - Matched, by Ally Condie

"As soon as the first room was empty, the spinners went on to the second, and finally they went on to the third, which like the others was quickly cleared of flax. Then the three women took leave of the girl, saying to her as they parted, 'Do not forget the promise you made us, for it will bring you good fortune.'" – Tales of Grimm and Andersen, by The Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen; excerpt from "The Three Spinning Fairies" by The Brothers Grimm

"If you've ever been for a long time without anything like enough sleep, you know that you get pretty non compos pretty soon. I was forgetting things the moment Billy said them and couldn't really think of anything but feeding the dragonlet." – Dragonhaven, by Robin McKinley
