Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat. 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Today’s Teaser Tuesday:
Summary (from Goodreads): Maybe it’s the long, lazy days, or maybe it’s the heat making everyone a little bit crazy. Whatever the reason, summer is the perfect time for love to bloom.
Summer Days and Summer Nights: Twelve Love Stories, written by twelve bestselling young adult writers and edited by the international bestselling Stephanie Perkins, will have you dreaming of sunset strolls by the lake. So set out your beach chair and grab your sunglasses. You have twelve reasons this summer to soak up the sun and fall in love.
Summer Days and Summer Nights definitely has a lot of variety! I love how each story is completely different and written by another author. I am enjoying this one, but it’s not nearly as incredible as My True Love Gave to Me, the first winter themed anthology.
Here is the teaser:
This teaser comes from Veronica Roth’s story, Inertia.
“Even without the electrodes, I knew how old I was by the colour of my fingernails—my freshman year of high school, I had been obsessed with painting my nails in increasingly garish and ugly colours, lime green and sparkly purple, glow-in-the-dark blue and burnt orange. I liked to take something that was supposed to be pretty and make it ugly instead.”
