Teaser Tuesday (19)

Teaser Tuesday, a meme hosted by Should Be Reading is really easy and fun to participate in. All you have to do is:
  • 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 teaser
 What if I didn't want to move on just yet?  What if that medal reminded me that the guy I'd trusted most in this world shot people, shot me, shot himself?  Why couldn't she see that accepting the school's "thanks," in that light, was painful to me? Like gratitude would be the only possibly emotion I could feel now. Gratitude that I'd lived.  Gratitude that I'd been forgiven.  Gratitude that they'd recognized that I'd saved the lives of other Garvin students.


So far--and I am not quite halfway through the book--this one is every bit as stunning as I expected.  The writing is so clean and simple and painfully honest and I really, really love it.

How about you? What are you reading this Tuesday?

That sounds really emotional!! I have heard of this book, but haven't read any reviews or anything on it. I can't wait to see your thoughts!!

"Clean and simple and painfully honest" sounds great to me. :) Nice pick for this meme--can't wait to read your review!

I'm really looking forward to your thoughts on this one. Even from that little snippet, I can tell the writing is great! :)

Excellent teaser - very gripping and emotional. I will need to check out Hate List for sure.

Here is mine from J. Thomas Shaw's new book, The Rx Factor, which is a fast paced non-stop action medical thriller. You can learn more about the author here http://www.therxfactor.com/:

"As the aircraft burst into flames a few hundred feet over the Atlantic, Ryan Matthews bolted upright. His heart pounded and a cold, clammy sheen of perspiration covered his trembling body."

That sounds pretty intense. Great teaser. Thanks for stopping by my teaser.
