Teaser Tuesday (26): The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater and The Outside by Laura Bickle


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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This week I'm sharing Teasers from two books:

Goodreads Summary:

 Now that the ley lines around Cabeswater have been woken, nothing for Ronan, Gansey, Blue, and Adam will be the same. Ronan, for one, is falling more and more deeply into his dreams, and his dreams are intruding more and more into waking life. Meanwhile, some very sinister people are looking for some of the same pieces of the Cabeswater puzzle that Gansey is after...


"Blue touched her mouth.  It felt the same as it always did.  
Not at all like she had just gotten her first and last kiss."

One girl. One road. One chance to save what remains…

After a plague of vampires is unleashed in the world, Katie is kicked out of her Amish community for her refusal to adhere to the new rules of survival. Now in exile, she enters an outside world of unspeakable violence with only her two “English” friends and a horse by her side. Together they seek answers and other survivors—but each sunset brings the threat of vampire attack, and each sunrise the threat of starvation.

And yet through this darkness come the shining ones: luminescent men and women with the power to deflect vampires and survive the night. But can these new people be trusted, and are they even people at all?

In this edge-of-your-seat thriller, it’s up to one Amish girl to save her family, her community, and the boy she loves . . . but what will she be asked to leave behind in return?


"I prayed again, as I always did:  at dawn and sunset.  
At sunset, I prayed for protection. 
At dawn, I prayed in thanksgiving that we had lived to see it once again."
                                        -- page 27 (Nook)

Both of these books are so good that I couldn't choose just one to feature.  I had a very hard time choosing one Teaser from each.  There are so many brilliant quotes!

I'd love to know what your Teaser is!
