Teaser Tuesday: Illuminate by Aimee Agresti

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To 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!  

Illuminate by Aimee Agresti.

Illuminate - Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

When I got to the door of my room, I was just relieved to see nothing on fire. It took so little to make me happy these days.
-- Chapter 19
There is no one more shocked than me that someone like that showed an interest in me. And really, I had no clue he was a 'bad boy' until I found out he was trying to steal my soul for Satan.
-- Chapter 23

Usually, I have a severe dislike for books with paranormal spiritual backgrounds. Possibly because I’ve had too many not so happy encounters with them. This one is a fun departure from that and I enjoyed reading it because it’s not too openly "up there" and "that other place downstairs". I think there are a few passages that could have been a little more concise, which would have helped to keep the tension even more together. Overall, a really enjoyable and fun read with an interesting idea and lots of things going on. Sequel please.

Which book have you buried your nose in this week?

Good teasers. There were lots of good lines in this book but for me the story as a whole was just so-so. I hope that you are enjoying it though.

My Teaser is here.

He's definitely a bad boy alright! Stealing someone's soul is not the best way to make friends.
