Teaser Tuesday: Skylark by Meagan Spooner

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!  

Skylark by Meagan Spooner.

Skylark - Corgi

I knew what I would find when I tried the handle, but the wave of despair still choked me. The door wouldn’t budge.
-- Chapter 6

“And then you’ll go home,” he said, and twisted my hair so hard my eyes watered. I didn’t cry out, though. I heard his message:
We’re lying.
-- Chapter 7


I don’t usually have a problem with books that throw you into the story without warning. And I wouldn’t say that I had a problem with this one. But I somehow found myself asking What is going on? a little too often during the beginning. I think I mostly have figured that out by now and I’m beginning to enjoy the scenario of this world so let’s see where this will lead. At the moment, I wouldn’t mind if Caesar were actually called Brutus.

Let us know in the comments what you are currently reading.

I absolutely loved this book! I hope the beginning hasn't put you off too much. Personally it spurred me on to keep reading to find out more but I can completely see where you're coming from :) Great teasers and enjoy the rest!

Here's my teaser from Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins.

Happy reading!

Good teasers. I'm wondering what caused the "wave of despair" and why he's twisting her hair so hard. Sounds like there's plenty of action in this book!
My Teaser is from CONFESSIONS OF A PREDATORY LENDER.

I definitely need to read Pushing the Limits and it sounds like this one will be on the TBR list as well!
