Teaser Tuesday: Cursed by Jennifer L. Armentrout

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!

 Cursed by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Cursed - Spencer Hill Press

"Yep. Squeaky died. I buried him. Olivia dug him up. I woke up the next day with the thing sitting on my chest."
-- Chapter 9

"But don't confuse pity with caring, Ember," she went on. "Hayden's always had a soft spot for all things... lost and broken."
-- Chapter 16

Having read Armentrout's Covenant series (as far as it’s published), I couldn't help but notice Cursed. It has nothing to do with the series, but rather stands alone. The characters are gifted similarly to the X-Men, which fits right in with my supernatural reading tendencies. ;)
Main character Ember is witty and ironic - the kind of (anti-) heroine I prefer - and she’s doing everything to contradict the theory that her curse is actually a gift. Everything she touches dies, how’s that not a curse? Hayden tries to convince her otherwise and helps her with her curse/gift. I liked him from the start, because he’s one of the only few who is friendly to Ember. So I’m unhappy when his motives are questioned. Still, what are his motives?

Which books are you reading right now? Tease us in the comments.

I'm a little ashamed to admit this, but I have not read a single book of hers! I've heard such amazing things about her work though. :) I really ought to see what all the fuss is about!

My TT!
