Teaser Tuesday: Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry

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!

Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry.

Pushing the Limits –
Harlequin Teen

Sometimes when you see the line, you think it’s a good idea to cross it – until you do.
— Noah

You can live life to please everyone else or please yourself. Come next fall, I’ll be living large at the University of Florida and forgetting that I ever made friends with people like Grace. I’ve made my decision. What’s yours?
— Echo

In an attempt to reduce the towering Mt. TBR (don’t judge, I’m proudly below 300 books right now) I picked up this recommendation from Summer 2012. Not at all a light summer read, but still swoon-worthy and actually quite gripping. I’ll admit to surprised glances at the clock and to almost missing my bus stop. Sorry boss, I needed to finish one more chapter and public transport didn’t want to wait ... that would have worked out perfectly I’m sure.
There are a few factors in this book that are in serious danger of inducing heavy eye-rolls, but maybe I’m too mellow right now or it’s handled really well. But we’ll see what those two sort-of crazy birds will get into in the last quarter of the book.

How is you TBR faring? Mine is a presence in my life who should contribute to paying the bills. Or at least take out the trash. Let’s hear from you in the comments.

I really like the quote: "Sometimes when you see the line, you think it's a good idea to cross id -- until you do." How amazingly true.

Yay on the below 300 books. Between physical books, e-books and the library... I don't even want to count them all up. :) Sounds like a really good book.

Both of these are good ones. I've got this on my TBR. Good for you on lowering yours!

My TBR is a mountain that I will never conquer, but I will have a great time trying. LOL Kudos to you for making progress.

I feel bad but I've reduced my TBR pile by going through my Goodreads list. I remember when this book was newly released, everyone adored it but I thought it was too soppy for me at the time. I like your teasers though, mine is from The Walls Around Us:
