Shiver for Teaser Tuesday


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by the amazing MizB at Should Be Reading.

Anyone can play along-just grab your current read, turn to a random page and find two good "teaser"
sentences to share. 

My teasers are from Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater, which has been on my stack for far too long! 

I know many have already read this but I'm only a few chapters into it and I  love it.
The brilliant colors of the brittle leaves all around the shed mocked me then, evidence that a year had lived and died without my being aware of it.  I knew with sudden, chilling certainty that this was my last year. (82)
The book fell open to this part-amazing-now I've got to keep reading!

What random words are teasing your today??
