TEASER TUESDAY



Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, just do as 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 any spoilers so as not to ruin the book for others.


Make sure to share the title and the author so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR piles.

This week's Teaser is from
GlimmerWhat if you forgot your identity and had to rely on other people to tell you who you were?

And what if to discover your true self, you first had to unravel a mystery so big and terrifying you were not sure you’d survive solving it?

When Marshall and Elyse wake up in each other’s arms with zero memory of how they got there or who they are, it’s the start of a long journey through their separate pasts and shared future.

Terrified by their amnesia, the two make a pact to work together to find the answers that could jog their missing memories. As they piece together clues, they discover they’re in the idyllic mountain resort town of Summer Falls, where everyone seems mysteriously happy, but as Marshall and Elyse quickly learn, darkness lurks beneath the town’s perfect facade. Not only is the town haunted by sinister ghosts, but none of its living inhabitants retain bad memories of anything—not the death of Marshall’s mom, not the hidden shame in Elyse’s family, not even the day-to-day anguish of high school.

Lonely in this world of happy zombies, Marsh and Elyse fall into an intense relationship...but the secrets they uncover could be the death of this growing love—and the death of everyone, and everything, they love in Summer Falls.  ~ From GoodReads



My Teaser ~

"The intense look in her eyes melts a little. It's like she knows what I'm really asking. I'm asking her to tell me who I am, in her eyes. It's f**ked up, but I'll believe whatever she tells me." (pg. 29, ARC)

Expected publication: April 17th 2012 by Balzer + Bray                     

You can pre-order Glimmer at:
Barnes & Noble | Amazon | Book Depository

  21. Nice teaser! I like the idea of this one being a stand-alone because that's so rare with YA fantasy titles. I've heard mixed reviews of this, but I almost don't care. I just want to read a stand-alone!
