Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can 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!

Title: Goddess
Author: Josephine Angelini
Series: Starcrossed, book #3
Publisher: Harper Teen
Publication Date: May 28, 2013

Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble

After accidentally unleashing the gods from their captivity on Olympus, Helen must find a way to re-imprison them without starting a devastating war. But the gods are angry, and their thirst for blood already has a body count.

To make matters worse, the Oracle reveals that a diabolical Tyrant is lurking among them, which drives a wedge between the once-solid group of friends. As the gods use the Scions against one another, Lucas’s life hangs in the balance. Still unsure whether she loves him or Orion, Helen is forced to make a terrifying decision, for war is coming to her shores.

In Josephine Angelini’s compelling conclusion to the masterfully woven Starcrossed trilogy, a goddess must rise above it all to change a destiny that’s been written in the stars. With worlds built just as fast as they crumble, love and war collide in an all-out battle that will leave no question unanswered and no heart untouched.

My teaser:

"That's why I won't kiss you." He raised a hand and touched her face, and quickly dropped it. "Eventually, we'll have to go back, and I'll lose you again. I know for a fact I can't handle that."

-- p. 238 of ARC

This book is bittersweet...it's the end, and knowing what we do and how these kids have suffered...GAH!  But I just love how all of their lives are intertwined, that it's all a cycle, doomed to be repeated over and over again.  It's sad but beautiful.

Title: My Life Next Door
Author: Huntley Fitzpatrick
Series: n/a
Publisher: Dial Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: June 14, 2012
Source: purchased
Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble

A gorgeous debut about family, friendship, first romance, and how to be true to one person you love without betraying another.

“One thing my mother never knew, and would disapprove of most of all, was that I watched the Garretts. All the time.”

The Garretts are everything the Reeds are not. Loud, numerous, messy, affectionate. And every day from her balcony perch, seventeen-year-old Samantha Reed wishes she was one of them . . . until one summer evening, Jase Garrett climbs her terrace and changes everything. As the two fall fiercely in love, Jase's family makes Samantha one of their own. Then in an instant, the bottom drops out of her world and she is suddenly faced with an impossible decision. Which perfect family will save her? Or is it time she saved herself?

A dreamy summer read, full of characters who stay with you long after the story is over.

My teaser:

"There's nothing you can do, Sam. Just..." He turns away, shoves his hands in his pockets. "Maybe...just...give me a little space."

-- page 323

I'm starting this book tonight.  I've read a few lines from various pages throughout, and it sounds like there may be some drama!  Looking forward to it!
