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!

Mendy was too busy to stop and send me her teaser, so I'm sharing two from the books I'm currently reading:

Add to Goodreads
Title: Chantress
Author: Amy Butler Greenfield
Series: Chantress Trilogy, book #1
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books
Publication Date: May 7, 2013

Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble

Sing and the darkness will find you.

Shipwrecked on an island seven years ago, Lucy has been warned she must never sing, or disaster will strike. But on Allhallows' Eve, Lucy hears tantalizing music in the air. When she sings it, she unlocks a terrible secret: She is a Chantress, a spell-singer, brought to the island not by shipwreck but by a desperate enchantment gone wrong.

Her song lands her back in England — and in mortal peril, for the kingdom lies in the cruel grasp of a powerful Lord Protector and his mind-reading hunters, the Shadowgrims. The Protector has killed all Chantresses, for they alone can destroy the Shadowgrims. Only Lucy has survived.

In terrible danger, Lucy takes shelter with Nat, a spy who turns her heart upside-down. Nat has been working with his fellow scholars of the Invisible College to overthrow the Lord Protector, and they have long hoped to find a living Chantress to help them. But Lucy is completely untrained, and Nat deeply distrusts her magic. If Lucy cannot master the songspells, how long can she even stay alive?

Beguiling and lyrical, dangerous and romantic, Chantress will capture readers in a spell they won’t want to break.

My teaser:

The pink left his face, leaving it stark white. "That's rich, coming from you. Have you forgotten how you spied on me--on my mind, on my memories?"

I'm not very far into this one, but I'm dying to know what this argument is about!  =)

Title: Spark
Author: Brigid Kemmerer
Series: Elementals, book #2
Publisher: Kensington/KTeen
Publication Date: August 28, 2012

Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble

Gabriel Merrick plays with fire. Literally.

Sometimes he can even control it. And sometimes he can't.

Gabriel has always had his brothers to rely on, especially his twin, Nick. But when an arsonist starts wreaking havoc on their town, all the signs point to Gabriel. Only he's not doing it.

And no one seems to believe him. Except a shy sophomore named Layne, a brainiac who dresses in turtlenecks and jeans and keeps him totally off balance. Layne understands family problems, and she understands secrets. She has a few of her own.

Gabriel can't let her guess about his brothers, about his abilities, about the danger that's right at his heels. But there are some risks he can't help taking.

The fuse is lit...

My teaser:

     Hunter sighed and gave him a look. "Come on, baby, don't be like that. Did you pack your Midol?"
     "All right, all right." Gabriel climbed out of the car, slamming the door behind him. "I don't even know why I like you."
-- page 168

I absolutely adore the bromance that's developed between Gabriel and Hunter!  Loveitloveitloveit!  :D
