Teaser Tuesday - Shattered

Teaser Tuesdays 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!

My Teaser for the Week:

"Whatever she was in - a truck, Lisa thought, a metal box in the back of a pickup truck - stopped. Her heart lurched as she heard the gridning of gears, the muffled slam of a door. One door. One assailant." Page 352, Shattered by Karen Robards

I've missed a few TT's due to a lack of good reading material :) Tried a few books however they didn't hold my interest past Chapter 5. This book however, is quite good, but I've read almost all of Karen Robards' books and have liked them all.

What are you reading this week? Would love to check it out!

  1. I don't like the cover image, though I kind of like the layout and stuff...just not the picture of the girl. Could've used a better one. Anyway, this book sounds great. I'll have to check that out. Thanks!

    Check out my Teaser Tuesday and contest!

  2. Hey Audrey, thanks for stopping by my blog. If you loved the cover for Ink Exchange you'll love the cover of the first book in the series Wicked Lovely (I like this cover more), it's beautiful. It's a really great YA fantasy series, I highly recommend it.

    Never heard of Shattered before but I love your teaser.

  9. Hahahaha well my opinion barely counts as anything, but thanks for showing me the other cover. I quite like it. It's simple, and the red & white-ness of the top matches the lady at the bottom, so I like that. It gives off a slightly creepy aura too. If you like her novels, I'll have to check them out too.

    Btw, new follower. Surprised I didn't follow first time I came here.

  26. Excerpt fromLife After Death: Journey to the Other Side by David R. Wheeler:

    After examining the reports of hundreds of dying people, Dr. Osis verified the existence of deathbed visions and the predominance of images of departed individuals waiting to guide the about-to-be-dead to the Other Side. Osis wrote: "There is something in this type of vision which distinctly changes the dying person's outlook on death."
