Teaser Tuesday #8

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB over at 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!
 
This week I'm going to share teasers from City of Glass and Experience.
 
"Clary, stiff with horror, felt Simon stir beside her. She turned to look at him and was shocked - he was white as paper except for a hectic red flush on both cheekbones. She could see the veins snaking under his skin, like the growth of some delicate, branching coral. "The blood," he whispered, not looking at her. "I have to get away from it." p 278

(I have to say, I just opened up the book and an evelope fell out. It was a note written by Meg Kerr!!! Totally awesome... ok, on to the teaser)

"It is a suspicion generally entertained, that a honeymoon too sweet may bode ill for the marriage. It was well, therefore, that Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy had a source of vexation, and that it did not derive, at least directly, from his new wife." p 1

Can't wait to read YOUR teasers!

    I hope you are enjoying your reading.
