Teaser Tuesday #25

First of all, just want to let you know that the giveaway for Tears of the Broken ends on Saturday. So hurry over to the entry and leave your comments! All I need is your email address so I can let you know if you've won!

Now, back to our regularly scheduled program.

Thank you to MizB of Should Be Reading for giving us Teaser Tuesday every week!

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's teaser comes from In Dreams Begin by Skyler White. A book I read more than a year ago but felt it deserved to resurface for a bit.
I crave sleep the way a locked-up junkie wants a hit, but I've never actually heard voices before. So maybe I'm not asleep. Maybe I'm falling apart. p 3

This book was really interesting. A bit hard to follow at times, but interesting nonetheless. I love the way Skyler writes. The words seem to just write themselves. And her descriptions of the things and people in the books are amazing.

Goodreads blurb:
In a Victorian Ireland of magic, poetry, and rebellion, Ida Jameson, an amateur occultist, reaches out for power-but captures Laura Armstrong, a modern-day graphic artist, instead. When Ida channels Laura into the body of celebrated beauty and Irish freedom-fighter Maud Gonne, Laura falls in love with the young poet W. B. Yeats. Their love affair entwines with Irish history and weaves through Yeats' poetry- until Ida discovers something she wants more than magic in the subterranean spaces between Laura's time and her own. With Laura's Irish past threatening her orderly present, she and Yeats must find a way to make their love last over time, in changing bodies...or lose each other forever.

Can't wait to see the teasers you guys have this week!
