Teaser Tuesday (4)

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!

I want nothing more than to lie down in the mud, but as my knees buckle, his grip on my upper arms tightens, holding me up.  When he stands he pulls me with him.  "Can you run?"

pg. 149 ARC of These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

This quote really showed me how exhausted she was.  I can't imagine wanting to just lay down in the mud...gross...I'd have to be beyond worn out to want to do that.  And then to be asked to run???  There must be something really great ahead - or really bad behind.


  1. Oh, wow, sounds like quite a story! Thanks for sharing...and here's MY TUESDAY MEMES POST

  2. Great teaser. With just two sentences, the author does a great job of showing just how serious their situation must be. Good writing.
    My Teaser is from ORPHAN TRAIN.

    1. The rest of the book is just as descriptive. I have a hard time putting it down at night.

  3. That sounds like a typical situation any time I try to run... I hate that "sport"!
    Here's my Teaser Tuesday The Program
