It's Teaser Tuesday time, the day you open what you're reading and pick a line to share with all. Check out Should Be Reading for all the deets.
I'm gonna break them thar rules and tease two books today. Mainly because I just HAVE to share a bit of Code Name Verity, by Elizabeth Wein, because I heart it so much.
...let me remind you that I had been in France less than 48 hours before that obliging agent of yours had to stop me being run over by a French van full of French chickens because I'd looked the wrong way before crossing the street. Which shows how cunning the Gestapo are. "This person I've pulled from beneath the wheels of certain death was expecting traffic to travel on the left side of the road. Therefore she must be British, and is likely to have parachuted into Nazi-occupied France out of an Allied plane. I shall now arrest her as a spy." (page 6,7)
Awesome, right?! And that's not a giveaway by the way, it's only like five pages in. My second teaser is from the book I'm reading right now, Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout.
In front of me, he walked right through the flames, looking every bit like a daimon hunter should. The fire did not singe his pants nor dirty his shirt. Not a single dark hair was touched by the blaze. Those cool, storm-cloud-colored eyes fixed on me. (page 4)
Your turn. Tease me with what you're reading.
