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
•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 “Black Heart (Curse Workers #3)” by Holly Black:
I think of her at twelve, a skinny girl with eyes too large for her face and a nimbus of tangled blonde hair. In my memory she’s sitting on the branch of a tree, eating a rope of red licorice. Her lips are sticky with it. Her flip-flops are hanging off her toes. She’s cutting her initials into the bark, high up, so her cousin can’t claim that she’s lying when she tells him she got higher than he ever will.
Boys never believe I can beat them, she told me back then.
What are you reading this Tuesday?
