Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB @ Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
Grab you'r current read
Open the book to a random page
Share with us two (2) "teasers" sentences form that page
Be careful not to include spoilers! (make sure what you share doesn't give away too much! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title of the book so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR pile if they'd like   

Today my teaser comes from... 
   The Raven Boys (Raven Cycle, #1) 
And she saw someone.

Blue's heart hammered like a fist in her breastbone. On the other side of the heartbeat, he was still there. Where there should have been nothing, there was a person.

Speak made me think about how awful the world is. *weeps* That book HURT a lot. So good, though. I just read TFIOS and my goodness was it amazing.

I have The Book Thief on my list but I forgot about Speak when I was writing it :( You have a good list. I will have to check a couple of them out.

:) Lots of bloggers I follow have been gushing over The Raven Boys! I haven't read any of her other books (I know, I know!), but this one sounds incredible!

My TT

I saw the show on Lifetime Channel, its just as sad as the book.

Every time I went to the library they had The Book Thief, I didn't pick it up but I finally did and was so glad I did!

I'm already half way through The Raven Boys, I like it a lot.

Thank you all for stopping by! (=
