Teaser Tuesday [26] Above by Leah Bobet

 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!

This week's teaser is from... Above by Leah Bobet!!
"I hit the ground hard, back and ankles and the back of my head, everything gone bright white for one second too long. The brand bounces out of my hand, and when my eyes clear up, the last thing in the whole Tale of my life I see is an outstretched arm, five delicate carver-long fingers, a pair of shadow-eyes, terrible and sparking and sad - " (Page 41).
*This quote is from an uncorrected proof. Quotes in the finished copy may change.*
So, I'm actually NOT reading this book yet, but I really wanted to tease myself :) How'd I do?? Actually.. I kept reading a bit.. THIS ONE IS GOING TO ROCK MY SOCKS OFF!!
