teaser tuesday (6)

Tuesday, August 11, 2009 |
It's Teaser Tuesday, a bookish blog meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Here's how it works:

Grab your current read and let it fall open to a random page. Post two (or more) sentences from that page, along with the title and author. Don’t give anything vital away!

“I run up the stairs, hurrying now because luck can’t possibly be on my side every day of my life, and I am not mentally disposed to reciting any gases today, much less the noble ones. I take the stairs two at a time, feeling the awesome burn in my quads, when all of a sudden…he’s there.”

-p. 65 of Gaby Triana’s Riding the Universe

I have so many reasons for liking this teaser, among them the fact that I really perked up at the mention of the noble gases. I'm such a geek, heehee! Anyway, very good teaser.

My own rather terse Teaser this week is at Bookishgal.

Sounds like someone is going to be late for class. I wish I had that trouble in high school but no boys were around. I could have used a distraction some of the time.

Thanks for sharing the teaser. Let me know how the book goes.
