teaser tuesday (84)

It's Teaser Tuesday, a bookish blog meme hosted every week by MizB of Should Be Reading. Here's how it works:

Grab your current read and let it fall open to a random page (or if you're reading on an electronic device, pick a random number and scroll to that section). Post two or more sentences from that page, along with the book title and author. Share your find with others in the comments at Should Be Reading, and don't give anything vital away!

for darkness shows the stars by diana peterfreund book cover
“She didn’t need to hear him gloat about how all his dreams—the ones they’d once created together—were about to come true.  Envy hurt exponentially more than heartbreak because your soul was torn in two, half soaring with happiness for another person, half mired in a well of self-pity and pain.”

p. 329 of Diana Peterfreund’s For Darkness Shows the Stars

I love FDStS so much. My review is going up tomorrow and I can't wait to discuss the book with people.

Liviania: I read it tonight. In one sitting - from when I got home from work until now. I'm in love with it, too! I'll be sure to stop by your review as soon as I've written enough of my own to be sure I won't steal any ideas (but seriously, that's how i cope).
