teaser tuesday (85)

Tuesday, June 19, 2012 |
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!

“Not being able to explain why he was worried didn’t change what he knew.
Miranda Blackwood wasn’t safe.
That wasn’t the only thing worrying him.  Where were the voices?”

p. 57 of Gwenda Bond’s Blackwood (ARC version, subject to change)

I think most of us would be worried about the PRESENCE of voices, rather than their ABSENCE! I'm definitely curious about what voices he's expecting to hear.
My teaser is from Perigee Moon by Lynn Schneider.

LOL... Usually people worry when they hear voices, not when they don't. That totally sounds intriguing.

People aren't usually worried about where the voices are, but why they're there in the first place. Very interesting, I may have to pick this one up next =)
