Teaser Tuesday: LIPS TOUCH by Laini Taylor

Teaser Tuesday is an awesome weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading

  2. Open to a random page
  3. Share (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  4. 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 someone else)
  5. Share the title and book so other readers can add it to their TBR lists if they like it

I'm about a third of the way in and completely hooked on Laini Taylor's National Book Award Nominee Lips Touch Three Times. The book includes three tales of supernatural love, each pivoting on a kiss that is no mere kiss, but an action with profound consequences for the kissers' souls.


Kissing can ruin lives. Lips touch, sometimes teeth clash. New hunger is born with a throb and caution falls away.

Book Description:

Goblin Fruit: In Victorian times, goblin men had only to offer young girls sumptuous fruits to tempt them to sell their souls. But what does it take to tempt today's savvy girls?

Spicy Little Curses: A demon and the ambassador to Hell tussle over the soul of a beautiful English girl in India. Matters become complicated when she falls in love and decides to test her curse.

Hatchling: Six days before Esme's fourteenth birthday, her left eye turns from brown to blue. She little suspects what the change heralds, but her small safe life begins to unravel at once. What does the beautiful, fanged man want with her, and how is her fate connected to a mysterious race of demons?

From Generation Dead, by Daniel Waters:

He asked her if she wanted a ride to school on Monday, which was weird because he never asked that. She typed back "Sure" and punctuated it with a goofy emoticon that was the Weird Sisters' trademark, a round, horned smiley with eyelashes, a tail, and a tongue wagging moronically out of the side of its open mouth.
