Teaser Tuesday: LIPS TOUCH by Laini Taylor

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

The Rules:
  1. Grab your current read
  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.

Teaser:

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.

I can't wait to read Lips Touch! I went to the bookstore, but they didn't have it so I guess I'll have to order a copy, but your teaser makes me want it now!! :)

Five Random Things About Suzie

1. I drink so much orange soda, it's probably running through my veins. I've been known to go through a twelve pack of diet sunkist in a day.

2. I'm legitimately nocturnal (or a vampire). I will be so exhausted at two pm that I'm falling asleep standing up - it has happened before, at Six Flags no less - but as soon as the sun goes down I'm wide awake.

3. I have a gorgeous unused $6000 Reem Acra wedding dress hanging in my closet, and it showed up on my doorstep the same day my (now ex) fiance broke up with me. And thank God for that. I wouldn't have wanted to waste that dress on him.

4. Social anxiety plagues me daily. I write a script and practice in front of the mirror when I have to make a phone call, but most people who interact with me have no idea how nervous I am (or perhaps they lie) because I've worked so hard to try to overcome it.

5. I'm actually worried that I will never love my children (when I do have them in the far off future) as much as I love my dogs. I just like animals better than people - they're sweet and innocent and soft and furry - is that so wrong?
