I finished Graceling (Kristin Cashore) yesterday and I was blown away (review to follow soon!). I usually take a break from reading whenever I finish reading a really good book, but my TBR stack kind of intimidates me so I just have to pick another one again.
So here’s this week’s Teaser Tuesday (I’m on time now, see :p): Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols.
How far would you go?
All Meg has ever wanted is to get away. Away from high school. Away from her backwater town. Away from her parents who seem determined to keep her imprisoned in their dead-end lives. But one crazy evening involving a dare and forbidden railroad tracks, she goes way too far… and almost doesn’t make it back.
John made a choice to stay. To enforce the rules. To serve and protect. He has nothing but contempt for what he sees as childish rebellion, and he wants to teach Meg a lesson she won’t soon forget. But Meg pushes him to the limit by questioning everything he learned at the police academy. And when he pushes back, demanding to know why she won’t be tied down, they will drive each other to the edge – and over…
I got this book after a lot of recommendations from book bloggers I follow, plus it has very nice ratings in Goodreads. I’m kind of wary about reading books from MTV, and impulse buys because I had bad experiences. But nothing ventured, nothing gained, right? It’s not like I bought Black Diamond Poles which I will never be able to use here, anyway.
And here’s the teaser!
But he was a frightened horse about to bolt. He wore that expression he tended to wear when I get too close to him, the oh-my-God-she’s-trying-to-seduce-me-and-I-don’t-like-it look. (p. 70)
That doesn’t really tell me what’s in the book…but I’m going to trust all the reviews and hope this is a really good book. :D
Okay, off to lunch!
