Teaser Tuesday: Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at Should Be Reading. To join, just grab the book you’re reading and share two sentences from the book. Be careful to avoid spoilers!

I’m just ending The Girl with the Steel Corset (soooo good!!!!), and starting Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini. I hope you enjoy the teaser! Angelini is a debut author, which is exciting all on its own!

The Tease: “Something about the day was off. Everyone- from her favorite teachers to the few acquaintances she should have been happy to see- was annoying her, and every now and again while she was walking down the hall she would suddenly feel like she was inside an airplane at ten thousand feet. …

Then as suddenly as it had come on, the discomfort would go away. But even still, there was a pressure, a pre-thunderstorm energy all around her, even though the skies were lovely and blue.” (pg 25)

I’ve heard some mixed reviews about this book, so I’m excited to finally get the chance to dig in and see for myself what the buzz is all about!

    I just finished The Girl in the Steel Corset and I must say I loved that book! I loved all the mechanical and high tech things while it had old fashioned dress and dialect. I’ve secretly always wanted to wear a corset and live in the those times so this was the perfect book to combine two loves of science and fantasy with reality. I really hope there is a sequel! I’m reading Divergent next since you recommended it and so far what I’ve read it’s got my attention.

    I am dying to read The Girl in the Steel Corset!!! And Starcrossed is in my NetGalley queue. Will get there soon. I’m currently reading the Immortal Secrets of Nicholas Flamel ,which is a pretty sweet series. On book 4 now, just found out that there’s a 6th book coming out next summer. Grrr. I thought it ended after 5! oh well…something to look forward to!

  • I just picked up Starcrossed from the library and The Girl in the Steel Corset is on my TBR list!
