Teaser Tuesdays: Starcrossed & The Near Witch

It’s time for another Teaser post! Today’s the first day of the semester. I got home and slept right away so I’m posting this one a little late!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

-Grab your current read.
-Open to a random page.
-Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
-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 others!)
-Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I’m currently reading two titles: The Near Witch and Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini.

My Teasers:

“Had enough?” he asked, smiling at Helen’s brazen admiration of his looks.
“Not yet,” she said, a matching smile breaking across her face.

-p. 160, Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini (Hardcover)

I catch my breath as the stranger’s eyes find mine. Eyes as dark as river stones and yet somehow shining, soaking up moonlight. Eyes that widen a fraction as they meet my own.

-p. 13, The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab (egalley)



  1. Both covers are lovely, but I think I prefer Starcrossed a bit more. I think the teaser is cute too.
