Teaser Tuesday: The Shadow Society

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!

add it on goodreads
This week's teaser is from The Shadow Society by Marie Rutkoski. I got an ARC on NetGalley but didn't get around to reading it before the release, which was last Tuesday. I'm about 20% in and I love it already!

"Conn shifted. His lips hardened, grew eager. Almost angry. He grasped my fingers, lowered them to his waist, and seized my upper arm. Gripped it to the bone. Yet I didn't pull away. I couldn't. He crushed me close. I strained closer. Our kiss was a deep, dark well, and I fell into it, and never wanted to sea the sun again." (eARC, position 688 of 3583)

I love how Darcy likens the kiss to falling into a well. She's great so far anyway, one of my favorite heroines I've read this year. I'm not telling you what happens immediately after this kiss though, only that it's nothing of the sexy variety ;)

Have you read The Shadow Society or is it on your TBR list? What are you teasing the rest of us with this Tuesday? Link me up in the comments :)


  1. Falling into a well, an interesting concept for a kiss. I haven't read The Shadow Society but it certainly sounds intriguing.
