Teaser Tuesday (58) and Top Ten Tuesday (5)

TEAser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, just do as 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 any spoilers so as not to ruin the book for others!
Make sure to share the title and the author so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR piles!

First Day on Earth by Cecil Castellucci
My life sucks.
So I shave my head.
--Pg. 23 of "First Day on Earth" by Cecil Castellucci

I've just finished this really short novel (maybe even novella) and it really is something else. It reminded me a lot of Wake by Lisa McMann in the way it was written and the similar situations in the novel. Mal isn't really emo but I liked that passage. That's Chapter 10... all of it.

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
"You can't touch me," I whisper. I'm lying, is what I don't tell him. He can touch me, is what I'll never tell him. Please touch me, is what I want to tell him.
But things happen when people touch me. Strange things. Bad things.
Dead things.
--Pg. 11 of "Shatter Me" by Tahereh Mafi

So this is a bit more than two sentences but I wanted to share something that made sense and represented how this novel is written. I'm not much farther than this but wow, this one really is as good as everyone is saying. Can't wait to continue with it!

What are your teasers this week?
Top Ten Tuesday is a 10's list meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. There is a different question every week and all you have to do is answer their question with your top ten results!
