Teaser Tuesday: Before I Wake by Rachel Vincent

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Should Be Reading. Anyone can play, and the rules are simple:
• 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 GOT BEFORE I WAKE TODAY!! This is thanks to the super fantastical Rachel over at Fiktshun, and her super awesome Soul Screamers Reading Challenge.

Anyway, I'm about a third of the way through already, and there are SO MANY awesome quotes!! It was hard for me to pick ;P

     "I can't believe they even bothered filling that faculty position again. They might as well rename the class Defense Against the Dark Arts. I mean, seriously, who would answer an ad for this job?" 
-Page 27

     "She just got out of the hospital. Why don't you go gossip behind her back, like decent people?" 
-Page 31


And because I am weak (CAUTION--IF I DIE SPOILERS):

     "The school sent you flowers. I'm sure that totally makes up for the fact that they hired the psychotic, soul-stealing pedophile who murdered you in your own home." 
-Page 100
 I shall attempt to use some self-control and stop there. I had a couple awesome lines from a certain awesome reaper, but they're kinda spoilery, so...

What are you reading this week? Leave me your TT links!!



  1. Awesome! I have read to 90% and so far I think I have highlighted 100 quotes in my kindle! It's madness! LOL
    My TT

    1. Lol! I don't have it on Kindle, or I probably would, too! I typed a bunch into my phone on a memo :D

  2. I too love BIW. You will have to let me know what you think. Friends of mine have either not read it or are just getting into it and I'm dying to talk about this book. :-) there are so many good quotes, especially Tod quotes. If you've not gotten there yet Chapter. 11 has some swoon worthy quotes from our favorite reaper. I love Emma too. She is great. She's like the archetypal best friend. Her Harry potter reference was classic and she's got several more quotes that made me laugh out loud. As does Sabine who is just plain amusing. And who I can't help but like. At first I didn't like her. But her unflinching honesty has granted her respect. That and her unwavering devotion to Nash, even when he doesn't deserve it. I could go on to Nash and Kaylee and circle back around to analyze tod some more but I won't want to take your attention away from the book. Happy reading. If you'd like to reply my twitter name is MissSioban and if that doesnt work my email is sfl248@nyu.edu

    1. AHHH yes!! I stayed up wayyy too late last night reading it. OH, TOD. And yes. Chapter 11! I had to look to see what part that was, but I know exactly what you're talking about :D

      And I loved Emma. I was honestly laughing out loud at some of the stuff she said. SABINE. Oh my gosh, she's awesome as well!

      Thanks for taking the time to comment, I love seeing people's opinions!

  3. I really love how excited you are! I haven't read this series (I read another of her series and wasn't a fan) but the teasers you shared are fun!

    1. I haven't read any of her other series, lol, but I want to! Soul Screamers are absolutely fantastic, in my opinion, and I highly recommend them!
