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!
This week's teasers (Yup, I had to do two..) is plucked from Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen. This was one of those books that I kept passing up, unsure of the whole take on Robin Hood ~ I love the original story, and I didn't want it to be ruined (shame on me). I'm so glad I finally trusted my gut instinct and picked it up, because I'm having a hard time putting it down.
Standing up were strange. I stood first and looked down. I had been all tangled with him. He had been holding on to me. It felt like something changed before I stood up, but on my own two feet I didn't want nothing to change. It felt like something had shivered loose inside me, and all I wanted to do were keep it in, keep it hidden and deep.
There are many things that I never bothered to guess at. Things like weather, or farming, or feelings - I'm fair useless for those sorts. The one thing I know is sneaking - and knives, I reckon - and that night I focused on all I'm good for.

Happy Reading Everyone :)
