Teaser Tuesday (12): Red Glove

This teaser is for all those who have also read Cassie Clare's Mortal Instruments series and who know that Cassie and Holly are critique parterns and therefore borrowing one another's characters for a few sentences is ok!

Title: Red Glove
Author: Holly Black


"That stoner dude, Jace, says he hooked up with someone over the summer," Kevin whispers. "But I hear all the pictures he's showing around are really pictures of his half sister. Fifty bucks says there's no girlfriend."
"Find someone to be that he did hook up or does have a girlfriend and I'll give you the odds," I say. "The house doesn't bet."

(eGalley)

I had a little chuckle when I read those lines :-)
If you haven't read the Mortal Instruments you won't get why (so go read them! They're awesome!).


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 "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 and author too so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!

I love that they use characters from each other in their stories. I like both of these authors!

I had no idea that there was book swapping happening with the characters! Going to have to check this out now as I thoroughly enjoyed the Mortal Instruments series.

Here's my teaser for this week.
