Teaser Tuesdays

Since I love reading everyone else's Teaser Tuesdays, I'm going to start participating as well!!

MizB of Should Be Reading hosts the Teaser Tuesdays weekly event
Here are the rules:

* Grab your current read

* Let the book fall open to a random page

* Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12 (which I've modified to 2-4 sentences)

*You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

* Please avoid spoilers!

This week's teaser is:

" She took off her nightgown and then sat up in bed, feeling her heart beating so loudly it sounded as if it might leap through her chest. Through the monitor, she heard Arley's breathing - in, out, in, out, gasp. Outside there was such stillness, such intense quiet. How could people sleep through this kind of quiet?"

- "Kissing Games of the World" by Sandi Kahn Shelton , page 187

Welcome to Tuesday Teasers! They are fun to read, aren't they?

In relation to your teaser, I have found that there is such a thing as too much silence when I'm trying to sleep too. It doesn't happen often, but every once in awhile, I get so uncomfortable that I need to turn on the radio in order to fall asleep. Yeah, I know that has nothing to do with the book you are reading, but it's the first thing that popped in my head. :-)

I know what you mean! I'm really loving the book that I'm reading since the writing is filled with interesting subtleties that the author picks up on, such as that one.
