Teaser Tuesday!

I do so love games.
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!

My first teaser comes from Wicked Lovely b Melissa Marr.
Page 89:

She fought to keep her voice even, but it never seemed to work with Keenan, today even less than usual. "What do you want?"
"Happiness. Beira to grow a conscience. Forgiveness." He leaned in to kiss her cheek.
 She moved out of reach, stepping in a puddle. "Can't help you."
 "Not even on the forgiveness?" Absently he blew a gentle breeze toward a couple of shivering crackheads, not changing his stride as he did so.
 That little ditty was between the Summer King and the Winter Girl, BTW.
 My second teaser comes from {Catalyst by Laurie Halse Anderson.
 I am not the daughter Rev. Jack Malone wants. He is not the father I need. It's as simple as that. Rev. Dad (Version 4.7) is a faulty operating system, incompatible with my software.
 ...
 Dad and I might be able to tolerate each other if he had a normal job. Everybody argues with their father. But nobody else has to listen to what Jesus would think about MTV, or what He would think about class rankings. Nobody else has to play the role of sweet little preacher's girl in addition to getting into college and ironing clothes and feeding the pets and making sure my brother takes his medicine.
 
 Both of these books are immensely enjoyable. {Catalyst, so far, is another grand slam with incredibly relatable characters, and Wicked Lovely has such a lovely, leisurely pace despite the life or death circumstances.
 
 Back to reading!
  Tootles,
