Teaser Tuesay: The Date by Louise Jensen and Captive by A.J. Grainger

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Books and a Beat. Bloggers choose two 
sentences out of our current read to pique others' curiosity.

Captive by A.J. Grainger
I open my eyes. The cell is flooded with sunlight; the window is a slice of pale blue. Dust particles dance in the sparkling light, pirouetting in a golden line from the window to the opposite wall of the cell, where they seem to converge into shapes. It is like looking into a kaleidoscope.

Dad isn't here. No one is, but me.
Robyn Knollys-Green is an A-list celebrity, famous for being the daughter of one of the world's most powerful men. But not even the paparazzi can find her now.
Robyn begins to realise that she is trapped in a complicated web of global corruption and deceit - and that the strange, melancholy boy who has been tasked with guarding her might not be an enemy after all . . .
A thrilling, well-crafted, ever-relevant story from a talented new voice in YA fiction

Dad is already losing consciousness, his eyes rolling back to milky white, his mouth drooping as the bright-red blood spills out across the bright-white snow.


The Date
The Date by Louise Jensen
Something bad has happened to Alison Taylor.

Her Saturday night started normally. Recently separated from her husband, Ali has been persuaded by her friends to go on a date with a new man. She is ready, she is nervous, she is excited. She is about to take a step into her new future.

By Sunday morning, Ali’s life is unrecognisable. She wakes, and she knows that something is wrong. She is home, she is alone, she is hurt and she has no memory of what happened to her.

Worse still, when she looks in the mirror, Ali doesn’t recognise the face staring back at her. She can’t recognise her friends and family. And she can’t recognise the person who is trying to destroy her…

He raises his gloved hand and slams it against the glass. Slowly, methodically, over and over. Thud-Thud-Thud- until the thumping on the window merges with the thudding inside my head. 

My Thoughts:

I am only 17 percent into this book and already it's pretty intense. I am really liking this book and hope that it keeps up the momentum.
