Teaser Tuesday (1)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB @ 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!

P.S. The button above was created by Jess @ Gone with the Words

My teaser is from Halo by Alexandra Adornetto:

"Midway to the ground, I dropped my arms and allowed the transformation to take place. A blinding light shot from inside my body, shining from every pore and making my skin glow like white hot metal. I saw Xavier shield his eyes and draw back. I felt mmy wings burst from behind my shoulder blades. They exploded through the confines of my dress, tearing the light fabric to ribbons."

I previously read this back in October/November and am re-reading it in preparation for the release of its sequel, Hades. I forgot how much I loved this book <3

Beautiful teaser and yet the transformation sounds rather painful.

Not my usual genre, but it does sound interesting.
