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 (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 to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

As I am currently still in the midst of reading Book 5 of The Mortal Instruments and have yet to finish it, my post today will be brief. Just a small tease to keep you entertained!
City of Lost Souls
The shock of her words was like a pulse of energy zipping through his body, setting his nerves on fire. "You're not serious."
"Sure I am." She started to unbutton the shirt she was wearing, baring her throat, her collarbone, the tracery of faint veins visible beneath her pale skin. The shirt fell open. Her blue bra covered a lot more than many bikinis might, but Simon still felt his mouth go dry. Her ruby flashed like a red stoplight below her collarbone. Isabelle.As if reading his mind, she reached up and drew her hair back, draping it over one shoulder, leaving the side of her throat naked. "Don't you want...?"
He caught her wrist. "Isabelle, don't," he said urgently. "I can't control myself..."
Oh! Don't you like a guy who can't control himself?
For those of you who are well acquainted with this book, (and for those of you who aren't) you will notice that this scene does not belong to Jace and Clary, but to my second favorite couple in this story, Simon and Isabelle.
For my thoughts on this series and a swoon to die for, please pop back Thursday.
