Teaser Tuesdays With The Vampire Diaries

Teaser-Tuesdays

The Vampire Diaries Week is filled with all sorts of fun, entertaining and enjoyable events! Reviews of all the books in The Vampire Diaries series, guest blog posts from other Book Bloggers, informational posts about differences between the novels and the TV series, and a closer look at the relationships between Stefan/Elena and Damon/Elena, and much more!

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 the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Teasers

“And so,” she said, gazing into his eyes. “I have had a present made for you.” She took his hand and pressed something into it. When he looked he saw that it was a ring in the same fashion as her own, but larger and heavier, and wrought in silver instead of gold.

“You do not need it yet to face the sun,” she said softly, smiling. “But very soon you will.”

Pride and rapture made him mute. He reached for her hand to kiss it, wanting to take her into his arms right then, even in front of Damon. But Katharine was turning away.

“And for you,” she said, and Stefan thought his ears must be betraying him, for surely the warmth, the fondness in Katherine’s voice could not be for his brother, “for you, also. You will need it very soon as well.”

“Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn about anyone else,” Damon said charmingly. Then he gave one of his ice-cold lightning smiles. “But are you suggesting that this is your choice? Remember, we agreed that when you were more rational, you would make one.”

Elena stared at him. Of course it wasn’t her choice, if he meant romantically. She was wearing the ring Stefan had given her; she and Stefan belonged together.

But then she remembered something else, just a flash: looking up at Damon’s face in the woods and feeling such – such excitement, such affinity with him. As if he understood the flame that burned inside her as nobody else ever could. As if together they could do anything they liked, conquer the world or destroy it; as if they were better than anyone else who had ever lived.

“He’s alive – for sure, Damon? You’re absolutely sure?”

“Positive.”

Without a thought of herself, without a thought of any kind, Elena did what she did best – gave in to impulse. She threw her arms around Damon’s neck and kissed him.

She couldn’t think properly. Damon was gazing at her with wonder and a look she was all too used to seeing – but she couldn’t remember where.

Elena had lost the power to analyse. She was simply basking in the warm glow of being cherished, being held and loved and cared for with an intensity that shook her to the bone.

And when Elena gave of herself, she gave completely. Almost without conscious effort, she arched her head back to expose her throat, and closed her eyes.

Damon gently positioned her head differently, supported it with one hand, and kissed her.

  3. I’m currently reading The Fury, but I absolutely loved that copy-cat line from Gone With the Wind: “But, frankly my dear…”. 😉

  4. Your teaser makes me wish to look out for this novel!

    Here is my Teaser Tuesday: The Noah’s Ark Quest by Boyd Morrison post!

  5. Hello Majanka,

    What some fantastic teaser lines, when you read them all together like that.

    They even make me want to venture into the unchartered territory of the paranormal genre, so watch this space.

    I particularly like the cover of ‘The Awakening And The Struggle’.

    Only downside … if you have been following my blog, you will know how notoriously bad I am at reading a series of books together and in order!!! and this is something that definitely needs to happen with this series of books…..

  6. I’ve noticed all of your teaser lines include Damon. I confess I would also choose lines with him,because he’s my favourite character of TVD. Loved them all!

    • Haha yes…I couldn’t help myself! I went searching for Damon quotes right away, as soon as I opened up the novels. I’m Team Damon all the way, guess it shows even here!

  7. Eliza Rogers says:

    Awesome teasers! And making all those teasers with Damon in them makes them even better!

  8. Oh, awesome teasers!:D It’ s great that you posted teasers from more books, I really enjoyed the reminder. And I still have to read Shadow Souls, but I’ll probably do it when I can get my hands on Midnight as well. And of course, Damon has the best lines! I love him!:D <3
