Teaser Tuesday #10 (June 16): Wash Me Away by Wendy Owens

Wash Me AwayQuite late here, but better late than never, right? For today’s Teaser Tuesday (a meme hosted by A Daily Rhythm), I have a teaser from Wash Me Away by Wendy Owens.

“I think I hear someone; we should get back to my bedroom,” I lie. I just don’t want her touching my mother’s dress anymore. A pain twists in my chest when I watch Julia haphazardly toss the dress back into the trunk. She slams it shut, rips the hat off, and we’re down the stairs and in my room in a matter of seconds. Julia is panting, watching me wide-eyed.

I peek out of the door and pretend I’m looking for someone, then quickly close it behind me. I think it was my uncle. That was close,” I lie again.

So that’s it for this week’s Teaser Tuesday! Tell me what you thought of this quote in the comments below!

Proof of Forever by Lexa Hillyer | Book Review

(Stand-Alone)

Published: June 2nd 2015

Synopsis:

Before: It was the perfect summer of first kisses, skinny-dipping, and bonfires by the lake. Joy, Tali, Luce, and Zoe knew their final summer at Camp Okahatchee would come to an end, but they swore they’d stay friends.

After: Now, two years later, their bond has faded along with those memories.

Then: That is, until the fateful flash of a photo booth camera transports the four of them back in time, to the summer they were fifteen—the summer everything changed.

Now: The girls must recreate the past in order to return to the present. As they live through their second-chance summer, the mystery behind their lost friendship unravels, and a dark secret threatens to tear the girls apart all over again.

Always: Summers end. But this one will change them forever.

Hello! It’s Top 10 Tuesday time, a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is ten books on our TBR for this summer. There was another summer-related topic a few weeks back, (I believe it was great beach reads), so those books also count for books on my summer TBR. However, here’s a list of books I want to read that I haven’t mentioned on that list:
