Teaser Tuesday is a weekly event hosted by Should Be Reading, which asks you to grab your current read, open to a random page, and share two teaser sentences.
This week’s teaser comes from Grasping at Eternity by Karen Amanda Hooper.
Leave it to Maryah Woodsen to break the one rule that will screw up eternity: Never erase your memories.
Before entering this life, Maryah did the unthinkable—she erased. Now, at seventeen years old, she’s clueless that her new adoptive family has known her for centuries, that they are perpetually reincarnated souls, and that they have supernatural abilities. Oh, and she’s supposed to love (not despise) Nathan, the green-eyed daredevil who saved her life.
Nathan is convinced his family’s plan to spark Maryah’s memory is hopeless, but his love for her is undying. After spending (and remembering) so many lifetimes together, being around an empty version of his soulmate is heart shattering. He hates acting like a stalker, but has no choice because the evil outcast who murdered Maryah in their last lifetime is still after her.
While Maryah’s hunter inches closer, she and Nathan make assumptions and hide secrets that rip them further apart. Maryah has to believe in the magic within her, Nathan must have faith in the power of their love, and both need to grasp onto the truth before they lose each other forever—and discover just how lonely eternity can be.
“For the first time since my nightmare night, I closed my eyes and made a wish.
I wish to find my true love, and for us to last forever.”

Me too. It sounds a little bit like something out of a Disney movie!
Thanks for the link! 🙂
This sounds like such a fun read! It’s also nice that it’s a bit of a fresh take on the whole supernatural genre. Thanks for sharing this!
I’m really enjoying it! It’s definitely a welcome change from vampires, werewolves, fallen angels, and all of the other common paranormal concepts.
That’s a lovely cover. The quote is sweet, too.
Isn’t it pretty? I’m really tempted to buy a copy, just for the cover.
Thanks for the link!
I’ve never actually read the synopsis for this, though I’ve seen the book around. It sounds interesting! Great teaser, too! 🙂
Here’s my teaser! 🙂
It was really good – and different from most paranormal books, which is nice.
Thanks for the link! 🙂
