Teaser Tuesday: Shattered Souls

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading!
To participate all you have to do is:

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 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!

I said I would do a TT with Shattered Souls last week and never did…so I decided to do not ONE but TWO awesome teasers this week! This book was EFFIN’ fantastic and I had trouble picking just 2 lines/passages to share with you guys! Shattered Souls is funny and adorable and oh-so-angsty; and I think the teasers I picked show just that! Check 'em out:

Shattered Souls
"Ah, that's Joe Bear," Alden said. "We were inseparable through second grade. He likes milk and animal cookies." ARC PG 110 
He was waiting for me to say good-bye, looking as nervous as I felt. Should I shake his hand or kiss him good night on the cheek? Maybe I should act like Spook [his dog] and just lick his face.

I didn’t know what to do. I had a boyfriend. A great boyfriend, but something in me needed Alden.

“What is this we’re doing?” I asked, shifting my weight from foot to foot.

“I don’t know,” he said. “You tell me.” ARC PG 138

 SQUEEEE!!! Aren’t those awesome!?! GAH! I’m IN LOVE with Alden!! ZEEEP! Be sure to pick up your very own copy of Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey this December!! 

Also, if you want another teaser from Shattered Souls, head on over to my besties blog!!! <--- Jena picked a goodie!!
