My teaser:

For a brief moment, time stood still. Not really still. It sort of danced and shimmered in place, the lights flickering and dimming before reappearing. If that moment had been a real thing, it would've been a butterfly, flapping and fluttering toward the sun.

~pg. 236 in Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

My thoughts:

In this book , the imagery is amazing! I have felt moments like these, perhaps even many times but wouldn't attempt to describe them - only feel them and let them pass. This is an incredible description that I will ponder as it will forever be fused into my memory now.

Here’s mine.

She is pure Alice in Wonderland, and her appearance and demeanor are a nicely judged mix of the Red Queen and a flamingo.
