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!
So, I’m currently reading Defending Jacob, and I’d love to do a teaser from that, but I don’t have the book with me right now, so I’m going to do something else. I’ve also been reading this sample of Days of Blood and Starlight (omg), so I’ll post a random teaser from that.
From Days of Blood and Starlight, by Laini Taylor
Book 2 of Daughter of Smoke and Bone
“Angels,” breathed the reporter, who was young and pretty in the usual catalog‑model‑meets‑assassin way of TV reporters. “Did you have any idea?”
Kaz laughed. Predicting it, Zuzana fake‑laughed right along with him. “What, you mean that there really are angels, or that my girlfriend is on their bad side?”
“Ex‑girlfriend,” hissed Zuzana.
He lay there, looking up at the stars and breathing, and as the air passed in and out of him, it settled on him with weight that he was alive.
I heart Zuzana; so glad she’s back in book two. I can’t WAIT to get my hands on this book! If you haven’t read Daughter of Smoke and Bone yet, I cannot recommend it enough. LOVE this series!
OH MAN OH MAN OH MAN, I am so incredibly jealous that you are reading this book, I love smoke and bone soooooo much!!!!!! Awesome teaser!!!!! I’m green with envy :). Here’s my teaser this week: http://www.owl-read-it.blogspot.ca/2012/10/teaser-tuesday-33.html
Hahaha, seriously, I know how you feel! And I’m only reading the short teaser that’s available online in that link I posted. You can read it too! :D
Daughter of Smoke and Bone is on my TBR list but I haven’t had a chance yet. The teaser makes me want to fit it in soon so I’ll be ready for the second book. My teasers are from Full Disclosure by Dee Henderson and The Opposite of Hallelujah by Anna Jarzab. Happy reading!
I hope you get a chance to read it soon! It’s a great series (at least so far). :)
Interesting teaser! Here is my TT post.
How sad is it that I still haven’t read the first book? I know, I know. And I’ve even had a copy for probably a year now sitting on my shelf. I just haven’t been able to pick it up. Hopefully that will change very soon though cause they sound AWESOME :)
OMG I can’t believe you’ve had it so long and haven’t read it yet! I bet if you just read the first page, you’d be dying for me. At least, that’s how it happened for me. :) I hope you get time to read it soon, because it’s so good!
So excited for this book :)
Yeah, me too! :D I keep trying to win an early copy on twitter, but I never get it. At least there’s only a couple more weeks until it’s out!
