Teaser Tuesday (34)

Can you believe this will be my last Teaser Tuesday until May 3rd? I'm going to miss this meme--but the A-Z Blogging Challenge promises to be a lot of fun, too.

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.

Rules for participating:

  • 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser is from The Shadow Project by Herbie Brennan--he's recently become one of my favorite authors, since I love the Faerie Wars Series.

"They're remarkable works," Sir Roland said as they entered the library. "We have volumes dating back to the fifteenth, sixteenth centuries, sometimes even earlier. There's a drawer over there that contains a Roman scroll from the time of Emperor Claudius. And they all have one thing in common--"
   "They all give you the creeps?" Danny suggested.
-p. 75


Have a teaser, or thoughts on a book you're reading? Feel free to leave them in the comments! :)

Ha ha, love it!

Here's mine:

"They are not here, Your Majesty," Galen said, bowing. He wished he didn't have to explain everything in front of an audience.
"Someone has taken them hostage, sire," the captain blurted out. "This person claims he knows who."
-P. 112
Princess of the Midnight Ball, by Jessica Day George

Good tease,

It looks like it could be a good read,

I'm in A-Z, too. It is going to be INSANE!

Michael Di Gesu said...

Oh, btw...

Don't forget to HP entry for tomorrow... I'm really looking forward to reading yours.

Lori said...

I hope that you are enjoying your book. Check out my Teaser for Tuesday.

My current read is The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein (studying to use for a tutoring lesson).

"And he would gather her leaves,
And make them into crowns to play king of the forest."

Consider it more two sentences that two pages. Great idea!

Rogue Mutt said...

No reason you couldn't do two entries in one day, is there?

Alice Audrey said...

LOL - give the creeps. Great teaser. My teaser is here.

Jen Daiker said...

Ooo!!! Love this one!!!

So excited to hear that you're joining in the A-Z fun as a co-host I'm still in shock at the numger of participants that joined!!!!

Sorry I've been distant! I still heart you!!

Going to miss teaser Tuesday. *sigh* Here's mine:

Misha said...

Love it. Hehehe I'm sort of not reading at the moment. (Still stuck in the middle of Oliver Twist, but haven't touched it since the weekend I started with Hunger Games.)

Maybe I'll add something next time. :-)

Sun Singer said...

Your last teaser for a while is a fun one to read.

Michelle Merrill said...

Ooh, that was a great tease. Sounds like an interesting book. I'm not reading anything at the moment, but my friend just dropped by with a armful of books for me to devour!

Even though I'm not doing the A-Z challenge, I'm excited to read everyone's entries.

Helen Ginger said...

Love the title of the book. It by itself is a teaser!

Donea Lee said...

Wow - sounds like an interesting book!

Here's one from mine:

"Maybe she's a reincarnation," he suggested. "It's too big a coincidence, the boat and her name." - pg. 177 of OR Melling's The Summer King

Julie @ Knitting and Sundries said...

I read this! It was a really fun one! :) Enjoy and thanks for sharing!

Angela Ackerman said...

Orchid said...

Nice teaser! I love book teaser that mention books.


Hannah Kincade said...

Thanks for teasing this one. I haven't heard of it. It is now on my list.

smellincoffee said...

It's an impressive library that still has scrolls. :-D I doubt the public can peruse them at will, though...and even if they could, it's not like they could read classical Latin or Greek!

Arlee Bird said...

You could still do Teaser Tuesday while doing A to Z if you had a book title that started with the letter of that day. But then again I guess you'd be cross visiting a lot of bloggers not doing A to Z.

Old books and manuscripts can be kind of creepy sometimes.

Wish I had a teaser to offer up but I'm not reading anything this week.


Summer Ross said...

Aww now I want to know what they all have in common. Great teaser.

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Oh, nice! Looks like a fun book.

I heard about the A-Z challenge. Holy catfish, it's huge!

Jemi Fraser said...

Sounds like a fun read. Here's mine -- Return the Heart by TK Richardson...

My eyes lit up as the rest of them froze. "They're here."

B's Mom said...

I'm doing to A to Z challenge also. I'm looking forward to hearing what you have to say.

Misha said...

Love the teaser! I had not heard of the book before. But it sounds like an interesting book.
