Teaser Tuesday (40) + 500 Posts!

Yes, this my 500TH POST!

Just wanted to mention that, and to thank all of you for reading those posts. :)


Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading! This is a fun weekly meme, and the rules are simple:

  • 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!

This week, my teaser is from The Queen of Water by Laura Resau and Maria Virginia Farinango. I find it amazing that it's based on a true story.

Later in the afternoon, before the Doctorita gets home from school, I sneak a book off the shelf and stare at the words, waiting to see what other people see, waiting for some meaning to pop out from the ink, rubbing my eyes and blinking and moving them in and out of focus. What do everyone else's eyes have that mine don't?
-p. 83


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

(Also: I'll try to get around to your blogs and finish the list for "It's All Fun and Games Blogfest" today, but I might not be able to.)

Congratulations, Golden Eagle, on your 500th post! That must be a super great feeling. I can't share a current read right now because I'm in the middle of taking a final for an online class. It's open book but is still challenging and time consuming. I'm looking forward to following your next 500 posts! Woo hoo! good for you!

Charles Gramlich said...

I think I'm getting close to a 1000. how could that be?

The Golden Eagle said...

LynNerd: Thank you! :)

Good luck with your final!

Laila: Thank you!

Maybe Alex will host another blogfest; he has done a lot of them! :D

Dana: I like the cover, too.

Thank you!

Medeia: Thanks!

It's a good book; and the culture is very different from the usual read. Not many YA novels are set in Chile!

I'm glad you enjoy my posts. :)

Old Kitty: Thank you!

The character's voice is like that throughout the book. It's very interesting to read!

Alex: Thanks!

I post a lot; even more when I first started blogging. :P

Simon: Yup! I can hardly believe it. A thousand feels like a huge number at this point.

Milli: Thank you!

I will do my best to. :D

Jules: Thank you! :)

I'm glad you liked the teaser!

Lynda: Thanks!

It's a good story; and it's amazing to me that one of the co-authors is the person the book is based on.

Su: Thank you! :)

Cheryl: It's a great blogfest. :D

Thank you!

You'll get there, I'm sure. ;)

Reana: Thank you!

I will email as soon as I can. :)

Emily: Thank you!

Charles: 1000?! Those are a lot of posts!

Lots of blogging? :)
