Teaser Tuesday (61)

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly, bookish meme 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 & 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 Isle of Blood by Rick Yancey.



Jacob Torrance downed his glass of whiskey, smoothed his neatly trimmed mustache, and then proceeded to drum his fingers aggressively on the arm of the wingback chair. His ruby red signet ring, stamped with the motto of the Society (Nil timendum est), sparked and and spat back the light.

Hmmm... I like the sound of that read. Excellent way to find new books, thanks G.E. (and thank for your comments on my blog - you're the first person to notice the look changed!)

Another great teaser, I love the cover.

Almost finished the second book in my Christmas Spirit reading challenge, The Stupidest Angel by Christopher moore is so far proving funny if not a little weird.

Happy reading.

Nisa said...

Well, I'm intrigued. Love these teasers!

An atomic bomb, for all its power, is on about 1 percent efficient ... Antimatter has long been the focus of intense speculation. Physics of the Impossible frpm Michio Kaku.

You too!

Cherie: I like it, too.

Brian: Hope you have a good one. :)

Bess: "Nothing to fear".

Abhishek: Thanks!

Nope, not the Mafia; though part of the story does take place in Europe.

Will check it out!

Susan: I agree--I don't look at lot of the comments on MizB's blog anymore, one because I don't have as much time, and second because my TBR pile is bursting already. :P

You're welcome! I do like your new blog look. :)

Tracy: Glad you enjoyed it!

It sounds like a funny story from the title.

Same to you. :)

Nisa: Agreed. I love reading teasers!

Stephen: Michio Kaku is an interesting physicist; great teaser!

Belle said...

I'm reading Practice Cake by Dalya Moon. "I didn't know what he meant, and the dull ache in my stomach said I didn't want to know. Bucket list? He had to be kidding - he hated people saying bucket list."

The Golden Eagle said...

Belle: I just read a post with an interview of her. :) Interesting teaser--I wonder why he hates it when people say bucket list!

Medeia Sharif said...

Great teaser. I've been meaning to read this series. It looks so good.

The Golden Eagle said...

Medeia: Thanks!

He's a really good writer. :) Though The Monstrumologist series (I've only read one other book by him) does get violent at times.
