Teaser Tuesday 3-21-11

22 Mar

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!

This weeks quote is from Two Moon Princess by Carmen Ferreiro-Esteban:

Once we were seated, Tio gave me one of the small boxes he had on his trays and showed me how to drink from it with a bright yellow straw. “It’s chocolate milk,” he said, laughing when Iasked what kind of cow made such a wonderful milk.

I’ve just started this book and will be part of the blog tour coming up in April. Check back April 9 for a full review!

This week’s quote comes from Jennifer Donnelly’s Revolution.

I want him to tell me that it’s okay, it was all just a dumb mistake and he’s fine. But instead of his voice, I hear tires screeching. I turn and see a car bearing down on me.

I’m only 30 pages into this nearly 500 page novel, and am way intimidated. And my library books are due this weekend. Time for so heavy duty reading time.

This Tuesday’s quote comes from Maria V. Snyder’s Magic Study, the sequel to Poison Study:

I glanced at Leif; his alarmed expression had turned to fear. Color leaked from his face as he looked from me to the large indigo-colored man.

What quote would be complete without an indigo-colored man? xD To find out why Leif is alarmed, and just who this mysterious indigo man is, you have to read Magic Study. Because it would ruin all of the fun if I told you. :P

By the way, the picture up top is from a newer edition than the one I’m using. I think I like that cover better. The one I have [currently pictured in the 'Currently Reading' widget to the right] looks more forced and photoshopped. Yelena would never lounge around with wind-blown model hair. Heading up a mysterious moss-covered staircase? That sound more like it.

But maybe I’m the only one who cares. Oh, well. xD

He glanced at the clock as he started rinsing the pasta. “I need to be able to see them so I can find you if something does go wrong.”

From Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr

I really love this book so far. I haven’t been able to put it down for a while. I think I’ll probably finish tomorrow, and I only started it two days ago!
