Teaser Tuesdays #159 – October 3rd: The Rules Of Magic

TEASER TUESDAYS is a weekly book meme hosted at The Purple Booker. To participate, just open the book you are currently reading to a random page, and choose two ‘teaser’ sentences from somewhere on that page. (no spoilers!)

I’m currently reading one of my last pending ARCs The Rules Of Magic by Alice Hoffman. It’s still early days, so I don’t have much to say about it… I confess I didn’t read Practical Magic, so we’ll see how things go I guess. Also, one of the reasons I’m not that far into it yet is that I caught the crochet bug and I’m starting to become seriously addicted to it. 😀

My teaser (2%):

“Yet no matter how Susanna tried to enforce these rules, the children continued to thwart her. They insisted upon being unusual.”

Teaser Tuesdays #158 – September 26th: Bentwhistle The Dragon

TEASER TUESDAYS is a weekly book meme hosted at The Purple Booker. To participate, just open the book you are currently reading to a random page, and choose two ‘teaser’ sentences from somewhere on that page. (no spoilers!)

I’ve been meaning to pick up this ARC for ages now… I always love dragon stories so I’ve been looking forward to this one. Bentwhistle The Dragon: A Threat From The Past by Paul Cude is the first book of a YA fantasy series. I’m still not that far into the story, so there isn’t much to say yet… Other than that the pace seems to be quite slow, probably partly due to the extensive descriptions of the dragons and their world. I’m looking forward to see what the rest of the story will bring though.

My teaser (12%):

“Reality flooded back as the walkway he was on started to widen and fill up with dragons of all shapes and sizes. Focused firmly on not bumping into any of them, he marvelled at the surrounding area, wondering just what the humans on the surface would make of the secret world just beneath their feet.”

Teaser Tuesdays #157 – September 19th: It

TEASER TUESDAYS is a weekly book meme hosted at The Purple Booker. To participate, just open the book you are currently reading to a random page, and choose two ‘teaser’ sentences from somewhere on that page. (no spoilers!)

I’m sure I’m not the only one doing this, but I thought the movie coming out was a good excuse to finally tackle this monster. Plus, I still needed a 800+ pages book to complete a challenge and this one seems to be doing the trick abundantly. xD I’ll be honest I have not a clue what It will exactly be about and I like it that way… I’m only a few pages in, but I’m definitely hoping to finish it within the next month or so. Stephen King, bring it on!

My teaser (1%):

“Smells of dirt and wet and long-gone vegetables would merge into one unmistakable ineluctable smell, the smell of the monster, the apotheosis of all monsters. It was the smell of something for which he had no name: the smell of It, crouched and lurking and ready to spring.”

Teaser Tuesdays #156 – September 12th: The Dollmaker Of Krakow

TEASER TUESDAYS is a weekly book meme hosted at The Purple Booker. To participate, just open the book you are currently reading to a random page, and choose two ‘teaser’ sentences from somewhere on that page. (no spoilers!)

I’m currently reading one of my last pending Netgalley ARCs: The Dollmaker Of Krakow by R.M. Romero. This Middle Grade story set during WWII has been compared to The Boy In The Striped Pajamas (one of my all time favorites) and not only has a stunning cover but also sounds wonderful. I’m not that far into it yet, but I’m having a feeling it’s going to be a fast read!

My teaser (3%):

“ It took only a single touch for her to realize that the crack that had raced up her cheek in the Land of the Dolls was gone. When she lowered her arm, her fingers were smudged with blush-pink paint that smelled fresh.”

Teaser Tuesdays #155 – September 5th: The Surrogate

TEASER TUESDAYS is a weekly book meme hosted at The Purple Booker. To participate, just open the book you are currently reading to a random page, and choose two ‘teaser’ sentences from somewhere on that page. (no spoilers!)

I’m SO excited to be reading one of my most anticipated releases this year right now! The Surrogate by Louise Jensen… I’ve only just started reading it, but what I’ve seen is GOOD. I can’t wait to read more of it today, and if I can find the time I’ll most likely finish it in one sitting. 😀

My teaser (2%):

“She wraps her arms around herself as though she is cold, despite this being the warmest May on record for years. Cherry blossom twirls around her ankles like confetti, but there will be no happily ever after for the occupants of this house, the sense of tragedy already seeping into its red bricks.”

Teaser Tuesdays #154 – August 29th: Monsters Of Men

TEASER TUESDAYS is a weekly book meme hosted at The Purple Booker. To participate, just open the book you are currently reading to a random page, and choose two ‘teaser’ sentences from somewhere on that page. (no spoilers!)

I’m finally reading the final book of the Chaos Walking trilogy (most likely I will finish it today), and I’m having mixed feelings about Monsters Of Men right now. Mostly due to the new POV of ‘The Return‘ which I’m finding rather confusing instead of intriguing, and a little because of the same slang that has been bothering me since the beginning. It’s not that I don’t like it, but I don’t LOVE love it either. Maybe I just have myself to blame for picking up A Monster Calls first and therefore destroying any chance for Patrick Ness‘  other books to live up to it??? 😉

My teaser (26%):

“The Sky left me today, to be alone, as the Sky occasionally does. It is a need of the Sky, of any Sky.

But he returned with new words.

So where did he hear them?”

TEASER TUESDAYS is a weekly book meme hosted at The Purple Booker. To participate, just open the book you are currently reading to a random page, and choose two ‘teaser’ sentences from somewhere on that page. (no spoilers!)

I’m currently reading Midnight At The Bright Ideas Bookstore by Matthew Sullivan, another pending Netgalley title and one I’m really excited about finally reading. I love books about books! I’m not all that far into the story yet, but I definitely like the writing style so far and can’t wait to further dive into this story.

My teaser (17%):

“I guess it just bugs me to be paying so little, he added. Something’s wrong in the air, you know, when a book costs less than a bullet. Or a Coke. Values-wise.”
