It’s time for another “Teaser Tuesday!”
This feature (or meme) is one I discovered on my friend Kim’s site Book Munchies, and is hosted by MizB of the Should Be Reading blog. For those of you who would like to play along at home (or more specifically on your homepage), here is how Teaser Tuesdays work.
– Grab (one of) your current read(s) and open it to a random page
– Share a couple “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!)
—> Now on to the main event!
Once again, I’ve got 2 books to tease today; the first is an oldie-but-goodie. I decided to re-read the series since I never finished the last book (I know, I know, “I can’t believe you never finished it!” But in my defense, I enjoyed it so much I just didn’t want it to be over!) The second came out earlier this year and it just tugged at my heartstrings until I picked it up. Hope you enjoy these teasers!
Eragon (Inheritance Cycle, #1) by Christopher Paolini
Mass Market Paperback, 754 pages
Publisher: Laurel Leaf (Random House Imprint)
Release Date: June 12th, 2007
“Soon the creature was all the way out of the stone. It stayed in place for a moment the skittered into the moonlight.
Eragon recoiled in shock. Standing in front of him, licking off the membrane that encased it, was a dragon.”
My Life With the Walter Boys by Ali Novak
Paperback, 358 pages
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
Release Date: March 1st, 2014
“I looked over what I wrote, and my stomach dropped. This was a joke, right? Katherine didn’t just have twelve kids, but twelve boys! I knew nothing, absolutely nothing about the male species. I went to a private school for girls! How was I ever going to survive living in a house full of boys?”
“During the twenty-minute drive to school, I received a crash course in Boys 101 and decided that maybe the male species wasn’t so different from females after all. To sum it up, the Walters gossiped worse than the girls at my old boarding school.”
