teaser tuesday (5)

Tuesday, August 4, 2009 |
It's Teaser Tuesday, a bookish blog meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Here's how it works:

Grab your current read and let it fall open to a random page. Post two (or more) sentences from that page, along with the title and author. Don’t give anything vital away!

“It might not have been too bad, afterward, if not for two things. The nightmares. And the fact that the cut on my breast wouldn’t heal.

That’s nonsense, of course. If I’d been able to face being honest, there was no way it wasn’t going to be bad.”

-p. 89 of Robin McKinley’s Sunshine

SO many questions! Good teaser. I love the cover, too. I've never read any Robin McKinley.

Great teaser! I have never read anything by Robin McKinley either but I have noticed this book around lately. I have to take a closer look at it to find out what it is all about.

Here's my teaser!

I love love love love this book. I had to buy a second copy because I read the first one too much. It's my comfort book, the one I take with me on long trips just in case I don't feel like reading anything else I brought with me. The funny thing is, I'm not entirely sure why I love this book that much, but I do.
