teaser tuesday (20)

Tuesday, November 17, 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!

“Haly’s earliest memories were of wandering these stacks for hours against the warnings of her elders; cautionary tales of overzealous Libyrarians who lost their way in the endless maze and never returned. But even as a child, Haly had liked the tales the books told better, and in forgotten corridors she discovered worlds of adventure and majesty, and secrets.”

-p. 14 of Pearl North’s Libyrinth

What a wonderful teaser. This will definetly be a book I'm going to have to keep a look out for. Gorgeous cover by the way and I love the title as well.

So beautiful! I had this book out of the library (we're too small to be a libyrary) and had to take it back unread because I ran out of time. Will be getting it again soon, I hope!

Terrific Teaser! I love the image of Haly unable to resist wandering the stacks and discovering the wonder, secrets and fun to be found in between the covers of a book!

Thank you!

Great teaser! Although, getting lost among a maze of bookshelves sounds a little frightening
