teaser tuesday (23)

Tuesday, December 8, 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!

“The goblins want girls who dream so hard about being pretty their yearning leaves a palpable trail, a scent goblins can follow like sharks on a soft bloom of blood. The girls with hungry eyes who pray each night to wake up as someone else. Urgent, unkissed, wishful girls.”

-p. 13 of Laini Taylor’s Lips Touch: Three Times

What a teaser! Goblins eek! Makes me wonder why the girls wish to wake as someone else?

Wow, that is one teaser charged with some dark sexuality. Wonderful language and imagery. The cover works well with what I've read so far!

I really like the descriptions used here, there is a real sense of desperation on the part of the girls

I HAVE to read Lips Touch! I've seen it mentioned on several blogs, and it looks excellent.

The percentage of truly beautiful people is really very small -- so glad there is a "lid for every pot". (My s.i.l. hates it when I say that.)

Anesthezea said...

Wow, that's kind of chilling in a way. Great teaser!

Marg said...

Excellent teaser.

The Wandering Reader said...

Thanks so much for stopping by my Teaser Tuesday post! :)

Your teaser is excellent; it looks like a fantastic book.

I actually haven't read many books that deal with goblins, so I might pick this one up...

Melissa (My World) said...

Wow! Goblins are really creepy... I will be happy with who I am for now on.

This is a great teaser! I have not heard of this book. I hope you are enjoying it.

If you would like to stop by I have the meme of Where are you... up this week...
