teaser tuesday (35)

Tuesday, April 27, 2010 |
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!


“Saaski was kneeling at the pond’s edge, leaning over the water like a winged thing just alighted, long fingers braced on the grassy rim, hair like a strange cloud floating about her head. She had never looked less human, despite her apron and dress. Now, said a voice suddenly in Old Bess’s mind, I could do it now and it would be all over.”


-p. 43 of Eloise McGraw’s The Moorchild

Watch out Saaski! There's trouble coming. :-) I am learning about so many different kinds of books that I may not have noticed except for doing Teaser Tuesdays.

Thanks for checking out my review of Brooklyn. BTW, don't know if I mentioned last week, but I love the looks of your blog design.
