teaser tuesday (43)

Tuesday, June 29, 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!


“It was short, approximately four feet nothing, its skin a pale grey colour, and rough, like old tarmac on a road. Its eyes were big and round, reflective and multifaceted, and from its nose and mouth dribbled a pale brown liquid that looked for all the world like engine oil. I reached the obvious diagnosis.”


-p. 139 of Kate Griffin’s A Madness of Angels

I read this a while ago and I'm still of two or three minds about it. I hope you enjoy it.

The obvious diagnosis? OK, first of all, I'm clueless. But secondly, those two words are great together. Like that teaser.

My teaser is here.

I want to know what the "obvious diagnosis" is! Great teaser :)

Harris Channing said...

I like the narrator's attitude. Not scared or grossed out. Just resigned.

Great teaser!

Becky (Page Turners) said...

If there is an obvious diagnosis to that, that's a bit of a worry. Having said that, it sounds a bit like how I feel about a big night of alochol :-(

Jo said...

Interesting teaser! And I like that book cover --- adding this one to the TBR list! :) My teaser's here

Emma Michaels said...

Great teaser! I hope you will check out mine for Stephanie Meyer's latest novel The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner! Also, if you check back on my blog this Friday I have huge news about the novels I had been submitting to agents/publishers!

Sincerely,
Emma Michaels

Oh...shivers! The cover is as much a draw for me as the teaser I think! Thanks for commenting at CKY...and thanks for posting this!

Zia said...

Wonder what kind of creature or thing that is. Great teaser!

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

This sounds like a great read. I have the first one on my list to get and try out. :) Hope you are enjoying it.

Just in case anyone still cares...the obvious diagnosis was a TROLL.
