teaser tuesday (54)

Tuesday, September 21, 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!


“He trembled as he stared at her, as if he didn’t quite recognize her for what she was. And then, quite suddenly, she saw sense come into his gaze, and of course, he did recognize her, and passed a hand over his pale face.”


-p. 165 of Mercedes Lackey’s Phoenix and Ashes [re-reading this for the umpteenth time]

Somewhere in my books, I have a copy of this. I really need to read it...I love Mercedes Lackey. One of my favorites in this series was The Fire Rose, but I loved them all. :)

Here's my teaser: The Red Tree by Caitlin R Kiernan

This is totally of topic, but my six year old son found your business card and loves it! He insists that it is his book mark. I'm just thrilled that he wants me to read to him. :)

Alyce said...

That should have been "off topic." I guess I was typing too fast.

Tender and clever. I want more :)

My teaser this week is super late and therefore more of a Thursday Teaser :)

BURIED IN BOOKS said...

I just know I'm not telling you anything you don't know, but I was looking up the man that wants to ban some books and wrote a newspaper article about it on google. Anyway, I looked at an author that spoke out against him very eloquently and she's a Zombie book writer! Do you know Michele Lee? Her website is http://www.michelelee.net
One of her books is Rot and another is called Dark Futures.
Then she shows some other authors books.

Just thought you might like to know and she has a fun video about gamer girls to the tune of Katie Perry's California Girls.

Have a great Monday! And you still haven't recommended what Zombie book I should start with!

Heather: I'd suggest starting with the short stories in Zombies vs. Unicorns. There are several different types (funny, serious, straight horror), and they'll give you a handle on what you prefer in the genre. Plus, they're quick reads. Enjoy!
