teaser tuesday (59)

Tuesday, January 25, 2011 |
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!


“‘When Mr. Hirst pulled the pistol, I tried to take it from him.’


Deryn shut her eyes. Striking an officer – another hanging offense.


‘Very sensible of you,’ Dr. Barlow said. ‘This ship won’t get very far without its master of mechaniks, will it?’”


p. 48 of Scott Westerfeld’s Behemoth

I have both Leviathan and Behemoth here to read! Sounds like I really should try a bit harder!

I am sharing two teasers this week.

I love Scott Westerfeld's writing. I have Leviathan sitting on my TBR shelf. I should really read that one so I can dive into this one. Lol!

Ah, neat. You're reading Westerfeld. I'm looking forward to reading your review, as I have yet to read that one.

Happy Teaser Tuesday!!! My teaser this week is for Mistwood by Leah Cypess which is currently discount on Amazon for only $6.50 for a new hardcover copy!!! I posted a link to the price! Finally, a great fantasy book that really feels like the older fantasy novels written by favorites like Tamora Pierce and Sharon Shinn!

Sincerely,
Emma Michaels

I loved the first book, but had to turn this one back in to the library before I had time to read more than a few pages. I put it on hold though, so hopefully I'll be able to read it soon.

Oh, good teaser. Leaves me wondering what's going on.

Both Leviathan and Behemoth are really great - I think they're the best that Westerfeld has ever done, and I've fallen completely in love with Deryn. Can't wait for the final book!
