Teaser Tuesday: 12/14/10

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Here is my teaser:  "I could see something pale among the trees.  In another minute I recognized it: It was the road leading to the heart of the forest, and the castle."  pg. 123, Beauty by Robin McKinley


  1. This sounds mysterious. I saw this a few minutes ago on another blog post!

  2. I hadn't heard of this book before ... so thanks ;) I hope you enjoy it !! Happy reading !! Here's my teaser if you'd like to take a look at it :

  3. Good teaser, makes me wonder what it's about!

    Stopping by from TT. Here's ours if you get a chance to come over:

  4. Nice one! I think I read this book a few years back. Pretty sure I did because I like fairy tale retellings!

    Here's mine

  5. Hmm...looks interesting. I might have to look more into it. Thanks. I hope that you are enjoying your book. Wanna see what my Teaser for Tuesday is?

  6. Here is my teaser from Out of Touch by Brandon Tietz (Page vii):

    I used to be the kind of guy that would have no problem reading Playboy or Hustler on an airplane, but that me in "the before," and nearly everything has changed since that time in my life a little over a year ago.

    This is not a coming of age story.

    If that's what you're wanting then I suggest you put this down and read something else: something with a happy ending. Like Penthouse.

    Or: the funny pages.

    This is me giving you your official warning.

    Because where this goes, you might not be ready for.

  7. Great teaser and what a beautiful cover on this novel. Your blog looks great - very Christmasy. You can see my teaser here if you'd like to pop by.

  8. Nice teaser and cover.

  9. I love the little kids on the avatar.

    The books intones love into the heart of the forest... very dreamy. Hope to hear that it's a winner :)

    Love love love the festive Xmas cheer here :)

    Mine is from The Ex Boyfriend's Handbook.... think of it as a Brigit Jones Diary ...minus the weight in stones everywhere.

  10. Sorry I need to sayy that, but I cannot really connect to Robin McKinley's writing:(
    Here is my Teaser!
