Teaser Tuesday 12/15/09


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Here's what you do...

  • Grab your current read
  • flip to a random page
  • select 2 (or so) sentences from anywhere on the page
  • try not to include any SPOILERS!
  • make sure you tell the name of book and the author so we can add the book to our TBR pile!
Please feel free to add your Teaser Tuesday link below so it's easy for others to check out your post!

Jake's Reading:
He knew that if he didn't get out of the cold water soon, hypothermia would set in and Bigfoot would be the least of his problems. But he was wrong about this.

Out of the corner of his eye he caught a swift movement to his right and another movement to his left. A moment later, three large fins broke the surface and sliced toward him with deadly speed. "Sharks!" he yelled. "Sharks!"

Gregory's Reading:
The sensation crept up his spine like
cold skeletal fingers. He dropped his hands and looked around, but he didn't have to look hard. A dark figure was standing across the street, his eyes on Vlad.

The Slayer.

Alyssa's Reading:
"Damn the thing, it's too far away," Maycraft said, knowing that he would only be wasting a bullet.

Thaniel raised his own pistol and fired, feeling the recoil jolt all along his arm. He caught it dead in the back, between it's knife-like shoulder blades.

Thaniel flexed his arm. "Not far enough," he said.

Awesome! I'm really interested in the Teasers from 9th Grade Slays and The Haunting of Alaizabel Gray. They're both on my TBR list, but I haven't heard a whole lot about them. The writing seems intriguing though. Thanks guys!

Chioma - Gregory is having a lot of fun with 9th Grade. You should enjoy it! Thanks for the comment about the column. We're trying some new things and appreciate the input. It helps!

Natalie - We're all enjoying these. I've got to say that I'm loving Alaizabel Cray. The story is creative and fun, and the writing is top notch! Hope your exams are going well!

Aaaah! Jake! Just totally go and creep me out with sharks. A friend of mine once read me a passage out of Jaws and I have never quite been able to look at the ocean quite the same way since.

What a great teaser, Gregory. Totally creepy sounding but in a shark free kind of way.

Alyssa, nice pick. I just looked up this book on Good Reads and it sounds interesting. Glad to hear that you are enjoying it.
