Teaser Tuesday (1/26/10)


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 a few 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 link below so it's easy for others to check out your posts!

Jake is Reading...



Blood Ninja by Nick Lake page 29

The wicked barbed steel of a shuriken whined through the air past Taro's head, nicking his ear. He fired an arrow that went wide, just as the good Ninja's blade struck in front of him, as quick and lethal as a snake, gutting a man who had been about to stab him with a dagger. Taro felt that the world and the air surrounding him had grown sharp edges, and waited only for him to fall on them.




Gregory is Reading...
The Faceless Ones by Derek Landy page 221

There was a moment of silence. "You're such an unbelievable show-off."

"I learned it all from you."

Skulduggery got out of the chair and took the journal from her. "I don't show off. I merely demonstrate by abilities at opportune times."





Alyssa is reading...

Ice by Sarah Beth Durst page 223


The vines had absorbed her pack, mukluks and all, like an amoeba. She wasn't likely to forget that. How was she supposed to escape from a living prison when a magical being was the jailer and she had no equipment and no supplies?

I'm a bit behind the times and am currently reading Scott Westerfeld's Uglies. Not sure I'm lovin it that much. I'm over half way through and finally things are starting to happen. The choices you have listed definitely sound more exciting.

Awesome teasers! I really like the sound of them all (especially the Ninja book, because it has a NINJA in it---which is just awesome)!

Can't wait to see the reviews :)

Great teasers!
Jake, Blood Ninja sounds exciting. Gregory, Skulduggery sounds like quite the witty guy and Ice is currently sitting on my shelf, so I can't wait to hear your opinion of it Alyssa.

BreiaB said...

They all sound like good books, but if I had to pick one right now I'd go for The Faceless Ones by Derek Landy. Looks like my kind of book.

Very clever idea. Blood Ninja and Ice look like very interesting reads.

Kristen said...

Great teaser!

I've been meaning to read Ice lately.

Justine said...

Oooh, Ice. I want to read that one so badly. Though the cover doesn't capture my attention, the teaser kind of makes me intrigued :D

Kathy Martin said...

Teaser Tuesday is a fun idea. But I'm having trouble figuring our how to open my Kindle to a random page. I guess I need a Tuesday when I'm reading a print book.

I keep looking at Ice with longing but my TBR stack is so tall I don't dare add anything else until I whittle it down. Luckily, ice is in my HS Media Center so I have easy access to it.
