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!
This week I'm reading Archangel by Sharon Shinn. A real, live book this time, not on my nook! I'm quickly discovering why I like the nook (or any other e-reader brand) so much: reading on the bus early in the morning when it's dark is much, much easier on a nook! Also, you can adjust the font size, whereas with a real book, you're kinda stuck with whatever font size the printer used. All that said, this is a pretty good book. It's a sci-fi/fantasy genre, but very clearly follows the romance novel path as well. That kinda annoyed me at first because if I want to read a romance novel, I'll buy a damn romance novel, but I'm getting into the other aspects of the story now and just ignore the romance formula when I come across it. Or at least I try to. Anyway, here's my teasers for the week from page 196:
She tried to scrabble up, but rough hands pushed her back down. She felt a length of rope pass around her neck and shoulders, and tightened as if a noose were abruptly shortened.
Whoa, I'm not even this far in the book, so it's quite a teaser for me, too! Happy reading and have a great week!
