Teaser Tuesday! (18)

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 away too much! 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 teaser!

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

"Snow and stone and ghostlight, Karou's own footsteps and the feather of steam from her coffee mug, and she was alone and adrift in mundane thoughts: school, errands. The occasional cheek-chew of bitterness when a pang of heartache intruded, as pangs of heartache will, but she pushed them aside, resolute, ready to be done with all that." p. 1

A teaser from the first page because I'm only just, just, just starting this one and I'm too afraid of accidently spoiling myself! Already Taylor's writing is gorgeous!

So what teaser have you shared?

  1. Great teaser! I think that virtually any sentence from that book could be pulled & be a great teaser. A fantastic book. One of my favorites ever! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

  2. I Cannot WAIT to read this book, and you've grabbed an awesome teaser! I was going to wait until payday to pick this one up; but I'm not sure if I can wait that long! I hope you're enjoying it.

  3. I didn't want to spoil myself with my teaser read either, so I took from the 2nd page where the book starts. But I loved it!

    I also love your teaser. That book definitely looks great! I hope you enjoy it. :)

    My teaser is from the wonderful and mysterious novel The Night Circus.
