15 Teaser Tuesday January 31, 2012



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • 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!
I have two books to tease you with this week. The first is In the Lion's Den by Michael Flynn. It's a space opera which is a newer genre for me.

"He had great fun, the scarred man did. Opening my locks, Poisoning my food. Throwing metal slugs at my head. Planning my ambush and death. What more fun may a man have and live afterward?" ~pg. 57~

It's more than a few sentences but I thought I needed to include the whole thing. The second  book is Hollowland by Amanda Hocking. This book will probably take me awhile to get through mostly because there are zombies in this novel and zombies scare the #% #$% out of me but I've heard great things about this series so I'm going to give it a go.



"This is the way the world ends-not with a bank or a whimper, but with zombies breaking down the back door." ~first sentence in the book~ This is one of the best opening lines to a book that I've read. 

These are my teasers this week, what's yours?

  3. I have to agree -- that's a great opening sentence. Who wouldn't want to read more?

  5. Great teasers! Between the two, I'm most curious about the second...zombies are still a newish character for my reading. ^_^

    1. For me too. Zombies scare me so I've stayed away from that genre. I've heard some really good things about this series though so I thought I'd give it a go.

  7. You have the best teasers! Both of those made me smile. The first more so, but Hollowland's the one that made me more curious to find out more on what the book's about.

    Here’s my teaser.

    1. Thanks Annie. :D Hollowland had one of the best opening lines ever. I'm not usually a zombie person but I'm trying something new.

    2. You're welcome, Marcie. Trying new things is always good - I don't even know if I'm a zombie person or not so I need to try sometime, and it may just have to be Hollowland :). Thanks for stopping by my blog.
