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?
