Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading and ANYONE CAN PLAY ALONG!
  • grab your current read
  • flip to a random page
  • select 2 teaser sentences from anywhere on that page
  • TRY NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!  (Or you will recieve 50 lashes with a wet noodle.. I'm just sayin'.)
  • Please do include the name of the book and the author.
My teaser is from The Clockword Angel by Cassandra Clare.  I am ALMOST done this book, and I have to admit I do NOT want it to end!  In fact I was plowing through it and then I purposefully slowed down to savour every word.  I LOVE it.  I can't believe I have to wait AN ENTIRE YEAR for the next one!  Sigh.  At least she doesn't pull a "Gabaldon" and make us wait for 3 or 4 YEARS until the next installment.  The next book on my roster is to finish The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton.  I actually was loving it but then somehow life got busy and I put it down a few months ago.  I am getting the ARC for her next one called The Distant Hours, so I thought I should get the first one done and review it like I was supposed to!

ANYway, without further adieu:

"You are not a monster," said Jem.  "Or a coward.  On the contrary, I was quite impressed by the way you shot at de Quincey.  You would almost certainly have killed him if there'd been any more bullets in the gun."

It probably was not meant to be funny, but it made me chuckle. My TT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/09/teaser-tuesdays-pretty-little-things.html

This made me smile. I like snippets of human even if the tone of the book is dark. Thanks for visiting my teaser.

I have been seeing this book more and more lately! I'm very curious.
Great teaser too.

wow...this sounds really nice and I LOVE the cover...I know one's not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but honestly...who doesn't?? It's the first thing you see.

Excellent teaser! Haven't heard of this one before - glad you're liking it. I just recently read The Forgotten Garden, too - had mixed emotions about it, but in general thought it was pretty good. But very long!

Kristin said...

Tiina: Hey thanks for stopping by! I checked out your TT and am now a follower of your blog!

Jennifer: Actually it IS kind of funny! So you were right on. The two characters in the teaser have that kind of relationship. It's just such a great read.

E.J.: I had heard of Paranormalcy in the blogosphere but was not sure what it was about. It sounds hilarious! Is the whole book like that?

Shelley: The whole book is like that, just the right amount of creepy and funny and suspenseful. Very easy to read and hard to put down!

Natalie: Hey you! Thanks for stopping by my TT!!! Love all of your FB posts, AND thank you so much for supporting Ellie's blog! :0)

Jessie: Have you read her other series? I've heard it's pretty great too!

Alice: Hey Alice! THanks for the follow back! And for stopping by. :0)

Lu: Thanks for stopping by!

Chrissie: I know, now that I have been posting about this one, I am hearing all about her City of Glass series (which I have always been curious about) so now I HAVE to read them!

Blackeyeddog: Oh TOTALLY! I ALWAYS judge a book by it's cover. And thank God I get some books via publishers because sometimes the covers do not appeal to me and I would have never read them otherwise, and they turned out to be great reads! Sad but true. LOL!

jlshall: Hi there! Thanks so much for stopping by. Do you think you will read Kate Morton's new book when it comes out?

Kristin: Same goes for you! :0)

CMash: Thanks for stopping by and the reply to my comment on your blog! :)

Kathy: Is your TBR pile as big as mine? Probably! One of the side effects of being a book lover AND blogger, eh? Thanks for stopping by!

Book Sake: Believe me when I tell you.. IT REALLY IS A GREAT READ! Thanks for stopping by!

JuJu: HEY!!!! Thanks for such a warm welcome back! I'm a big user of the word "WOOT"!!! Are you on FB? If you are can you add me? I'll see if your blog is on there as well. You gave me a giant smile this morning! THANKS! :0)

Karen and Gerard: I LOVE that you BOTH run your blog. Very cool! And I have added you to my roll! And thank you so much for the page rank compliment. When I first checked my ranking I was a 3, but slowy and surely it changed. My goal is to be a 5! :0)

Gina: Thanks for your kind words AND for stopping by, AND for following me!!! :0)

I love the defining moment... he would have killed him if there were more bullets. Great teaser :)

Have to read this set one day....
I really like the look of your avatar with the girl with the books on her head and the cat. Very cool.

Hope the book is great. I keep reading bonafide plus / amazing reviews.

I have thoroughly enjoyed Cassandra Clare's other books and so I am very much looking forward to this one!
