TEASER TUESDAYS!

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB from Should Be Reading and anyone can play along!
  • Grab your current read
  • flip to a random page
  • select two teaser sentences from anywhere on that page
  • Please do not include any SPOILERS!!!  Or I will cry big salty tears.
  • And don't forget to include the author and title of the book so we can add it to our ever-growing TBR piles!
My teaser today is from the FANTASTIC book, "The Clockwork Angel" by Cassandra Clare.  This book has been such a great surprise.  You never know when you get an ARC how it is going to read. Normally in the store or on my Kindle I have a good look through and read a few pages before deciding whether or not to buy, but an ARC just arrives.. BAM... deliciously into my mailbox.  Sometimes they arrive and I hear angels singing, as in Behemoth.... other times I look and think, "Huh... normally I wouldn't give this a look at the store, but okay!"  And this one, I probably WOULD have looked at in Chapters, and probably even bought, but had no idea when I took it out of the box that it was going to be THIS GOOD.  Stellar, even.

ANYway, back to the teaser:

"Was it possible that he was the Magister?  Though anyone that looked like that wouldn't need to tie girls up and imprison them in order to get them to marry him."

Uh, HUH.  THAT'S what I'm talking about!  Along with being a great read taking place in a really cool unique world, it totally satisfies my criteria of making a dirty old woman happy.  SCHWING!  Now I think I definately will check our her other series "The Mortal Instruments"  starting with "The City of Bones."

Great teaser and a little disturbing. I mean that in a good way.

I've read two books in The Mortal Instruments trilogy--very good books! I really want to read Clockwork Angel.

Great teaser!

My sentences are from Foundation and Empire by Isaac Asimov.

An intriguing teaser, though it does not sound like something I would like. Thanks for visiting!

I can't wait to read this book! I haven't read The Mortal Instruments series yet. I know Cassandra Clare said that you don't have to read them before Clockwork Angel. But what do you think? By the way...I LOVE your blog. Talk about cool header! I'm a new follower :)

Thanks for all of your comments!

Julie: Welcome to my blog!! And thanks for becoming a new follower! I don't think the two series are linked in any way, but I could be wrong! The Clockwork Angel takes place in the 1800's -ish, and I think the other ones are more modern? I'm not sure! And THANKS (blush) you are sooo sweet!
