Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday January 14th 2014

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 the page
~BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! ( make sure that what you share doesn't give away 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'm trying to read several books at once this week. I know lots of people can do it so I'm going to try. A chapter or two per day is my goal but we will see. 

I'm trying to finish this one today. 
Awake at Dawn by C.C. Hunter (Goodreads

The ghost rested a hand on Kylie’s foot. Even beneath the blanket, the icy chill took hold. “You have the ability to stop it. Please make it stop.”

“Make what stop? Has it already started?” Kylie asked, her chest tightening.
Was someone she loved already suffering? Kidnapped and being tortured by the Blood Brothers, or something even worse?
“Damn it, answer me!” Kylie yelled. “Or at least give me a vision I can understand. I don’t even care how scary it is, just do it.”
The one of the funeral still made no sense.

I'm also starting this one today. I have plans to read a chapter or two per day. 
Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin (Goodreads

When the blades touched, the steel shattered.

A scream echoed through the forest night, and the longsword shivered into a hundred brittle pieces, the shards scattering like a rain of needles. Royce went to his knees, shrieking, and covered his eyes. Blood welled between his fingers.
The watchers moved forward together, as if some signal had been given. Swords rose and fell, al in a deathly silence. It was cold butchery. The pale blades sliced through ringmail as if it were silk. Will closed his eyes. Far beneath him, he heard their voices and laughter sharp as icicles.
When he found the courage to look again, a long time had passed, and the ridge below was empty.

I'm not very far in but sounds like an epic novel. (long too) 

What are you reading? What's your teaser?


  1. Nice teasers! I have a friend who loves Game of Thrones but I haven't read it. That teaser sounds really good though so maybe I'll give it a try :)

  2. LOL. I'm currently reading a craft book for class. No teasers there ;)
