Teaser Tuesday, Young Adult / September 11, 2012

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  1. Grab your current read
  2. Open to a random page
  3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page, being careful not to INCLUDE SPOILERS!
  4. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser this week is:

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

He was so real. When it finally happened, when she finally saw him, it didn’t feel like magic at all. It felt like looking into the grave and seeing it look back at her.

“Is that all?” she whispered.

Gansey closed his eyes. “That’s all there is.”

The Raven Boys
by Maggie Stiefvater

 

It’s getting tougher and tougher to pick just one teaser out of my current reads lately, because I’m on a good run, but I thought this little snippet was an appropriate taste of this fantastic book. It shows off the beautiful writing and also sets the haunting mood wonderfully. Gansey and Blue are two characters that interweave throughout the novel and this highlights their first meeting…or does it? So much love for this book already, just one more week to go!

    YES. This book! I need it now. Everyone is going crazy over it and I can't wait any longer!

    Also, I also feel a little spoiled when I have really good luck with books. I guess I get a little superstitious and try not to say it aloud, lest I ~jinx~ myself and wind up picking up a horrible book. 🙂
