  1. Teaser Tuesdays

    Tuesday, May 25, 2010

    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 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!
    The Leviathan's body was made from the life threads of a whale, but a hundred of species were tangled into its design, countless creatures, fitting together like the gears of a stopwatch. Flocks of fabricated birds swarmed around it - scouts, fighters, and predators to gather food. Deryn saw message lizards and other beasties scampering across its skin.

    From pages 70 to 71 of Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld.

    This description is accompanied by one of Keith Thompson's fantastic illustrations, showing the Leviathan in marvellous detail.
