  1. Teaser Tuesdays

    Tuesday, June 22, 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!
    At first Galinda thought what she saw was some trick of the light, a reflection off the adjacent buildings covered in vines and flatmoss. But as Elphaba moved forward, lugging her own carpet bags, it became obvious that she was was green. A hatchet-faced girl with putrescent green skinand long, foreign-looking black hair.

    From page 91 of Wicked by Gregory Maguire.

    My tickets to go see the musical arrived in the mail yesterday! I am so excited!

      I saw Wicked in Chicago and then my mom bought me the book but I haven't read it! That was three years ago, shame on me! I've seen it pop up on a few blogs lately, I think it's a sign I need to pick it up! Here's mine from The Madness of Lord Ian MacKenzie.

      I read the book ages ago but felt he completely missed the point with how he depicted Oz. He should have just made up his own fantasy world.

      My teaser this week is from How to Train Your Dragon.

    13. Green, huh. Sounds great! :) Great teaser. I am curious about this book. I have heard it around the sphere here but haven't tried it yet. Hope you are enjoying it. :)

      If you would like to stop by for my teaser...
