Teaser Tuesday #3 – May 16th: The Silkworm

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Purple Booker. It’s as easy as eating brownies to join:

  1. Open the book you are reading on a random page.
  2. Choose two 'teaser' sentences from that page.
  3. Make sure you don't add spoilers in the teaser
  4. My own twist: I select sentences from the page I'm currently reading*

*because I’m human and imperfect, like Strike, so I have many flaws. And one of them is needing several weeks to finish one single book. I AM THE WORST. #dontkillmeokay #cormoranstrikewillfindyouifyoudo #justsoyouknow


Okay, I skipped last week’s TT but in all fairness, I had nothing worth mentioning (read: I wasn’t reading one single sentence from a book in my never ending TBR pile). It happens. The world didn’t stop spinning and we still have gravity to keep our feet on the ground. No deal. Moving on.

Today’s teaser has nothing to do with an angel dominated dystopian world written for young adults. Nope. You might want to put away those party hats though. The world might not be ending, but the book I’m reading is no happy sunset romance either.

Today, I’m teasing you with a mystery by our famous lady J.K. Rowling, written in her pseudonym. Not much to tease about yet so I figured I might as well give you a glimpse of the conversation between Strike and a woman he’s interviewing for the first time.

This teaser can be found at 3% of THIS edition. It’s the second book in the Cormoran Strike series.

Teaser Tuesday #2 – May 2nd: Angelfall

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Purple Booker. It’s as easy as eating brownies to join:

  1. Open the book you are reading on a random page.
  2. Choose two 'teaser' sentences from that page.
  3. Make sure you don't add spoilers in the teaser
  4. My own twist: I select sentences from the page I'm currently reading*

*because I’m human and imperfect, unlike Raffe who’s a walking Adonis on earth, so I have a pile of flaws. And one of them is needing several weeks to finish one single book. I AM THE WORST. #dontkillmeokay 


And onwards we go! I’m working on a title header for this meme but haven’t found the right vibe yet. Which, in all honesty, is one of the reasons why I’m still reading the same book as last week. I predicted this, didn’t I? Maybe I should consider a future into this? Hmm.

I’m almost at the end of this book and whoa, am I rooting for Raffe! I’ve always been a bit skeptical when it comes down to Angel related books (just like I am with faeries) but this one has a few different genres covered all in one book: dystopian, angels, action, political, demons…you name it and it’s probably in here!

To contribute to an action-filled chapter, you may find today’s teaser at 84% on page 273 of THIS edition.

Teaser Tuesday #1 – April 25th: Angelfall

I have noticed some bloggers posting Teaser Tuesday’s posts here and there and I’ve decided I want to join in on the weekly meme that’s hosted by The Purple Booker.

It’s fairly easy to participate:

Open the book you are currently reading to a random page.
Choose two ‘teaser’ sentences from that page
Make sure you don’t add spoilers in the teasers

I’m going to change one little thing: I’ll be taking the teaser sentences from the page I’m currently on whilst reading because there might be two following weeks when I’ll be posting from the same book (not a fast reader compared to some of you!). We can’t be good in everything, right?

Today’s teaser is from Angelfall, the first book in Penryn & The End of Days series, written by Susan Ee. It’s a YA, fantasy set in a dystopian world with Angels. This teaser can be found at 1% as I’ve just begun re-reading this.

What are you reading today? Tease me with two sentences! 😉
