Tuesday Teaser July 1

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!

My teaser:

“As much as he openly despised them, Mayakovsky couldn’t seem to bring himself to banish them either.  Maybe he was lonelier than he let on.”

–from page 124 of Lev Grossman’s The Magician’s Land, out on August 5, 2014.

Tuesday Teaser July 1 — 8 Comments

  1. Cool teaser! A friend told me I would really like his stuff, but I haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. My teaser this week is a re-read of a favorite series and author. From Anne Bishop’s Black Jewels series: Dreams Made Flesh.

    • Grossman’s stuff is like taking the fantasy genre and twisting it, but in a cool and interesting way. Plus, he scatters little Easter Eggs referring to other books through the series… fun to see if you can spot them. 😉

      I’ve wanted to read the Black Jewels books for a while now. They’re on my to-read list. Good to see another rec for them!
