It’s usually Myra on Teaser Tuesday, but this time around I got the opportunity to share with you a few excerpts from the books I’m reading. I say some, because I tend to read 3 to 4 books at a time, but for today’s post I’m only sharing two.
This is the sixth time that we are joining Teaser Tuesday, a weekly meme that is hosted by Miz B from Should Be Reading. As per usual, here’s the drill:
- Grab your current read/s.
- Open to a random page.
- Share “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page (We deleted the ‘two sentences’ bit since I tend to include more than two sentences, truth be told).
- 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!
I’m currently reading two very diverse books, one is a fantasy/adventure and the other a classic book one must read before you die (or so said the list “1001 books you must read before you die.” J). Without further delay here are today’s teasers:
“Makaido’s sense of danger blared in his mind. He tried to stretch out his weakened wings. Would they all be able to pull him up in time? Maybe he could plow into a row of Watchers and die in a blaze of glory. Why not? With the prophesied storm gaining strength, he was destined to die soon anyway.”
“Within the half hour Briony would commit her crime. Conscious that she was sharing the night expanse with a maniac, she kept close to the shadowed walls of the house at first, and ducked low beneath the sills whenever she passed in front of lightened windows.”
I was quite taken by McEwan. I wasn’t sure what to expect of his writing. Now that I have read more than a quarter of the book, I’m glad I gave him a try. The Davis book is a challenging read as all fantasies are in terms of remembering worlds, powers, and characters.
