Teaser Tuesday – White Cat &Tyger Tyger

It’s Teaser Tuesday again! Where does the time go?? For a full description of what it is, check the bottom of this post.

I am making steady progress with White Cat by Holly Black, but I am disappointed that I haven’t finished it yet.  I was on vacation last week and spent more time socializing than reading.  I also didn’t want to take the iPad to the dusty arena (the Sony Pocket doesn’t get as much love), so I could only read this when I was at the hotel, which wasn’t very often.

“’Hold still,’ she said, her fingers cold on my skin. I watched melting ice running down her wrist to drip off her elbow.  We both waited, quietly, as though this was a ceremonial rite.”

Now, the Sony Pocket is a little sturdier than the iPad, so it did get to go and watch the horse show with me.  When there were classes that I found uninteresting, I started reading Tyger Tyger by Kersten Hamilton.  I wasn’t immediately drawn into the story, but once the goblins show their ugly faces, I was hooked.

“’Goblins steal little kids?’ Aiden frowned. "’Mom wouldn’t do that.’”

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!

    Nice teasers. Both books are on my wishlist. :) I like both of their covers, except for White Cat I don’t much care for the big author writing in comparison to the title. I don’t really know what Tyger Tyger is about, other than the faerie-like impression it gave off, to me. Hmm…so, goblins aye? Fairytale! :D

    Check out my Teaser Tuesday and contest!

    So jealous that you can choose between an Ipad and the Sony reader. I’ll get one eventually.

    My teasers this week are here.

    Great teasers! I don’t have an iPad, it seemed to big to read with comfortably. How is it to hold when reading?

    My teaser is here.

    @Aimee – I love reading on the iPad. I was very resistant to ebooks until I bought it, but now I prefer them. It is easier to read with the iPad than the Sony Pocket Reader (a gift from boyfriend), though I like them both.
