Teaser Tuesday – Dead Beautiful & Bride of the Water God

I had a relaxing weekend of reading, but getting back into the daily grind at work has been brutal so far this week!  The only thing keeping me from going nuts is the Talking Tom application on my iPad.  I have been sending my mom little videos with highlights from my day.  She’s probably celebrating that I’m home now and reading my mountain of books instead of bothering her.

My Teaser Tuesday books for this week are both so good!  First up is Dead Beautiful by Yvonne Woon, which I can not put down.  I love her writing style.

“The first week of school only added to the strange events that had been occurring over the past few weeks.  It started in Latin.”

Bride of the Water God by Mi-Kyung Yun is becoming one of my favorite graphic novel series.  I love, love, love the art, and the story is finally starting to make some sense.  Win, win!

“But…why do I feel so empty-hearted..even though I like Mui over Habaek…?”

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!

    I don’t think manga translates to text all that well. :X Maybe just flashing the cover/a page is enough to whet anyone’s appetite. :P I remember going into the bookshop, saw the cover for the first volume and bought it right then and there. I had no idea what it was, but I didn’t care. It’s just SO gorgeous!

    @Cass – I totally agree about manga not translating to text well. I should post a panel instead, but my scanner is broken. And yeah, I LOVE the art of Bride of the Water God!
