Ah! I can not believe that New Year’s is this weekend! Where did the year go? It just flew by! I am so looking forward to all of the awesome books due to hit stores in 2011, but I still have some great titles from 2010 to read! I know what I will be doing all weekend – reading!
I am trying to pack a few more debuts into the year, and since The Line by Teri Hall has been sitting, neglected, in my TBR stack for a while, I am looking forward to polishing this one off. I just started it, so here’s a teaser from the first page.
“It seemed to Rachel that she had always lived on The Property, though this wasn’t true. Her mother, Vivian, said they moved there when she was three years old, but Rachel didn’t remember. To her, The Property was home.”
Well, judging from that teaser, I can bet that The Property won’t feel like home for much longer.
I love Orson Scott Card, and I am very excited to read The Lost Gate. I like Danny so far, and wonder how he is going to stay out the of the clutches of his less than loving family.
“Eric and Tony said their good-byes and a half hour later, Eric and Danny were in the back of a pickup truck that was going as far as Staunton. Danny figured it was the luckiest thing in his life, that he walked behind those stores and not in front of them.”
See, sometimes, even the littlest things make a big difference in your life!
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!
