Teaser Tuesday–The Book of Wonders and A Lady Awakened

Naturally, I finally get some time away from work to read, and I end up getting sick.  I spent most of the holiday weekend sleeping, though I did occasionally feel like reading in short spurts.  I  polished off Cinder by Marissa Meyer, which is a very compelling retelling of Cinderella.  I enjoyed it very much, and eagerly look forward to the next installment of the series.

Then I picked up The Book of Wonders by Jasmine Richards, which is a Middle-Grade novel with an Arabian Nights feel.  I liked this from the get-go, and can hardly wait to see what kind of adventures Zardi and Rhidan stumble across.

Ninety days. Blood flowed over Zardi’s teeth as she bit down on her tongue to stop herself crying out. Ninety days until the Hunt.

Oh, my!  I haven’t read anything at all like A Lady Awakened by Cecilia Grant.  This  is very engrossing, and I am having a hard time putting it down.  I guarantee that you haven’t read a Regency like this before!

In its place welled up that same dismay she’d known on her first viewing, some ten months past, of a naked man.  Whose idea of good design was this? Why those awkward angles, and what could be the necessity for all that hair? 

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!
