Teaser Tuesdays (3)

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 pag e
* 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, and author too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Mithee's Teasers:

Josh’s eyes shine. “Anna. Haven’t you ever drunk before?”
“Of course,” I lie. But a blush destroys my cover. They all scream.
“How can you have gone half a school year without drinking?” Rashmi asks.

~Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

"Need a poo, Todd."
"Shut up, Manchee."
"Poo. Poo, Todd."
"I said shut it."

~ The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

In case you ask, Manchee is a dog in The Knife of Never Letting Go. It's got a pretty weird writing style -or should I say spelling style? But anyways, both have been awesome so far. I'm really enjoying the two.

Lyn's Teaser Tuesday:

Heroes of the Valley (Heroes of the Valley (Quality))Across the hall he went, trailing a long black shadow that slipped like a phantom over the fiery reflections on the floor. The knife glinted softly in his hand.
Onto the staircase, slowly, steadily. His feet made no sound. He kept his eyes fixed on the balcony above.
With murder in his heart, he unlatched the door; stepped inside, and pushed it swiftly shut behind him.

Heroes of the Valley by Jonathan Stroud

“How can you have gone half a school year without drinking?” *lol*
Yeah...HOW, Anna??? xD
Honestly I can so relate =)

The second teaser is so cute^^ the style of writing reminds me of Jonathan Safran Foer...don't know why. Will have to check it out.

Heroes of the Valley? Never heard of it...but the teaser is pretty intriguing and the cover is great.

Here is my teaser from Witchgrass: A Pipe Dream by Dave Wilkinson (Page 1):

Most gardeners hate witchgrass. Of all weeds it is one of the most persistent and adaptable. Any small piece of rhizome left in the soil can become an aggressive plant ready to take over the plot. Witchgrass is hard to pull. Roots are deep, and break off easily. Any part left in the ground will grow again. Farmers say the species isn't even good as hay, not as good as timothy or alfalfa. Some call it quickgrass.

Early New England colonists blamed evil people for this garden invader. In the seventeenth century villagers would speak this way:

"The surly woman living alone on her dead husband's estate. She goes into the woods and consorts with the Devil. Signs his book. Fornicates with him. Eats mushrooms. She and the Devil send witchgrass to harass the virtuous and the Godly. Let us hang this witch and seize her rich farm."
