Tuesday Teasers 29th September 2015

First Chapter, First Paragraph, Tuesday Intros is hosted by Bibliophile by the Sea where bloggers share the first paragraph or two of the book they are currently reading/thinking about reading soon. Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. 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!

Ann:

The Rest of Us Just Live Here
Tuesday Intro:
"On the day we're the last people to see indie kid Finn alive, we're all sprawled together in the Field, talking about love and stomachs.


Teaser Tuesday:
“Feelings don't try to kill you, even the painful ones. Anxiety is a feeling grown too large. A feeling grown aggressive and dangerous. You're responsible for it's consequences, you're responsible for treating it. But Michael, you're not responsible for causing it. You're not morally at fault for it. No more than you would be for a tumour.” 


Clare:
Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1)
Tuesday Intro:
"Joost had two problems: the moon and his moustache.He was supposed to be making his rounds at the Hoede house, but for the last fifteen minutes, he'd been hovering around the south-east wall of the gardens, trying to think of something clever and romantic to say to Anya."
Teaser Tuesday: 

"“Kaz leaned back. "What's the easiest way to steal a man's wallet?" 
"Knife to the throat?" asked Inej. "Gun to the back?" said Jesper. 
"Poison in his cup?" suggested Nina. 
"You're all horrible," said Matthias.”"
This just arrived and I am just so genuinely excited. I am already half in love with this book and those quotes are both so good! I am going to be really anti-social until I've finished this!

Both look intriguing...the Patrick Ness book drew me in. I like its teaser about feelings. Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

I'm curious: what's an "indie kid?" The Rest of Us Just Live Here sounds like a book I'd enjoy. I'm not so sure about Six of Crows.

The indie kids are sort of like the usual heroes of the books, the ones who save the world - they're basically Buffy whilst the main characters are the kids who are usually in the background. Its a really good book. I am really enjoying Six of Crows so far! Thanks for visiting

Sandra Nachlinger said...

Thanks for the explanation.

Chippy said...

I think I'd have to read a bit more of The Rest Of Us Just Live Here before I decided whether to continue or not.

Six of Crows does sound intriguing though.
