Teaser Tuesday: January 19, 2010

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

1. Grab your current read.
2. Open to a random page.
3. Share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
4. 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!).
5. Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teasers:
Daughter of the Forest (The Sevenwaters Trilogy, Book 1)
"He'd said I'd know what to do, when I saw the boy. Well, there he was, and a sorry sight to be sure, curled up like a chastised dog, sleeping the dead sleep of one punished almost beyond endurance. His lids were heavy, and there wasn't a lot of spring left in the sunny curls. I tried to imagine him waking; maybe staring at me with the vacant eyes of an idiot, or the mad ones of a wild creature cornered; but all that came into my mind was one of the old stories, and the picture of the hero, Culhan the Venturer, stepping through the woods silent as a deer." - pg. 45, Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier

Jane Eyre (Scholastic Classics)
"But what is so headstrong as youth? What so blind as inexperience? These affirmed that it was pleasure enough to have the privilege of again looking on Mr. Rochester, whether he looked on me or not; and they added - 'Hasten! hasten! Be with him while you may: but a few more days or weeks at most, and you are parted with him forever!' And then I strangled a new-born agony - a deformed thing which I could not persuade myself to own and rear - and ran on." - pg. 266, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

(I sooo need to finish these books!)
