Teaser Tuesday: February 9, 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:

The Elvenbane (Halfblood Chronicles, Bk. 1)
"Never had she wanted so much to undo something she had done. Never had it been so impossible to undo it.
There was no point in going to look at the squirrel; she knew by the way it was lying that she had broken its neck and back. But she crept to it on hands and knees, anyway, and picked up the tiny body, cradling it in her hand. The body was still warm, the fur soft, all the little limbs limp." - pg. 165, Elvenbane by Andre Norton and Mercedes Lackey

Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life
"So now I always tell my students about the Gulf Stream; that what it means for us, for writers, is that we need to align ourselves with the river of the story, the river of the unconscious, of memory and sensibility, of our characters' lives, which can then pour through us, the straw. When KFKD is playing, we are at cross purposes with the river. So we need to sit there, and breathe, calm ourselves down, push back our sleeves, and begin again." - pg. 121, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life by Anne Lamott

What are you reading this week?
