Teaser Tuesday: Tyger Tyger

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 "teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! Share the title & author, too, so that others can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!

This week my teaser comes from Tyger Tyger by Kersten Hamilton courtesy of NetGalley. This passage made me laugh out loud. I don't agree, of course, but it is pretty cute. From page 120:

Tyger Tyger: A Goblin Wars Book

     "You know what the problem is here?" Abby said. "Old books. They've damaged your brain, Tea."
     "Those books your family is always reading. You know why they call old books literature? Because they litter up your brain, that's why."


  1. LMAO what a funny quote! I totally disagree with it, but now non-readers have one argument they can use!

  2. LOL! Too funny. Definitely not true, but still amusing!

    My teaser is from The Night Villa by Carol Goodman.

  3. That's a funny teaser! :D Although completely untrue . . .

    My teaser is from Under a War-Torn Sky by L.M. Elliot.

  4. That teaser made me smile. It's completely untrue though, but funny all the same.

  5. That is a good one and brought a smile to my face.

  6. LOVE the teaser!! Couldn't help but laugh out loud on that one!

  7. This is great! What a chuckle.
