Teaser Tuesday - 1 September

Teaser Tuesday

The rules are:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) 'teaser' sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title and author of the book that you’re getting your 'teaser' from .. that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you've given!
"The fire will keep them some distance away. I think we're safe here on the shore. It will be more dangerous in the forest," said Brother Fernando.
Andie cut him off, "Yes, but we don't plan to go into the forest."
From Isabel Allende's Forest of the Pygmies bit Boy's Own'ish - I see it is classed on Amazon as 'Young Adult - but an exciting ride! And here's another fun quote:
Fighting bulls is easy. Serving Christ is a little more complex," Brother Fernando concluded.
"To judge by the demonstration you gave us, apparently good eyesight isn't a requirement for either."

From Markus Zusak's "The Book Thief" Page 223,

"In the morning he would return to the basement.
A voiceless human.
The Jewish rat, back to his hole."

and from further down,

"It was decided that Trudy, despite her mild demeanour, could not be trusted."

Based in Nazi Germany, narrated by Death and telling the story of a book loving nine year old girl. A great read.

I love the new look blog.

Thank you - yes I read the Book Thief and enjoyed it a few(?) months back. I've been intending to change the look of the blog for some time - you may have noticed the grumbles in some blog entries but it was such a palaver last time I was reluctant. This time I found good instructions as to how to keep the widgets without re-entering them, it was dead easy! I think it's a little slower to load now though...
