[Teaser Tuesdays]: September 30

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Should Be Reading. 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!








First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros is a weekly meme hosted by Diane at Bibliophile by Sea. It lets us share the first paragraph or (a few) of a book we are reading or thinking about reading soon. 








After being disappointed with the previous book I read, I hope that what I'm picking right now is the right choice. I really feel the need for some good book.

What I am reading now:

First paragraph:

First the colours.

        Then the humans.
        That's usually how I see things.
        Or at least, how I try.

Here is a small fact: You are going to die.

I am in all truthfulness attempting to be cheerful about this whole topic, though most people find themselves hindered in believing me, no matter my protestations. Please, trust me. I most definitely can be cheerful. I can be amiable. Agreeable. Affable. And that's only the As. Just don't ask me to be nice. Nice has nothing to do with me.






Random teaser:

The fire was nothing now but a funeral of smoke, dead and dying, simultaneously: On this particular morning, there were also voices.

~p. 239, "The Book Thiefby Markus Zusak.







Wow, I really like the first paragraph. What makes this book look more interesting to me that it is narrated by Death :]
Please share with me your Teaser Tuesdays or First Chapter First Paragraph on the comment box so I can visit your blog too :)
