[Teaser Tuesdays]: September 9

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!



I'm so glad I found so many new books (at least 'new' as to me) and already put them on my TBR list:

Already ordered and currently waiting:


17623975          19063          6936382          3636

It was so hard for me to get The Giver with original cover, and eventually I had to settle with the international edition one. I don't know why but for me personally, the original one is more tempting than the newest.

On my TBR list:

3521484          6624871          8470445          8079815


6763730          18054175          8475505          10757749


8922087          8527904          9464733          6665671


82434          9711714


Eighteen books! I don't know how my pocket and myself will keep up with them at the end! But I'm gonna find out soon (a sad story of a frustrated bookworm lol)

Meanwhile, below is my Teaser Tuesday for this week!

It was rather difficult for me to find a proper teaser for this book, since every chapter is so short and there is almost nothing I could write that is not really a spoiler.

  1. Wow, sounds like it must move right along then if there are so many spoilers in it! I think my husband read this one.

    1. thanks for the comment, Karen. Hmm, considering those 530 pages, i think the plot flows with normal pace. What does your husband say about this book? I hope it's a good one! :)

    1. thanks for your comment, Claudia. Yes, I'm planning to read the whole series. I already ordered the third book actually. the second will be acquired through loan via local library, and i'm still thinking whether to buy or borrow the fourth book.

      err, actually i want to tell you what's happening in the teaser, but it'll be a spoiler then lol
      All the Light We Cannot See is a very good book. You should try it :)

  5. That's always the way--either can't find a good teaser that doesn't give anything away or there's so many that it's hard to choose.

    Mine this week is from a series mystery by Barbara Hambly. http://wp.me/pZnGI-cB

    1. thanks for the comment, Kerry. Yeah, it's not really happy this far. But I don't know, I have the tendency in liking depressing and unhappy stories. Sounds creepy, aren't I? lol
