Here’s my teaser for today.

Sitting on the front steps at twilight looking up at the heavens,Wondering how many brightly glowing stars I have counted.

The summer’s humidity brings glistening highlights to my auraAnd I wonder if the giggling angels can observe my twinkle…as I can theirs.

by Linda Going Deckert

I knew that this is not the usual Teaser that I post on our TT, because this is actually an excerpt from a collection of poems that have captured my attention. I was supposed to be reading Steampunks this week, but I wanted to try something for a change. The Mountains Belong To Me is such a great book that you would feel the writer’s passion for her work once you read her poems. 🙂

Here’s my teaser for today.

It was Alec who spoke first. “What’s this?” he demanded, looking from Clary to his companions, as if they might know what she was doing there.

“It’s a girl,” Jace said, recovering his composure. “Surely you’ve seen girls before, Alec. Your sister Isabelle is one.”

Yes, I am re-reading City of Bones in anticipation of its upcoming movie release (on August 21). I am just so excited to see the movie!

All eyes turned to me, sitting quietly behind Dr. Raphael. The Council members agreed. My vote would decide the matter. I considered the choice before me, knowing that my decision put me at last among the angelologists.

The council waited for me to make my choice..”

That is all I remember when I wake each morning before dawn, gasping and covered in perspiration, more tired than when I went to bed.

They are only dreams. Then why do they leave me feeling so troubled?

REBEL ANGELS by Libba Bray

Rebel Angels is the sequel to A Great Terrible Beauty from the Gemma Doyle / Realms trilogy

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Here’s my teaser for this week:

Yet still, I write this confession to you, my own wife, the one soul destined to wring something from naught. If I succeed in correcting what I have done, then I shall burn this missive and you will never know my sorry secret. If you are reading these words, then ’tis because I have failed.

The Countess (Bride Quest Book 4)
By Claire Dela Croix
P.S.
I really like the cover of this book. The lady looks elegant but there is mischief in her eyes! I wish I had read the first three books before this edition. I am sure this is going to be an epic book from Ms Delacroix.. 🙂
