For this week's Teaser Tuesday I am sharing two teasers, but they are from two completely different sized stories. One is from a short story that is about 20 pages long, and the other from a book that is very nearly 1000 pages long.
The first teaser comes from The Point of Roses, a short story that is in the Yellowcake collection by Aussie author Margo Lanagan, and is found on page 25 of the collection.
Alex's free hand crept into Billy's. Billy went still, feeling grateful and responsible and unworthy.
The second teaser comes from page 83 of Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss.
It was only then I realized I didn't know the name of Elodin's class. I leafed through the ledger until I spotted Elodin's name, then ran my finger back to where the title of the class was listed in fresh, dark ink: "Introduction to Not Being a Stupid Jackass."
I sighed and penned my name in the single blank space beneath.
My adventures through time and place, all without leaving the pages of my book. Reading is what I do to relax and escape, and talking about reading is my favourite hobby. You might find me immersed in historical fiction or romance, young adult, a mystery or a fantasy, but you can be sure that whereever I am, I will have a book with me!
If you have read and reviewed a book that I have reviewed, then please, feel free to add your link in the comment for that post and I will add your link into the body of the post so that other readers will be able to see what you thought as well.
