Teaser Tuesday

Hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading, this is one of my favorite memes, mainly because it's an easy, yet fun book meme. A book meme that's easy for me to continue, allowing me the illusion that I'm accomplishing something. : )



Today's teaser is from Daniel X Watch the Skies
Available now
Young Adult
from page 155, {Daniel is speaking of the book Silas Marner}:

" ' Yeah,' I said as we climbed inside the minivan. 'They use that book to punish criminals on my home planet. They make the worst offenders read it out loud and then write reports about the author's use of symbolism and metaphor.' "

  1. Haha. Sounds like the what we have to do for the HSC (what students in the State of NSW, Australia have to complete at the end of their final year of school) in English!!! (as in..forced to read certain books and write about them).

    Here is my teaser http://limpetsandpenguins.blogspot.com

  6. How is Watching the Skies going? I read the first one, but I'm still deciding if I want to read the second :).

    As for my teaser on Hourglass - yes that is part of the Evernight series. The first book is Evernight and the second is Stargazer. The third is Hourglass. And so far, so good! It's another one of those vamp series.

  7. I thought Watch the Skies was the first one. I finished it, review is up. It was okay, fairly good. Not spectacular, like Betrayals, or Kelley Armstrongs YA, but then I think this might be for a slightly younger audience - (?)
