Contest Reminder and teaser Tuesday

I'm not sure why, but no one has entered to win the hardback copy of Nocturne.

Enter Here for a chance to win your own copy. It's a good book.

Thankfully, Monday is now over, and Tuesday is just one day away from the middle of the week (always waiting for the weekend, my friends, always waiting!)

Hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading, this is my other favorite weekly meme - teasing you with teasers.

But, I'm not feeling right yet- so I'm keeping it short tonight.

From Zoo City (Lauren Beukes) , page 15

"To the old lady's credit, she didn't flinch when she saw Sloth draped across my shoulders.

'You can only be the girl from the ad. Well, come in. Have a cup of tea.' "

Hell, how about one more?
From The Outback Stars (Sandra McDonald)
pages 39-49
' ...On rubber legs she forced herself past blurry strangers and toward her quarters. No one stopped her, which was a relief.
She certainly didn't want her new shipmates to see her sobbing like a baby.'

  6. Great teasers! I'll have to checkout the second book; the cover and teaser intrigue me.

  7. A sloth? Hmm..can't say I've seen that animal featured in any books recently. As for the second one...curious why she's crying. Nice teasers! Thanks for sharing....
