Teaser Tuesday

On my way to post a Teaser Tuesday meme, I stopped by the LOLCat site and got a little carried away.  Ended up captioning a couple of pics, and posting to my folder, etc.  Forgot all about the work I had to that's been piling up...forgot about my Tuesday Teaser post, forgot about even reading the book I was going to start...

I finally remembered what I was trying to do... so here I am now.  Only I haven't yet started the book, not even sure what I'm going to read.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of ShouldBeReading.  We tease, with words.  Tease with sentences out of books we're reading - no spoilers!

I might read Except The Queen by Jan Yolen and Midori Snyder.  It's a type of fairytale - there are exiled fae featured.  So here are some sentences from the second chapter...

     'In the Greenwood, the Fae to not write accounts of their own doing. Yes, we have bards whose entire lives are spent composing heroic verses  to praise those we claim as heroes  or those great and terrible loves that have nearly destroyed whole clans. Yes we have history.  But we don't care much for personal memory.'

This is not going to be a light and airy fairytale.  This is going to be dark - with evil doings.  Just skimming the first few pages I can already see this.  In addition, the writing is pretty good - it flows.

Now, I leave you with a second LOL Cat.  'Cause I'm a bit obsessed....The following pic is not captioned by me - I wish it were, because it's hella funny.  For more lolcat fun, go to Icanhascheezeburgers.  My personal lol captions are on Mardel's stuff.  It's been fun, trying to come up with weird captions for other people's cat pics.  If you have a profile on this site, leave a comment with a link so I can check out some of your captions. Please. :)
