Tuesday Teasers

Well, we apparently all survived Monday. Sort of. Mostly.

Just because I finished Killbox tonight, and am seriously wanting to re-read Grimspace....

I'm putting a teaser up for Ann Aguirre's Grimspace, the first of the Sirantha Jax series.

From page 5
"Assuming the lotus position, he still doesn't say a word, and just as I'm thinking this is getting weird, he cants his head toward his open palm. I lean over so I can read something that's inked onto his hand:
Say nothing for 60 seconds. "

So good!

The Replacement - Now for the book that I'm currently reading. Started it tonight, but between granddaughter, grandson, and computer inputting for work, I haven't gotten very far yet. However, sometimes you can tell within the first few pages that you're going to like a book very much, simply from the style of writing. This seems to be one of those book. In the first two chapters, I've already felt some little goosebumps...and this is a Young Adult book - not horror, not really suspense...but it's fantasy. And something creepy is going on in this town...

from page 43:
"Mrs. Brummel was tall and thin, with bleached hair and a lot of different sweaters. She got very exceited about the kind of literature that no reasonable person would ever read for fun."

I just love that last sentence. I'm sure everyone has met someone like that....hey - don't take it wrong if you ARE someone like that! :) Nothing wrong with being unreasonable..... (yes there is...lol)

Sorry - no links for authors tonight, big hurry. Will fix later...maybe, no promises.


  1. The Replacement sounds interesting the way you describe it.
