Teaser Tuesdays, January 13

It's a sweltering hot (41 degree Celsius) Tuesday, a very appropriate time for Teaser Tuesday.
What's it all about?
  • Grab your current read
  • Let the book fall open to a random page
  • Share 2 "teaser" sentences from the page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • No spoilers! Just teasers :)
As well as Psyche In A Dress by Francesca Lia Block, I'm currently reading Surrender by Sonya Hartnett, after reading and loving another of her books The Ghost's Child (See my review of it here!)
If you touch me I will bruise; if I shift, to ease my weight, blood rivers from my nose. I am saintly, poetic; I am demise, otherworld.
Enticing? Check back later for my review of Surrender which I will be posting after I finish the novel!


  1. A swelter sounds enviable just now, as I walk about in three sweaters and read with a blanket over my legs. Thank you so much for stopping by the blog earlier today. You're very sweet.

  2. Hi! Welcome to the blog world. This is I_ballyhoo from LJ. I added a link to your blog on my blogroll. I can't wait to start reading your reviews!

  3. I bought Surrender a while back. I am slowly trying to collect all the Printz books for my home library. But this is the first time I have had any interest in reading this.

    I like the cover in the post better than the cover in the sidebar. The one in the sidebar is the edition I have and there is something really unappealing about it for me.

  4. Beth - You shouldn't talk about sweaters to someone who is boiling, it just make me feel hotter!! hehe

    Nari - Thankyou so much :) I'm adding you to my blogroll now!

    Megan - I haven't seen the cover in the sidebar up close yet, it's the one LibraryThing came up with. The copy I own has the cover I posted.. it seems overly simple to me compared to the other one, perhaps it's the Australian cover?

  5. I love your blog, found the link at livejournal!
    Maybe I should post the teaser :)

  6. Sara - Thankyou so much! :)

    Alice - Yes, it is very poetic. Sonya Hartnett is lovely like that :)

  7. Your site is so cool. I'm impressed by the details that you've on this web site. It reveals how nicely you understand this subject.
