This meme is brought to you weekly by MizB over at Should Be Reading!
Anyone can play along, just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title and the author, too, so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR List if they like your teaser!
This past weekend, I started reading Grave Mercy and....omg, it's freakin' amazeballs! Like way awesome! I've mentioned it before and I will again, I absolutely love stories that take place during the time period of knights in shining armor, prince and princesses, wizards and sorcerers, bows and arrows, swords, and horses, and...basically medieval times and this book scored big time for me! It's so epic I can't even put into words how much I love it and I'm barely a hundred pages in - barely! So, based off that, I know that once I finish it, I will feel as if I've lost a friend. Seriously. <333
With that said, I couldn't just do one teaser because as I was reading, there were so many lines/paragraphs that stood out to me and I just wanted so badly to share them with all of you, lol! So, without further adieu *pause* (I had to google which way was the correct way to word that phrase and....read this post: http://grammar.quickanddirtytips.com/ado-versus-adieu.aspx || BWAHA, I feel so dumb now!) Now, without further ado! LOL, I'm cracking up at myself SO bad!
My 1st Teaser
Dizzy at the speed with which my world has been turned upside down, I stall, trying to think of one last argument I could make. I have joined the convent to withdraw from the world of men, not to be thrust upon the mercy of one.- ARC → Page 87, Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
My 2nd Teaser
As he rows, his chest strains against the fine velvet of his doublet. The muscles in his arms bunch, then stretch, with every pull on the oar, and I cannot help but think that even with all the training the convent has given me, he could easily best me in a hand-to-hand fight.- ARC → Page 98, Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
Not liking the direction of those thoughts, I cast my gaze out to sea, certain I have been consigned to a special section of hell.
My 3rd Teaser
I begin to dismount and immediately Duval is at my side, helping me. He reaches up and puts his hands on my waist. I bite back a gasp of surprise as the warmth from his hands seeps through his gloves and my gown to my skin, driving away some small portion of the chill Death has brought. He lifts me from the saddle and as soon as my feet touch the ground, I pull away from him. I am all business, as if he has not just touched me more intimately than I have ever been touched in my life, and I head toward the grave.- ARC → Page 104, Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
|More, more, more, please?!|
Anyway, back to the book! GUUYS, how sexy is the name Gavriel Duval?! That name definitely tops the sexy names list! I could just walk around saying Gavvvv.riiiiiiiii.elllll over and over again and I'll be super giddy as efff! I've barely been introduced to him for 3-5 chapters but already, I lurrrve him; totally my knight in shining armor. <333
So, what do you guys think?! Which teaser teased you guys the most?! ;) And if you guys have a TT, link me below and I'll check it out when I get home from school, lololol - school, gets in the way of everything!
Pdots → Did you guys notice that in the 1st and 3rd teaser, they both contain a word from the title of the book?! Omg, bet you guys didn't catch that! GRAVE. MERCY. Omgomgomgomgomgomg!
Happy Tuesday everyone!
