Teaser Tuesdays (5) [Double Dose]

You're some lucky bookworms this week! I have another double dose for you...and you're going to LAUGH at me when you see what I'm reading!!!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

To participate:
*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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

W h a t I ' m R e a d i n g :

Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins (New in Paperback)

M y T e a s e r s :

"Man, Sophie, it's only your first day and you've already befriended the school outcast, pissed off the most popular girls at Hecate, and developed a full-blown thing for the hottest guy. If you can manage to get detention tomorrow, you'll be like, legendary."

(~pg. 106)

This week, I'm in the mood for some lighthearted school stories. They put me in the right frame of mind for what I'm writing right now. Today's victim is Hex Hall. I'd seen the buzz on it when it was new in HC, but never had the urge to read it until I saw it again in a corrugated display at B&N. I finished reading it today and I was surprised at just how much I enjoyed it! I'm officially in the "I Can't Wait For Demonglass Camp" now! Thankfully March 1st isn't too far away!

And here's where you'll laugh...because I'm TOTALLY reading an oldie (but goodie)!

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

M y T e a s e r s :

"That is very true," replied Elizabeth, "and I could easily forgive his pride, if he had not mortified mine."

(~pg. 52 of B&N Classics: Nook Edition; cover art from B&N Leatherbound Classics: Jane Austen: Seven Novels b/c that's the gorgeous version I own...I'm just too lazy to read something so heavy...and I have a free edition on my nook, so...*shrug*)

On Sunday, I was working in the Music Dept. all day. We're showing the 1996 BBC/A&E version of Pride and Prejudice with the fantastic Colin Firth. After watching it all day and having disc one repeat just when it was getting good, I knew I'd be going home and picking up this oldie but goodie. Ah, my friend, it's been far too long since last we met!


  1. Excellent choice in P&P. My TT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2011/02/teaser-tuesday-indefensible.html
