Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers
My teaser this week is from the brand new books by one of my most favorite urban fantasy authors, Seanan McGuire. She writes the fantastic October Daye series, and now the InCryptid series. Discount Armageddon, the first InCryptid book, debuts today and I am so excited to begin reading it. Here are the first two sentences:
Verity danced circles around the living room, her amateurish pirouettes and unsteady leaps accompanied by cheers and exultations from the horde of Aeslin mice perched on the back of the couch. The cheering of the mice reached a fever pitch on the few occasions that she actually managed to get both feet off the ground and land again without falling.
If you’ve never tried Seanan McGuire’s books on for size, I highly recommend them. Her October Daye series is chock full of faerie lore and intrigue (as well as Tybaldt, the sexy King of Cats). She also writes as Mira Grant, author of the excellent Feed trilogy, which I also recommend with both thumbs. Happy release day, Seanan!
