Teaser Tuesday (5)

The meme hosted by Should Be Reading, so stop by and check out her blog!

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!
Okay, breaking the rules like always, I have two teasers for you today, and neither fit the mold.

First up:

The Name of the Wind
by Patrick Rothfuss

"Everyone think's you're dead....Other people say you're a myth."
"I am a myth," Kote said easily..."A very special kind of myth that creates itself. Some of the best lies about me are the ones I told."
"They say you never existed" Chronicler corrected gently.
"Ahhhh," Kote sighed out a long breath..."Clever. You'd use my own story against me. You'd hold my story a hostage."
"I would tell the truth."
" Nothing but the truth could break me. What is harder than the truth?"

And a couple of haiku from Zombie Haiku
by Eric Mecum

Biting into heads
is much harder than it looks.
The skull is feisty.

You are so lucky
that I cannot remember
how to use doorknobs.

Nothing hurts me now.
Normally the screwdriver
wouldn't have gone there.


  1. HAHA! LOVE those zombie haiku. Made me laugh aloud in a coffee shop, actually. And the philosophy and logic of myths from that first teaser = awesome. Great picks!

    My teaser is from Barry Smith's Only Milo.

    p.s. (going on the evidence on your banner) you are a rat lover? me too!

  2. Very much so. I don't have any right now because we're not allowed to have pets where I live, but yes, I have had many rats, both bought and rescued. So nice to meet you, fellow rat-lover.

    And yes, I love the ZH teaser. Perfect mix of eww and ha! Hopefully, the book lives up.

  3. Zombie Haiku sounds good, love to read it! Biting into heads
    is much harder than it looks,so funny :)

  4. Everybody raves about Name of the Wind, but at first, I wasn't seeing it. But once you get past the framework and into the actual story, it gets really good.
    And I won Zombie Haiku. I'm excited.

  5. Amasing brilliant teaser. Mine is here: http://rundpinne.blogspot.com/2009/09/footsteps-in-dark-teaser-tuesdays.html

  6. zombie haiku rocks! also wanted to say, i didn't know that ghouls were so similar to zombies. interesting segment on ghouls!
    so glad to hear this was a good one. i enjoyed the boyfriend list so am looking forward to this one based on your review.

    BTW: you've just been awarded...


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
