Well! First of all, thanks to everyone who's been reading this blog (even though they may not have been commenting XD). I kind of miss writing, as I've been caught up with some editing stuff lately and have put my stories on hold. So I guess blogs are the only way I can keep my hand in. I've been considering creating a blog that would feature my stories... or should I just put them in here as well?

Anyway, as you all know, I am a sucker for these fantasy books. A friend of mine recently lent me the Percy Jackson and the Olympians books, and I've been reading them. Would you guys believe I tore through the first five books in one sitting? *gulp* I love them. *burp, excuse me* Is there more where that came from? *puppy eyes*

So, without further ado, our teaser for today comes from "Percy and the Lightning Thief," the first in the Olympians series by Rick Riordan.

"Where I had been standing a moment before was a ragged hole in the side of the Arch, with melted metal steaming around the edges.

Great, I thought. We just blowtorched a national monument."

-p. 156, "Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief" by Rick Riordan

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 (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!

  2. Alayne Says:

    I loved this book! Just read it myself. I can't read the second one for a while though because I have a lot of ARCs I must pay attention to, but I can't wait to continue the series! My teaser is at The Crowded Leaf.


  3. Sarah Says:

    Wow 5 books in 1 sitting - I thought I was a fast reader but that is impressive LOL. Great teaser - I'm going to have to check out this series :o)


  4. Jennifer Says:

    I like the teaser, suspense, tension and a hint oh humour. My TT: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/01/teaser-tuesdays-highlanders-destiny.html


  5. Fantastic teaser! My son and I love the Percy Jackson series. They are never short of action and over the top humor. :-) I can't wait for the movie next month.


  6. Hannah Says:

    I so have not read this series yet, but that teaser was fantastic! I'm definitely interested now.


  7. Laya Says:

    @Sarah, @Kaye: I didn't even notice what I was doing, I just wanted to know what would happen next! LOL. Only when I was almost through book five did I realize I'd finished them all. Now I'll have to go back and reread them at a slower pace to savor them.

    @Alayne, @Jennifer, @Stephanie, @Hannah: Yup, I really loved reading it! They go into my "books to be savored over and over again" pile. And I can't wait for the movie to come out in February!


  8. Great teaser! I definitely want to read the book before the movie comes out. I subscribed! Here is my teaser if you are interested: http://emmamichaels.blogspot.com/2010/01/teaser-tuesday_26.html
