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!
