Teaser Tuesday (Nov 6th, 2012)



Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish event held by MizB at Should Be Reading
>
Anyone can join in – 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 and author too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their To Be Read (TBR) lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser today is taken from the long-term reading project I'm engaged in with Robert Jordan's fantasy novel, "The Eye Of The World"



Here's my teaser, taken from the very first lines of the book:

"The palace still shook occasionally as the earth rumbled in memory, groaned as if it would deny what had happened. Bars of sunlight cast through rents in the walls made motes of dust glitter where they yet hung in the air."

Hope you liked it! Let me know what you think, and share your teasers too in a comment.

Good teaser! Although a few pages over where Rand is speaking with the woman in his life is pretty awesome too!

I like how in books dust glitters, it just looks gross when it's in my house! But really, good teaser! Thanks for stopping by Alli's World at mrscaptkirk51.blogspot.com.

That teaser does a great job of describing the aftermath of an earthquake (I'm assuming that's what it's refering to). Thanks for stopping by my blog :)
