TEASER TUESDAY

Teaser Tuesday is a curious meme I’ve caught on some of the blogs I follow, and it’s a creation of Miz B over at A Daily Rhythm.

All you have to do is:

• 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 Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Teaser Tuesday

This week’s quotes come from the latest addition to the Vorkosigan Saga (one of my favorite book series, by the way):

At age fifteen, Lon had acquired nearly his full adult height, and his people ran to tall; the rest of his development still lagged behind. The general effect was of one of those primary school science experiments where Bean Plant No. 3 was raised without light, growing long and thin and pale and barely able to stand upright.

E-page 85 of Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen, by Lois McMaster Bujold

This is a great example of Ms. Bujold’s delightful sense of humor, an element that’s never missing from her books, even the most drama-oriented ones.

  1. Ah, Vorkosigan! One of those sci-fi sagas I hope to catch up with one day. I read the first two in the chronology, the books about Miles’ parents. It’ll be a while til I get to this one that’s for sure, but that’s a great quote.
