Teaser Tuesday

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 "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS (Make sure what you share doesn't give too much away--you don't want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title and author so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!  
    the blade itself cover
         I recently started The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie (which I won from a giveaway at There and Draft Again--hint hint, go check them out!). 

"'Safe,' he croaked to himself, but without much joy.  Safe from food, certainly.  Safe from warmth, without a doubt.

--page 27 

And in case any of you Teaser Tuesday people haven't been bombarded with mention of this before, you are emphatically invited to participate in another blog hop--The Feather and the Rose's very own Save-a-Word Saturday.  That is, if you are valiant enough to rescue words from the abyss of time. 


  1. I actually bought this book for my husband for Christmas. This is only the second time I've ever heard of it. :)

    1. It started out quite spectacularly. :)
