Teaser Tuesdays #5


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.


My teasers:


The air is heavy with smoke; I've been exposed to it for so long now that my senses are not as offended. Lilac twists my hair into dozens of little braids and douses them with water; "to bring out the curls." — page 35, "Fever" by Lauren DeStefano


And two more from the first chapter in the final Artemis Fowl book by Eoin Colfer, which will be out in July. This chapter was released a few day ago and I couldn't resist. *-*

 
Either that boy is the sanest creature on Earth, he thought, or he is so disturbed that our tests cannot even begin to scratch the surface. — chapter 1, The Last Guardian (Artemis Fowl, #8) by Eoin Colfer
"May the fours be with you," the centaur whispered to Artemis his standard greeting/joke for the past six months. — chapter 1, The Last Guardian (Artemis Fowl, #8) by Eoin Colfer

My teasers:






Never mind that I had only two pairs of gloves to my name to begin with, I wasn't a well-bred lady. I might look the part in my secondhand dresses with the added silk ruchings and delivcate embroidery, but I'd done all that work myself, sewing until my fingers bled, to have then ready for this journey.

Waiting On Wednesday


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.




My pick:




The Calling by Kelley Armstrong

~Expected publication: April 10th 2012~


(Summary from Goodreads):

Maya and her friends--all of whom have supernatural powers--have been kidnapped after fleeing from a forest fire they suspect was deliberately set, and after a terrifying helicopter crash they find themselves pursued by evildoers in the Vancouver Island wilderness.
 
 
 
I love all of Kelley Armstrong's book, from her adult to young adult series so I'm sure the second book in the Darkness Rising series won't be a disappointment!

The truth was, until her secret was discovered, Lenobia had found happiness, and it was due to three things—sunrise and horses—and the young man she'd chanced upon because of them.

Waiting on Wednesday (2)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.






This week I have chosen one of the books I look forward the most and the cover has been revealed recently too!


Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost

~Expected publication: June 26th 2012~


(Summary from Goodreads):


She’s a mortal with dark powers...

After a tragic accident scarred her body and destroyed her dreams, Leila never imagined that the worst was still to come: terrifying powers that let her channel electricity and learn a person’s darkest secrets through a single touch. Leila is doomed to a life of solitude... until creatures of the night kidnap her, forcing her to reach out with a telepathic distress call to the world’s most infamous vampire...

He’s the Prince of Night...

Vlad Tepesh inspired the greatest vampire legend of all — but whatever you do, don’t call him Dracula. Vlad’s ability to control fire makes him one of the most feared vampires in existence, but his enemies have found a new weapon against him – a beautiful mortal with powers to match his own. When Vlad and Leila meet, however, passion ignites between them, threatening to consume them both. It will take everything that they are to stop an enemy intent on bringing them down in flames
















I can't wait for this first book in Jeaniene Frost's new series 'Night Prince' about Vlad! He's always been one of my most favorite characters in Night Huntress, so I'm really excited for this book! June can't come fast enough! And just look at the cover! ♥
