Teaser Tuesday – 25th September, 2018 #Brainfluffbookblog #TeaserTuesday


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by The Purple Booker.
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!

This is my choice of the day:

Strange the Dreamer – Book 1 in the Strange the Dreamer series by Laini Taylor

p. 80. He mounted. He was clumsy, and he wasn’t dressed for riding, but he got a leg across, and that seemed to be the main thing. His robes hiked up to his knees. His legs were pale, and his soft-soled slippers were worn nearly through. Lixxa knew her business, and followed when the others filed out through the gate. All eyes were on Lazlo and all were wide—except for Thyon’s, which were narrow with fury. “You can keep the books,” Lazlo told him, and left him standing there. He took one last look at the gathered crowd—scarlet robes and the occasional gray—and spotted Master Hyrrokkin, looking stunned and proud. Lazlo nodded to the old man—the only person besides Thyon who knew what this meant to him, and the only person in the world who might be happy for him—and he nearly wept.


Since he was five years old, Lazlo Strange has been obsessed with the mythical lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than he to go in search of it. Then a stunning opporunity presents itself – in the person of a hero called the Godslayer and a band of legandary warriors – and he has to seize his chance or lose his dream forever.

I treated myself to the paperback version of this book back in the summer when I received some book tokens and decided I needed a treat. Which it certainly is… I was blown away by her Daughter of Smoke and Bone series and love her writing style, which is now sharper and smoother than ever. I’m looking forward to reviewing this one in due course. Have you read it? I think I’m probably the only person in the universe who hasn’t…

  1. I read “Daughter of Smoke and Bone” and loved it, too!! I need to read more of her books. And no, you’re not the only one who hasn’t read “Strange the Dreamer”. I haven’t either! Lol. 🙂

    The plot, as with all Laini Taylor novels, sounds absolutely fascinating! Gotta get this one and dive in!

    This is a very nice understated cover, too, and I might very well order this edition.

    Thanks for sharing! I’ve joined this meme as of today, so here’s my link! CHEERS!! ❤ 🙂


    P.S. I now have comment moderation enabled, because of some stupid SPAM. Hope you still comment! 🙂

    • Glad you also loved ‘Daughter of Smoke and Bone’ – and I highly recommend Strange the Dreamer as it’s even better written than DoSaD. Yes… I love this cover, too:). I’ve visited your Tuesday Teaser – so glad you’ve joined! And of course I will continue to comment – so sorry you got zapped by a spammer. I personally think they should be hung up by their thumbs… x

    • Yes – I still haven’t yet finished it as I have a printed copy which I chose to leave behind when I went away on my writing retreat. Looking forward to tucking into it again, when life gets a tad less hectic.
