Teaser Tuesday (5)

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This week's teaser is from The Unidentified by Rae Mariz

"“She said Trendsetters were trying a new strategy.That they wanted to be relevant to a different crowd. That being a rebel never goes out of style.”"

I'm actually kind of enjoying this book now, though the beginning was a little shaky. The premise and setting are both pretty interesting, but the writing isn't quite as good as I'd hoped. Mariz is really good at describing environments though, and the humor is definitely a redeeming quality. :)

I just saw this at Literary Exploration, who found it via The YA Sisterhood. :) This seriously just made my day!!!

Doesn't it look AMAZING? I am so excited! :D I was a little worried when I saw the cast, but I think they'll do a fine job. I can't wait for release!!!

Review: Plain Kate

Friday, November 11, 2011

Title : Plain Kate
Author : Erin Bow
Published : September 1st 2010
Page count : 314
Series : N/A 
Format : Harcover

 Plain Kate lives in a world of superstitions and curses, where a song can heal a wound and a shadow can work deep magic. As the wood-carver's daughter, Kate held a carving knife before a spoon, and her wooden talismans are so fine that some even call her “witch-blade”: a dangerous nickname in a country where witches are hunted and burned in the square.

For Kate and her village have fallen on hard times. Kate’s father has died, leaving her alone in the world. And a mysterious fog now covers the countryside, ruining crops and spreading fear of hunger and sickness. The townspeople are looking for someone to blame, and their eyes have fallen on Kate.

Enter Linay, a stranger with a proposition: In exchange for her shadow, he’ll give Kate the means to escape the angry town, and what’s more, he’ll grant her heart’s wish. It’s a chance for her to start over, to find a home, a family, a place to belong. But Kate soon realizes she can't live shadowless forever -- and that Linay's designs are darker than she ever dreamed.
