Teaser Tuesday (01.05.10)

January 5, 2010

teasertuesdays31Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly event hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. It’s easy enough to play along, just follow the Teaser Tuesdays link for rules.

Today’s teaser comes from Outlander by Diana Gabaldon.

“And I am afraid that even at my advanced age, I have not entirely outgrown the urge to seek adventure. Things are much more settled now than they used to be” – he heaved a sigh that might have been one of regret – “but there is always the possibility of robbery along the road, or attack near the borders.” (p. 208)

I am very much enjoying Outlander so far, but it’s a chunkster, so there’s a good chance you’ll be seeing a couple more teasers from it.

    I think I’ll enjoy seeing a few more teasers from it–a life of adventure is always fun. Kaye—the road goes ever ever on

    I have the first 7 Outlander books but no time for them at the moment. I’ll keep checking out your teasers though! Mine is at The Crowded Leaf.

    Outlander has been in my TBR pile for ages. But due to the huge chunk of a book that it is, I’ve been putting it off. One of these days though, one of these days!

    My TT

    I’ve never read Outlander, but you are definitely tempting me. Nice teaser.

    I have been meaning to pick this one up for years. Maybe this year… :) Excellent teaser this week!

    I am re-reading Watership Down by Richard Adams this week. You can find my teaser here.

    I’ve already got this one on my TBR list – but I know it’ll take me forever to finish it once I start it. Glad you’re enjoying it. Very nice teaser!

    Enjoy and happy reading to you this week!

    My teaser this week is from The Age of Innocence.

    Hey alita:

    RYC: The first book in the trilogy is called Voodoo Dreams. The author has also a few other books that have the same “voodoo queen”, Marie Laveau, the protagonist in Yellow Moon, but I haven’t read any of those.

    One of my favorite books ever…enjoy your time there!

    I really want to read this series but the size is so intimidating! I look forward to seeing more TT’s from it, maybe it will inspire me to finally get cracking! Happy reading :)
