“I spent my life folded between the pages of books.In the absence of human relationships I formed bonds with paper characters. I lived love and loss through stories threaded in history; I experienced adolescence by association. My world is one interwoven web of words, stringing limb to limb, bone to sinew, thoughts and images all together. I am a being comprised of letters, a character created by sentences, a figment of imagination formed through fiction.”

Teaser Tuesday: Raised by Wolves by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

woah! Can you believe it's almost our one year anniversary? woah.

It's Teaser Tuesday!


Teaser Tuesday's is a weekly meme hosted by Miz B of Should Be Reading and asks you to :

1. Grab your current read

2. Open to a random page

3 . Share 2 "teaser" sentences also citing the title of the book and the author and in that way people can have great recommendations if they like the "teaser".

4. Please avoid spoilers!

Todays teaser comes from Raised by Wolves by Jennifer Lynn Barnes (because this is the book that Rach  is currently reading)

"Katie nosed at the carpet and then gave it a good chew. When it proved recalcitrant enough that she couldn't pull it up, she growled.

"Who's a fierce little girl?" I asked her. "Who's going to kick butt and take names and help her big sister get into all kinds of trouble someday?"

Devon snorted. "Sometimes, I think the term bad influence was invented specifically with you in mind."

"Lake, could you please stop sweet-talking the weapons? It's kind of freaking me out."

"Not going to walk me to the door?" I asked, pretending to be shocked at his lack of gallantry.
"Of course I am. many would think that a bonny lass such as yerself wouldst be able to stay out of trouble for a distance of fifteen feet, but I know better."
"Did you just use the words yerself and wouldst in the same sentence? You can't be a pirate and a courtier at the same time, Dev. It just isn't done."

Jen is the queen of funny sarcastic wittiness.

Before you leave, please enjoy this speculation of the keyboard:

I love how my brain knows the keyboard so well…its like my instrument. My fingers already have what I want typed out before even I know what it is I want…. And I can think in sentences like I'm talking and I will have it out on the page in record time…a pen takes much longer and is not up to speed with you brain. Who ever created the keyboard….well I love that person. Now I cant stop staring at my keyboard in awe…
