Teaser Tuesday {1}


Teaser Tuesdays are hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading

This is how it goes:

Grab your current read and open to a random page.

Share two teaser sentences from somewhere on that page. (Be careful not to pick any spoilers!)

Post the sentences, along with title and author, on your blog so other TT participants can add it to their TBR list if they like it. 


Lips Touch 
Laini Taylor and Jim Di Bartolo
October 1, 2009, Arthur A. Levine Books (Scholastic, Inc.)

Kizzy had always been fascinated by her - truth be told, she had always identified more with that wild girl who almost sold her soul for the taste of figs than with her grandmother who kept her lips tight shut and never hungered for forbidden things. But though she stared at that photo, and even saw the shape of her own eyes and lips mirrored back at her, Kizzy just couldn't see herself in that long-ago girl, ripe and thrilling and flush with a weird species of beauty the young have no vocabulary for.

 
This book is just lovely, in that old, a bit dark, fairy-tale sort of way. I wish I could give a teaser of Mr. Di Bartolo's illustrations, because they are simply amazing and go so well with the plot.

As it is, it was pretty hard to pick a good teaser without giving it all away.

Thanks for stopping into my blog and to answer your questions - yes - I did the design myself, though someone handled all the code for me.

Awesome cover and interesting teaser. The author has an unusual way of phrasing sentences. I love dark fairytales, I'm definately going to check this one out.
