Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. 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!

The Thorn and the Blossom by Theodora Goss. This book is a unique find because it's a two- sided love story .. with an Accordion- Fold Binding . So you open one side of the book and you are reading Evelyn's version of the story and then you can open the other side and read Brendan's version of the story. So my teasers are one from one side of the story and the other form the second side of the story.. both teasers are from the same scene :) Make sure you return tomorrow because I'm teaming up with my friend Kary from the Once and Future Librarian to do a joint review of The Thorn and the Blossom . Kary will be giving you the review of the book from Brendan's side and I will be giving you the view from Evenlyn's side.

"She was beautiful, there in the forest,with her auburn hair falling in waves down her back, vivid against the green, She looked up at him, her eyes wide, inquisitive. " 15 Brendan's Story- From The Thorn and Blossom

" But his eyes were still the eyes of Brendan Thorne, green with brown flecks. they looked back at her enigmatic and suddenly inscrutable. " page 17 Evelyn's Story - from The Thorn and The Blossom

Remember to leave your links and comments so I can check out your teasers.

I love the lyrical and flowing style of the writing. I reads like poetry even though it is prose. Awesome choices this week!

A double sided-book - say what?! That's so interesting - it's definitely got me wondering a) how it works and b) where I can get a copy! I'll be back tomorrow for your review to see if it's worth my while :)
