Welcome to the first challenge of the last day of the Wicked Winter Read-a-Thon which is...
Tease at Random
I love taking part in the Teaser Tuesday meme, but I've noticed how sometimes the teasers can be very different to what the book is actually like. So when April and Rebecca gave me the chance to create my own challenge I thought of this and immediately started to wonder what would happen if teasers were taken throughout a book - would they be close to the real story, or would it create a whole new one?
For this challenge I would like you to tease me at random from your current read. All you need to do is to divide your book roughly into thirds and then randomly select two sentences from each third (so six in total) and put them together to give a good tease.
You can either leave your entry in the comments or leave me a link to your blog post.
One winner will be picked at random to win either a £5 gift certificate from Amazon UK or a $7.50 Amazon US gift certificate (winner's choice) so be sure to leave your email, twitter or some other way for me to contact you.
My example is from Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare:
"Well, there's no accounting for taste," Tessa said sweetly, knowing he was trying to goad her, and refusing to take the bait. "What is one person's pleasure is another's poison, don't you find?" (pg 72)
His eyes were raking the room anxiously. She could sense the tension in him, a thrum just under the skin, like the fast-beating heart of a hummingbird. (pg 193)
"You know what this means to me," said Will. "Did you really think I'd delay?" (pg 405)
So go on...tease me :)
And the winner is...Melissa from Melissa's Eclectic Bookshelf! Congratulations :)
