Rica Eat World and Okapi present to you our first Teaser Tuesday, a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.. Since you're a lucky duck, you get two Teaser Tuesday excerpts; there's one from each of us.
Okapi is currently reading Fire by Kristin Cashore, the amazing prequel of Graceling. Here is her two-sentence tidbit:
Next, a team of hairdressers yanked and braided Fire's hair to distraction, exclaiming at the range of reds, oranges, and golds in her hair, its occasional astonishing strand of pink, its impossibly soft texture, its luminosity. It was Fire's first experience actually trying to improve her appearance. - Fire by Kristin Cashore, page 314
Look for a review of both Fire and Graceling in the coming week!
Rica Eat World is currently reading A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.. Her contribution:
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy has a few things to say on the subject of towels. A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. - A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, page 26
