Thou Shall Read Till Thy Eyes Bleed

Monday 13 July 2009

Teaser Tuesday

*sigh* I'm tired, but before I go to bed, I will post my teaser. It's being posted even before Tuesday. I know, miracles do happen. I won't be back tomorrow to check on you guys till the afternoon, so behave, and leave me some comments-I also accept cupcakes. And please spread the word about the contest! If you don't mind. Do it as a favor to me if you like. I want for many more people to sign up =[

I'm currently reading The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson, and so far so good.

Here is the teaser...

"The doctors removed my wasteland exterior by debriding me, scraping away the charred flesh. They bought in tanks of liquid nitrogen containing skin recently harvested from corpses. The sheets were thawed in pans of water, then neatly arrenged on my back and stapled into place. Just like that, as if they were laying strips of sod over the problem areas behind their summer cabins, they wrapped me in the skin of the dead. My body was cleaned constantly but I rejected these sheets of necro-flesh anyway; I've never played well with others. So over and over again, I was sheeted with cadaver skin.
There I lay, wearing dead people as armor against death."
Pg. 7

I know, long, but so intriguing.But if I were to write just a piece of it, you would have no idea of what it's talking about, so you need it all.

I really like this author's style of writing. I am very fond of the last line in particular.


  1. I WANT this book.

    I was like OMG when I saw you were reading it. I also read your review for rebel angels. I can't help but feel the urge to slap Ann for being so...sniveling. I'm like, GROW A BACKBONE YOU SPINELESS JELLYFISH. Ugh. Felicity has her...secrets. And Pippa makes me want to punch her. x.x I love Gemma, she's so nice and just wants to help... I can't wait to see what you think of the last one. It is EPIC.

  2. Woow. The book sounds.. interesting. x) I haven't heard of this one before, but now I'm intrigued.

  3. I read this last year, great book!

  4. ohhh i always wanted to read this book, now I want to read even more ;)

  5. @everyone Yey!

    @Penguin I know what you mean about Ann, I feel the same way.

  6. She's just...AUGH. *can't find the words* But then I remember, hey, she's fictional! Why am I getting worked up for nothing?!

    I wanna take belly dancing classes too...I'm just super self-conscious. xD

  7. This was a very good book loved his writing style too :)

  8. I just love the cover of this! Great teaser.

  9. Hey! thanx for the advice... i'm starting right now with this book, looks interesting!
