Teaser Tuesday - City of Bones, by Cassandra Clare

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just:
* 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 and author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their To Be Read (TBR) Lists if they like your teasers!


So last week I finished Theft of Swords, Volume One of the Riyria Revelations, by Michael J Sullivan, and began reading City of Bones, by Cassandra Clare.  I had not planned to read this series so soon, figuring that I'd read it "someday."  But last weekend I saw the movie trailer for City of Bones, and it looks so good that I desperately want to see it, so I think I should read the book first.  I'm almost halfway through, and I must admit the book is better than I expected.  In this scene, Jace gives Clary a bit of a warning.

The Tease:
""Don't order any of the faerie food," said Jace, looking at her over the top of his menu.  "It tends to make humans a little crazy.  One minute you're munching a faerie plum, the next minute you're running naked down Madison Avenue with antlers on your head.  Not," he added hastily, "that this has ever happened to me.""
 -The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, by Cassandra Clare

    1. What I meant to write was that I'd stay away from Faerie food as well, LOL


  3. Fun teaser! A friend recommended this series, but I have yet to track down book one, or see the trailer. My teaser: Breakfast at Tiffany’s

  4. Ha ha! I liked the first book and wanting to read the next installment. I have it on my Kobo already, I just haven't started it yet.
