Teaser Tuesdays: Graphic Novel


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly event hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
  • Here is how it works.
  • 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 others can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
I'm reading The Discworld Grahpic Novels - The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic by Terry Pratchett! See the inside here




"Great A'Tuin the Turtle comes, swimming through the interstellar gulf.... Through sea-sized eyes, he stares fixedly at the destination. In a brain bigger than a city, he thinks only of the weight. Most of the weight is, of course, accounted for by Berilia, Tubul, Great T'phon, and Jerakeen, on whose star-tanned sholders the Disc of the world rests."

This is a picture of the scene of my Teaser Tuesday. Awesome, eh?

Teaser Tuesdays: Wait Until Twilight by Sang Pak

This is a great teaser. I love the pictures in this graphic novel. I have read The Colour of Magic, but not any others. It seems like a fun series.

I will have to do my teaser this evening after football practice.

Why don't we go ahead and move on in Name. I don't have to much to say on this section since it was a shorter section. The next section is longer so we can go ahead and start into it & I will try to post tonight on your posts and new posts over at B&N.

I am 50/50 on what to start next. Do you want to do Hunger Games so we can get it done then next month we can do the second book? That way if we run over on The Blade Itself we still can get into the second book of Hunger Games too? I know you are excited to get to it. Would that work for you? Let me know.

Talk to you later!

I haven't read any of these before. I must say I like the teaser eventhough I don't think I understood a word of it. The graphic is freaking awesome.

That makes me think of the album Star Turtle by Harry Connick Jr.

oooo discworld! I haven't read those books before even one is listed on my to read soon list. They're interesting I think. :) great teaser.

I have only read one Terry Pratchett book--MORT. But I enjoyed it. I tried watching the first movie, The Hogfather? And I couldn't get into it. I think I'll look into the graphic novels though. :)

Great teaser!

Lizzy said...

Very cool and unique. I love the picture, although I'm not sure I have a reason as to why that is.

Melissa said...

Okay, I just got my teaser up if you would like to stop by. And also check out the messages on my review for The Crown Conspiracy. It is really cool! I am going to post a comment to the author and see if he would mind if I copied his answers to a blog post so others can get to know him. What do you think?

Krista said...

Thanks, everyone, for stopping by!
