Teaser Tuesday and New Books to Read

It’s been awhile since my last Teaser Tuesday,  I have been having Readers Block lately and I am happy it’s over now 🙂

I want to share my teaser for this Tuesday and books I have just bought 3 days ago.

Teaser Tuesday is a fun bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Everyone can play along, all you have to do is simply take the book you are currently reading. And then share 2 ‘teaser’ sentences from any page in the book. I often share more than 2 sentences ;)

Please avoid SPOILER!!

I am currently reading Moribito – Guardian of the spirit by Nahoko Uehashi.

When I heard of  the anime, Seirei no Moribito, I wasn’t really interested even though the opening song was sung by my favorite band,L’Arc~en~Ciel. But,after a friend told  me and a review by my other  friend, Kelly of My Gallery of Words…I became intrigued. about two months ago, I found the book 🙂

So far, I really like it.

My teaser is from page 25 (I have to trans;ate this to English as the book is already been translated  into my native language. Sorry if there are some grammar mistakes.)

“That’s right.” Balsa answered. “And if I failed to  do it, I didn’t get the money.”

The Queen was confused. “Why? Are you being paid after you finished your duty?”

“I am usually paid half in the beginning of the job and another half later. But that was not what I meant. What I am trying to explain is that if I failed in my duty, that means I am already dead.”

Balsa’s job is guarding people.

Here are the books I bought recently 🙂

I visited secondhand bookstore district near my office last Saturday,and I found some treasures. And here are the treasure I bought:

2 Ninja Rantaro Manga. I love the comedy in that manga.

Latitude Zero by Windsor Chorlton, I have never heard of the author but the blurb sounds interesting and the setting is in Indonesia, and that made me really curious.

The Wishing Game by Patrick Redmond. I read the review somewhere and it looked promising.

Walking Dead by Peter Dickinson. Same with The Wishing Game, I have read the review somewhere (I have forgotten where) and it worth to try.

Ruth Rendell’s Road Rage. although this is not the book Caroline had reviewed, but she had made me  curious about Rendell since I read her review.I found several books by her but I decided to buy only 1 as a try out.if I like it,I can always return to that secondhand bookstore.

Beside the secondhand bookstore, I also visited ordinary bookstore and bought Stephen King‘s Full Dark No Stars (planning to read it after I finished Moribito).

Looking forward to a fine reading months ahead 🙂 I hope I don’t get another readers block 🙂

    I don’t know this Ruth Rendell but hope that it is good. I’ve never been disappointed so far.
    I’m annyoed with myself because I bought Full Dar, No Stars in hardback and have still not read it and now it is out in paperback. Grrr. Plus I don’t like reading hardbacks. THey are so big and heavy.
    I hope you get out of your readers block with your new books. I’m interested to see how the others are.

      It’a a chief inspector wexford mystery, does that mean anything to you?
      I hope I won’t be disappointed with it. I have tried Dean Koontz several pages and still haven’t continue it again (It was read during my readers block).

      This book, Moribito, is doing really well, I already read half of it without falling asleep 😉 I hope the other book will also have the same effect.

      I know what you mean about hardcover. I also don’t like it, it’s difficult to carry it everywhere.

        I prefer her other novels but many people say the Inspector Wexford’s are good too. I thought the one I read but the stand alones were far better.

          I wanted write “the one I read was good but”

            I see. I chose Road Rage because the blurb said something like this: the badly decomposed body of a young woman is discovered.

      Hi Laurel, thank you for visiting. It is an interesting book. I hope those new books will be equally enjoyable with my current read

    Did someone he was guarding die then?

    • Novroz
      October 19, 2011

      No, the meaning of that teaser is that she hasn’t failed yet. Everyone she had guarded are alive. She guarded them with her life, she would die first before the person she was guarded is killed by the enemy
