A Random Blog of Everything I like
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!!
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 🙂
