Teaser Tuesday with City of Bones

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • 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 other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
City of Bones is the first book in Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instruments series. It's another YA paranormal that I'm giving a try. So many people have recommended it. I'm liking it so far. I have all the books sitting on my kitchen table. So if I get on a roll, I can keep going!
Here's the teaser:
"Real elves are about eight inches tall," Jace pointed out. "Also, they bite." (page 118)

  1. I enjoyed City of Bones. Haven't had a chance to read any of the others in the series yet. Cute teaser! My teaser is from REBIRTH by Sophie Littlefield.

  5. Love the teaser. The books are on my shelf--well, the first three and the first of the prequel series--but I haven't had a chance to read them yet.

  6. Jenny, I'm going to read on. Hopefully you'll get a chance too!

    Rebecca, I really just had to do a random pick. It would have taken too long to pick on myself!

    Aubrie, you'll love it!

    Amy, Jace is my favorite. He cracks me up all the time!

    Cherie, I'll have to get my hands on the prequel after I finish the others.

  7. I have to admit that I have only read City of Bones, I loved it but I have never had the time to get to the others. Jace is hysterical. I remember that line so it's a great one to share.

    Here is my TT.
