Teaser Tuesday with Days of Blood & Starlight

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!
I loved the first book in Laini Taylor's series. It was original and exciting. This one is giving me some troubles. I took a while for me to be able to get into. I almost set it down a few times. I'm over halfway through and I'm still not hooked. The world Laini created is magnificent. The plot and the characters in this book, well, not so much.
Here's your teaser:
"Good girl."
She bristled at the words and the caressing tone in which he spoke them. Am I? she wondered as she sank to her knees to raise the dead. (page 70) 

Join me tomorrow for the start of The Harbinger blog tour!

  1. Aw, sorry to hear this book has been so disappointing for you, especially since you loved the first one so much!

    But yay, blog tour! Can't wait! :D

  2. I've read some books that were hard for me to get into also. Sometimes, you just gotta stretch yourself as a reader if you feel something resonates with you.

  3. Oh I like this teaser. I enjoyed the first book in this series too, but like you, found this one more difficult. I had it from the library and needed to bring it back, so I didn't push myself to finish it. I wasn't feeling it and didnt want to be rushed. I might take it out again at another time. Hope it gets better for you as you continue on.

  9. I'm glad it isn't only me who felt this way. I didn't enjoy this book as much as the first. It picked up near the end, but I wasn't as satisfied.

  11. Shame it didn't live up to the first for you. Glad you gave it a chance though!

  12. Great teaser, but I'm sorry to hear you aren't enjoying it as much as the first book -- I hate it when that happens! Sometimes it is just so hard for the sequel(s) to live up to those debut books! Here's my TT post!
