Teaser Tuesday #11: Assassin's Apprentice

teasertuesdays31Teaser 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 “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • Make sure you do not include spoilers
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Teaser Tuesday #11: Assassin's Apprentice

"I wonder if I can write this history, or if on every page there will be some sneaking show of a bitterness I thought long dead. I think myself cured of all spite, but when I touch pen to paper, the hurt of a boy bleeds out with the sea-spawned ink, until I suspect each carefully formed black letter scabs over some ancient scarlet wound."

This book has been on my shelves for quite a while now, so I finally decided to pick it up, and now I'm asking myself why I didn't earlier. Hobb has gotten me hooked with her beautiful writing style. I can't wait to finish it.

This probably wouldn't be my normal type of read, but I love that teaser! Excellent pick :)

@ Melissa; Usually I don't read this kind of books either, but once in a while I enjoy a good fantasy (: This is definitely a good one.

Happy Teaser Tuesday!
My teaser this week is for:
Forget-Her-Nots by Amy Brecount White which is on sale right not for only 5.19 on Amazon for new hardback!!!! I figure I should spread the word since it is such a popular YA book and the author is so nice. I have the link up if you want to check it out!

Sincerely,
