Teaser Tuesdays {Cinder}

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!


Cinder (Lunar Chronicles, #1)My teasers:
"Iko rolled to her side, clasping her metal grippers over her chest. "Prince Kai. Check my fan, I think I'm overheating!"
chapter one, audiobook version of Cinder by Marissa Meyer


So I totally broke one of my reading rules with this book. Usually I don't like to start a book when I know it's the first in a series. I like to wait until at least a couple books are out. But I saw this audiobook at the library over the weekend and thought, "Why not?". (And luckily the sequel will be out in less than a month so yay for that! ;) I popped in the first CD on my way home and as soon as I heard the above lines, I knew I was hooked. I love Iko! I wish she were featured more. But I am really enjoying this story and can finally understand all the rave reviews I've read about it! Ms. Meyer is an excellent writer. Plus Rebecca Soler is doing a fabulous job with all the voices and characters. I think she's half the reason I'm having so much fun! :D Have you read it? What did you think?

  18. Sounds like a gripping story! I think the narrator on audio books can make or break a story. Thanks for stopping by.
