Teaser Tuesdays {The Last Dragonslayer}

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!



My Teasers:
The Last Dragonslayer (The Last Dragonslayer, #1)
"He'd have eaten the leg in under a second if I'd allowed him, but Quarkbeasts, for all their fearsome looks, are obedient to a fault. They are nine-tenths velociraptor and kitchen blender and one-tenth Labrador."

~ page 94, The Last Dragonslayer by Jasper Fforde


Happy Tuesday all! It seems I'm on a fantasy kick these days, having read The Host, now this one, and next (hopefully) Seraphina. What can I say, everybody had returned fantasy stories to the library the day I visited. :) Mr. Fforde is a quirky writer! It took me a few pages to get used to his writing, but I am definitely enjoying the story now. Dragons are quite fascinating! What are you reading this week?

  4. Oh, that's a perfect teaser!! I am yet to read FForde, but this one sure sounds intriguing, especially as I've been in the mood for fantasy lately.

    1. Thanks! :) And would you believe that I still haven't finished it? Crazy-ness! But I had another one I needed to take back to the library, so this one is on hold until I'm done with that one. I know, I don't understand either. ;D
