Teaser Tuesday: September 4

20120508-160402.jpg

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.

“It is a condition of monsters that they do not perceive themselves as such. The dragon, you know, hunkered in the village devouring maidens, heard the townsfolk cry ‘Monster!’ and looked behind him.”

What’s YOUR teaser this week?

    • Read it!!! Mark my words, this book will be one that you’ll love and remember for always~ Looks like we share lots in common, philosophy is definitely an interesting subject to look into!

    • Poor dragon, being called a monster but never acknowledges himself, a self-delusional creature… Us humans do that quite often too, don’t we? :/ Any way, thanks for stopping by too!

    • Haha, I have too many book on my TBR I’m losing count!! So many books to read… so little time to read them! Hope you’ll get to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone soon, thanks for stopping by! :)

    • /bumps list/ Be sure it read this soon!! The sequel’s out in November, so you might want to get them both cos the cliffhanger can kill >.< Ahhh, loving this book too much :D

    • Dragons are a favourite in Chinese myths, and a controversial creature at that too! Honestly, I don’t mind having a few cute baby dragons at home too ;) Have a great week!

    • No doubt it is interesting, there’s lots of fresh new magical ideas that blew me away! And this cover is what I call the perfect mix of beauty + significance, read to find out! :)

  1. HAHAHA the dragon is almost cute xD

    But I don’t understand why dragons specifically devour maidens. Do they Quality Control their food?!

    • What almost cute? It is cute!!! Though I think the author never meant it that way kekeke. Um, cos there are maidens (hint: moi) who are totally worth going after… Not that I want to be devoured!! >.<

      OH, and for the heros to have their chance at 英雄救美 ;)

    • When I first read that passage, I merely scoffed at the dragon’s stupidity but it’s self-delusional makes me pity him too… Being called a monster must be horrible >.<

    • OH YES GO RE-READ IT YES GO NOW READ WHEEEE~

      Sorry, pardon my excitement and incoherency >.< Yup, Days of Blood and Starlight is out in November, I’ve got the cash ready!! ;)

    • Great minds think alike ;) To me, the conclusion was more of a heart-break than anything else, and the haunting question of humanity ahhh now I’m slipping back into the sorrow again :( In any case, enjoy your week!

  2. Hey Alicia. OMG I have this in my shelf for a couple of months now. Arrrgghh I can’t seem to find the time to squeeze it in my reading schedule. Tsk! Love love love the teaser, now I want to start reading it. :)

    • How could you!! /rages/ Off you go to read this now– It’s has too much awesomesauce to be missed, just the thought of those magical moments and chapters make me want to pick it right up to read again! :D

      • Hahaha. I am still looking at it but definitely bumped it up in my pile. I am so jealous of you guys who are currently reading it and have read it. I feel so left out. :P Oi, looking forward to your review.

    • Almost everyone has more-than-positive review for this one, going to mark it down for my future generations to all read and worship it! /dances around/ Haha, don’t mind me, enjoy reading!
