TBR/Teaser Tuesday September 15, 09

Hello!

TBR Tuesday was started by my lovely friend Korianne. Here are some of my to reads:

Dating Hamlet by Lisa Fieldler

Goodreads Description:

"It isnt easy dating a prince, especially when that prince is Hamlet. It could easily drive a young girl to madness, or so it would seem.Since the death of his father, Ophelias beloved Hamlet has descended into a deep depression. To make matters worse, the Danish court is filled with lies and deceit. Was Hamlets father murdered by King Claudius? Is Polonius truly the father of Laertes? Who can be trusted as a friend? And who is to be feared as an enemy? It is up to clever Ophelia, with the help of her friends, to find a way to save her prince and herself. Only then can she finally reveal the truth about what really happened in the famed castle at Elsinore. With Shakespeares classic play as a frame, Lisa Fiedler gives voice to Ophelia in a gripping novel full of romance, ghosts, and a touch of alchemy."

I've wanted to read this ever since I read Romeo's Ex by the same author. It looks very good!

Dreamland
by Sarah Dessen

Goodreads Description:

"Wake up, Caitlin

Ever since she started going out with Rogerson Biscoe, Caitlin seems to have fallen into a semiconscious dreamland where nothing is quite real. Rogerson is different from anyone Caitlin has ever known. He's magnetic. He's compelling. He's dangerous. Being with him makes Caitlin forget about everything else-her missing sister, her withdrawn mother, her lackluster life. But what happens when being with Rogerson becomes a larger problem than being without him?"

I loved Sarah Dessen's This Lullaby and Just Listen. This book looks different from her other novels, and I'm intrigued by it.





Teaser Time!


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!
"With the chant, Jonas knew, the community was accepting him and his new role, giving him life, the way they had given it to the newchild Caleb. His heart swelled with gratitude and pride.

But at the same time he was filled with fear. He did know what his selection meant. He did not know what he was to become.

Or what would become of him."

-The Giver by Lois Lowry
