Teaser Tuesday: The Demon’s Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To 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!

The Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan.

The Demon’s Lexicon –
Simon & Schuster Children's UK

The pipe under the sink was leaking again. It wouldn’t have been so bad, except that Nick kept his favorite sword under the sink.
— Chapter 1

There are several witty and funny headings ready for what just happened, but the reality is that I was completely uninspired by my current reads to pick a teaser and then I started (not so) absently browsing and miraculously (as it happens) ended up on my trusted book retailer site. And while I was wondering which book to pick, I thought about books I desperately want to read ... like Sarah Rees Brennan’s Unmade, which isn’t out until September. Next thing I know, my kobo is updating with my latest purchase ... must be the Irish elves at work ... or something. But honestly, those first two sentences are sort of perfect and if I can’t trust my fragile reader’s heart into the hands of ... oh, wait, what have I done?! (For the record: I know what I did and I’m perfectly fine with it ... more than that, should have done this much earlier) *walks happily glum into certain despair*

What are your latest impulse buys? Or do you have an iron-clad purchase regimen? Let’s hear from you in the comments.

I'm not sure it's my kind of book, but I"m glad you are enjoying it. I don't do a lot of impulse buys. I tend to over-think everything.

I'm spotlighting The Moon Sisters this week.
