Teaser Tuesday: Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

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!

Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater.

Blue Lily, Lily Blue –
Scholastic Press

Her father had always been a stranger to her, and whether or not he also turned out to be a six-hundred-year-old crazy person didn’t change that.
— Chapter 30

Blue was more afraid than before. It was easier to be unafraid when you were the one doing the fearful things.
— Chapter 46

Happy New Year, readers! I hope all of you had a good celebration of this slightly arbitrary date to change the numbers in counting what day it is. I finished book two in the Raven Cycle and swiftly moved on to book three ... still in the believe that this would finish the series ... before I realised that it’s called cycle and not trilogy. Oh well, the more the merrier and the fourth book will hopefully released soon-ish. With just as much beautiful twisted prose ... and more heartbreak (maybe, because I don’t know if my heart can take it and I’m rather fond of my heart).

How did you start off your reading year? Brand new series or “legacy reads”?

Happy New Years to you too!

I've been seeing this book around and the cover for some reason reminds me of Edward Scissor Hands.

I'm afraid I'm not familiar with this author, though I've heard her name bandied about quite often. This one sounds quite good. I might have to make an opening for it this year! Cheers!

I've seen this book featured on other blogs and have been curious about it. A three-hundred-year-old crazy person sure sounds interesting!
My Tuesday post features LEARNIN’ THE ROPES.
