Teaser Tuesday: Week 2 and Contests

Teaser Tuesdays is sponsored by MizB of Should Be Reading. Teaser Tuesdays go like this:
  • 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 teaser this Tuesday is...

"When she emerged from the Wood, she looked toward the grave and knew with a sense of rising dread that something was wrong. She took the last few steps, her legs shaking, and saw that there was a gaping hole where there should have been earth and grass."

--page 118, Ash by Malinda Lo

What's your teaser this week?

Also, here are some more contests going on at other blogs, in more or less chronological order:

First, though I have no idea when this one ends (all the more reason to rush over there now), Reviewer X is giving away Lisa Mantchev's debut (that's been getting a lot of attention), Eyes Like Stars over here. Review X also did a great pub story with Lisa Mantchev that you can read here. I love how acting and reading (and dreams) seem so interconnected.

Ending June 17, as one of their Contest Mondays, The Brain Lair is giving away a SIGNED ARC of The Awakening by Kelley Armstrong here. You know, the sequel to The Summoning. I haven't read this one, but the first was entrancing, so I'm sure this one isn't to be missed. And I did mention that it's SIGNED, right?

Now a big hit: Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. You know you've been dying to get your hands on a copy of this one, and now you can. Head over to Connie's blog LitMuse by June 19th for a chance to win a copy. It's right over here.

For those of you who have read Carlos Ruiz Zafon's The Shadow of the Wind (and even for those who haven't), Zafon's next book just came out (today!) and Reading and Ruminations is giving you the chance to win an ARC of this book, The Angel's Game (along with The Shadow of the Wind if you haven't read it or a gift card to a bookstore). So, head over here by June 20th to sign up for the giveaway.

Next, Fantastic Book Review is hosting a contest called Magicians, Demons & Selkies – Oh My! (I know, I love the contest title, too). If you enter by June 20th, you have the chance to win a copy of either The Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan or Sea Change by Aimee Friedman.

And now, here's a chance to win an updated (and very unique) retelling of the classic fairy tale Beauty and the Beast - Crazy Beautiful by Lauren Baratz-Logsted. Head over to The Story Siren for a shot to win this adaptation as long as you enter by June 26th.

In Bed With Books has a pretty massive contest going on that you can check out right here. If you post why you're life could be a good reality TV show, you could win: the complete Elite series (The Elite, In Too Deep, and the soon-to-be-released Simply Irresistible) by Jennifer Banash, Don't You Forget About Me (Gossip Girl #11) by Cecily Von Ziegesar, Envy (Lux #3) by Anna Godbersen, and Just Listen by Sarah Dessen.

And the last one for today, Jessica at Eat Sleep Dance Read is having her first contest (yay!) celebrating the beginning of summer over here. She's giving away Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles and you can enter until June 30th.

P.S. Upcoming reviews include Fragile Eternity, Ash, and Storm Glass. I'll try to have them all up by the end of the weekend.
