Teaser Tuesday--Anna Dressed in Blood

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!

Here are my teasers:

"I've seen most of what there is to be afraid of in this world, and to tell you the truth, the worst of them are the ones that make you afraid in the light. The things that your eyes see plainly and can't forget are worse than huddled black figures left to the imagination. Imagination has poor memory; it slinks away and goes blurry. Eyes remember for much longer." (Pg. 276)

"I smile quietly. She is with me all the time. I feel stupid now, for not seeing it sooner. But hey, at least we'll have this strange story to tell, love and death and blood and daddy-issues. And holy crap, I am a psychiatrist's wet dream." (Pg. 288)



So, what are you currently reading?


Random Movie Quotes (RMQ)!!!


After a couple of months of doing this meme, I'm finally getting it nailed down.

Let me explain. No, is too much. Let me sum up. (*wink, wink*)

My entire family LOVES both TV and the movies. We all have Random-Movie-Quote-Terets. As in, we blurt out movie/tv show lines in random conversation. This is totally normal at my house. Others who witness it are all kinds of stupefied. And it's not always obvious quotes, mind you. Some of them are ridiculously obscure. Of course, WE all know what we're talking about, but no one else does.

From now on, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, I'm going to end my blog posts with a random movie quote. All my readers get to guess where it came from. You get 1 point for being the first to guess which movie the line is from, another if you can identify the character that said it and another for the actor. (I.e. If one person gets the movie but not the character or actor, someone else can pick up the second point for that, but not for the name of the film once it's been guessed.) And of course I'll announce the winner or winners the following day!

This post will keep track of winners and points. If you accrue 50 points, you will book paraphernalia. If you get 100 points, you'll win a free book. For 200 points, you'll get a package. After that, your point accrual will start over. (In between prizes, you won't start over.)


So, keep up the great guessing and check back to this post (I'll link it to RMQ posts) to see how many points you have! Have fun and good luck! :D
