My Teaser:

Without time to contemplate the bitter coldness now swiftly stealing over her body, or how far she ventured from the antechamber that led back into the Sub-Station and precious oxygen, or to note the horrified expressions on the faces of both Mrs. Jennings and Miss Steele, Elinor grasped the sea scorpion with both hands, crushing its carapace between her protective gloves, tugging mightily to dislodge it. Still the thing clung, its claws firmly embedded in her neck.

~ Page 233, Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters by Jane Austen & Ben H. Winters


  1. Nice teaser! Not so sure about the book though, recently read Sense and Sensibility and enjoyed it very much :)

    Mine is from Knife by R.J.Anderson

  2. I'm not sure about the book either, but that certainly is a great teaser!

  3. I am not sure whether to read these books or not. I feel I should read the Austen books themselves first really!

  4. LOL!! I have this here. I hope it's fun.

  5. I think perhaps I should read the originals before I venture into this series. What a neat idea, though. Mine's here.

  6. *LOL* Quite a departure from the original classic, I'd say! :-)

    Tuesday Teaser: Wild Roses by Deb Caletti

  7. I haven't seen this cover before. I don't think I'm going to jump on the popular Jane Austen side.....

  8. Wow! Okay, I guess I'll have to add this one to my list.

    My teaser:

  9. That's different!!!

  10. Awesome teaser. I'm going to have to skip the book though. The zombies were enough for me.

  11. Interesting teaser. I will stick with the original book, however, I did enjoy the teaser.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
