Here is my teaser:

“Because I think that’s why Alex is so pissed off. You want him to draw one thing and he wants to draw everything. Mister Farmer probably told him he was drawing too much.”
“Graciela, part of my job is to help you understand the expectations that will be put upon you in the real world.”
“Why?” she asked. She sat down across from me. Now, I guess we were getting down to it.
My answer didn’t require a lot of thought. “Because it would be wrong of me to give any of you false assurances about what you’ll be when you grow up.”

~ p. 31 Work of Art: An Intention of Flowers by Ken La Salle

I’m waiting for…

Title: The Hazel Wood

Author: Melissa Albert

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy

Seventeen-year-old Alice and her mother have spent most of Alice’s life on the road, always a step ahead of the uncanny bad luck biting at their heels. But when Alice’s grandmother, the reclusive author of a cult-classic book of pitch-dark fairy tales, dies alone on her estate, the Hazel Wood, Alice learns how bad her luck can really get: Her mother is stolen away―by a figure who claims to come from the Hinterland, the cruel supernatural world where her grandmother’s stories are set. Alice’s only lead is the message her mother left behind: “Stay away from the Hazel Wood.”

Alice has long steered clear of her grandmother’s cultish fans. But now she has no choice but to ally with classmate Ellery Finch, a Hinterland superfan who may have his own reasons for wanting to help her. To retrieve her mother, Alice must venture first to the Hazel Wood, then into the world where her grandmother’s tales began―and where she might find out how her own story went so wrong.

This book sounds so cool, and I love the cover. What are you waiting for this week?

Here is my teaser:

“I’m his granddaughter, Alex. I’m protecting him.” She stepped in front of Lord Odin.
“Seriously? A girl? You can’t protect him. No one can.” His eyes focused on the green stone around Alex’s neck. He cleared his throat. “I’m here to avenge Shinjan’s death.” Bedlam laughed again. “You’re gonna die! You’re both gonna die! My lightning staff will take care of you.”

Title: The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air #1)

Author: Holly Black

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy

Of course I want to be like them. They’re beautiful as blades forged in some divine fire. They will live forever.

And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.

Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.

To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences.

In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.

This book sounds amazing! The plot sounds so cool, and I love faeries, so I’ll have to read this.

Here is my teaser:

Mrs. Humphries spoke in an urgent whisper. “He is aware, but no, he didn’t ask me to come.”
Who the hell is Uri?
“Did you help the boy cross?” Milly spoke the words quickly. Speaking was about the only thing she could do quickly, Grape guessed.
“No. That was all Uri and the boy.”
“So Uri will help a stranger but not me?”
“That boy is no stranger,” Mrs. Humphries hissed.

Here is my teaser:

“Move here,” growled one of the soldiers, and I could see the end of his machine gun go up, showing me he was aiming at them.
Amanda started crying.
“Please…” said my mom as she moved, protecting Amanda. “We’ve done nothing, we’re just villagers.”
