Teaser Tuesdays







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!
My teasers this week are from 3 books : The Sum Of All Men:RuneLords{1} by David Farland ,



Teaser: page5
"Dreys had thought he'd disturbed a ferrin as it hunted for mice or for some other bit of cloth to were.He'd turned , expecting to see a pudgy rat-shaped creature run for cover, when the assassin , sprang from the shadows."








The Hippopotamus by Stephen Fry,


Teaser: page1
"You know i support my staff ,Ted.You know i venerate your work."
"I know no bloody such thing.I know you have been told by people cleverer than you that i am a feather in your greasy cap."








and The Liar By Stephen Fry.
Teaser: page1

" Have you ever contemplated ,Adrian , the phenomenon of springs?"
"Coils, you mean?"
"Not coils, Adrian, no Coils not .Think springs of water.Think wells and spas and sources.Well-springs in the widest and lovelyest sence."







I've been busy job hunting and doing a careers information course so the 3 are to make up for not being around much.

  5. a bit more about Ferrin:"About Ferrin—

    Ferrin are small egg-laying mammals about the size of an opossum. Fierce hunters, they were brought to the lands of Rofehavan to control rat populations in castles. The Ferrin have a crude intelligence and can use some tools, such as primitive spears and pry bars. They are notorious scavengers, stealing food, buttons, coins, and cloth—anything that they think is pretty or valuable. By the time that people discovered that Ferrin were a greater nuisance than the rats they hunt, the ferrin population had spread out of control."
