Teaser Tuesday (24th Feb)

teasertuesdays2014e

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!

I am currently reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak and it is living up to the hype much more than I imagined it would.

Teaser:

Papa stretched with his fists closed and his eyes grinding shut, and it was a morning that didn’t dare to be rainy.  They each stood and walked to the kitchen, and through the fog and frost of the window, they were able to see the pink bars of light on the snowy banks of Himmel Street’s rooftops.

Lack of Posts (and sneak peak into the future)

I honestly thought I was over my slump, but as clearly shown by the complete lack of posts on this blog, that is not the case. I really don’t know what’s wrong with me; I just can’t seem to get excited by blogging about books right now. In fairness, I’m barely excited by books either, though the idea of falling in love with a book is something I’m desperate to feel again.

Despite this, I am starting to feel creative again, which is always a good sign, and will hopefully lead to many more posts.  And, instead of reading and reviewing, I’m yearning to read and edit again – so if you’re working on a book and need an editor or proofreader feel free to shoot me an email at tamara.e.epps@gmail.com to discuss prices. (And just so you know, I’m planning a variety of services to do with editing and writing YOUR books and projects, so keep an eye out for that soon.)
