Tuesday Book Blogging: Teaser Tuesday

I don't know what's up with me that my tolerance for books is so low these days. I started Time and Again last week and gave up fairly quickly. It was too slow for my taste. Too much description. I'm a plot girl, me. Then I hoovered down an early Spenser book, which was fine, but I was surprised to find him tiresome this time around. Maybe we've known each other too long.

BlackoutSo I'm very glad that I have now dived into a book I'm enjoying immensely: Blackout by Connie Willis. I need to read more of her books. I've enjoyed all the ones I've read. And I'm happy that this is part 1 of 2. I learned about it because the second book, All Clear, was on the new book table at the library.

Apparently, it wasn't supposed to be two books, but I don't mind. Maybe I'm not totally book-averse after all.

At any rate, here's the teaser:

"You are not going to St. Paul's or World War II or the World Trade Center. You are going back to school. After you've passed your A-levels and been admitted to Oxford and the history program, then we'll discuss your going to--"

"By then, it'll be too late," Colin muttered.

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading where you can find all the details.

This book's on my list at the library. Glad you're enjoying it. Here's my teaser from The Queen's Rival.

Sorry you didn't like "Time and Again," one of my longtime favorites - but look forward to hearing what you think of "Blackout" and "All Clear," which I actually bought in hardback, no less, so I could read them as soon as they came out.

Regarding Time and Again...I want to tell it, "It's not you, it's me." I feel like saying that to most of the books I pick up and put down. I'm clearly working through reading issues at the moment.
