Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by MizB of Books and Beat.
Here are the rules:
1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a page
3. Pick out 2 lines that are SPOILER FREE
4. Name the title, author, etc
Multiple teasers for this one!! Because as you all likely know, I ADORE this series!! One's a bookish one that will resonate with a lot of us booklovers and the other is a Janco teaser at its finest!! ;)
"He gripped the page to rip it free from the book.
Yelena stopped his hand. 'The library won't like that.'
Since so many student magicians had spent long hours in here researching over many years' time, magic had infused every inch of this place--the library was very protective of the books." p 364*
Janco picked up the top half of a broken mannequin.
'This place went bust.'
Everyone groaned at the bad joke.
'Come on, guys. That's a classic.'
No one agreed.
Ari turned to Valek. 'Please tell me you need Janco to travel far away from here for a dangerous undercover mission.'
'Let me guess,' Yelena said. 'He's been driving you crazy.'
'Janco and boredom don't mix well.' p 408*
