Teaser Tuesday #1: Fire by Kristin Cashore

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

(1) Grab your current read.
(2) Open to a random page.
(3) Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page and 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 Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their To-Be-Read Lists if they like your teasers.

This is my first time doing the Teaser Tuesday Meme so I'm very excited. For this week, I'm actually reading two books, Fire by Kristin Cashore and The Iron King by Julie Kagawa. I'm lagging behind on The Iron King because I'm totally engrossed reading Fire. Here's one wonderful teaser for everyone:

She asked it very quietly. "Why are you kind to me?" He paused, watching her hands that pulled at the grass. He crouched down to her eye level. "Because I trust you."

~pp.163 of Fire by Kristin Cashore

I'm loving this book so much! I must admit that I get frustrated by the fact that Fire is being wanted by everyone because of her beauty but when Prince Brigan entered the picture, it's a totally different story. Can't wait to finish this book and start Graceling!

Please leave a comment with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your Teaser Tuesdays in a comment here if you don’t have a blog.


  1. That sounds really good. I haven't read any of Kristin Cashore's books yet, but Graceling's been on my list for ages.

    Here's mine: http://tobisummers.blogspot.com/2012/08/teaser-tuesday-8712.html

    1. It's actually my first Cashore novel and I wasn't disappointed. ^_^ Can't wait to start Graceling and the third book in the series Bitterblue.

      Happy reading! Thanks for dropping by!

  2. Beautiful book cover, and interesting teaser. I guess she's pulling at the grass because she's nervous. How sad that she's surprised when someone is kind to her.
    My teaser is from HOT ISSUES, COOL CHOICES.

    1. Yes, she was a bit nervous. Thanks for dropping by my Teaser Tuesday.

      Happy reading!

  3. Aw, I love this book. I agree, though, I think it's odd that Brigan is the ONLY one who can resist Fire. I get that he's supposed to have superior mental control or whatever, but he shouldn't be the only one who does.

    Thanks for stopping by my teaser!

    1. I can't resist Brigan! I love his character. Have you read Graceling? I am going to start it this weekend. ^_^
