Teaser Tuesday... Of Course

We here at What Was I Reading? love Teaser Tuesdays, right? For sure.

I'm going to open my current read, City of Glass by Cassandra Clare (a library loaner that is the final installment of The Mortal Instruments trilogy), to a random page and I'll pick out a tasty morsel for you to chew on:

"'Good,' he said, 'you're back. I was beginning to think you'd fallen into a canal.'
"Clary just stared at him, wordless. She wondered if he could read the anger in her eyes."

Not the most awe-inspiring teaser ever, but the book is actually a little slow-going for me. I loved books 1 and 2 of this series, but this one is dragging ever so slightly. You can't necessarily tell it from the teaser, but the first line of dialogue is spoken by the character Jace, whom I love for his snark, and I'm sure the book's going to come out good in the end, but I'm still waiting.

For more information on the series, if you're into YA science fiction/paranormal, check out Cassandra Clare's website.

It's a good teaser! Makes me wonder what she's angry about! I hope the book picks up.

Nice teasers. Have to say, I'm not really a fan of this sort of paranormal romance/thriller, but this series sounds interesting. Hope it ends well!
