Teaser Tuesday #9

THE RULES:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Open to a random page.
  • Share two “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 Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

A few days ago I finally picked up The Mad Scientist’s Daughter by Cassandra Rose Clarke, a book that’s been on my radar for a few years now – ever since I read her Assassin’s Curse duology (a super-fun adventure featuring an assassin, a pirate and a curse). The Mad Scientist’s Daughter has turned out to be quite a different kind of book, however; less fun and more thought-provoking, but really enjoyable nevertheless. It is, at face value, about a girl who falls in love with a robot, but the story is much deeper than it initially appears.

Teaser #1:

His normalcy was contagious. Her mother would approve.

Teaser #2:

The monitor flickered black, then bright blue, then switched to the screensaver of floating, iridescent jellyfish. Finn had severed the connection from his end. He was gone. Her father’s house was gone. Replaced by jellyfish that looked like ghosts.

[Teaser Tuesday was created by MizB over at A Daily Rhythm.]
