Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Ambrosia at The Purple Booker. Here are the rules if you want to play along:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “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 TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
This week’s teaser comes from The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien
The talk did not die down in nine or even ninety-nine days. The second disappearance of Mr. Bilbo Baggins was discussed in Hobbiton, and indeed all over the Shire, for a year and a day, and was remembered much longer than that.
This is the beginning of chapter 2. I have a feeling this book is going to be slow going for me, mostly because it is very hard to read Tolkien fast.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic:
Top Ten Purple, Yellow, and/or Green Book Covers
The inspiration for this topic is because those are the colors for Mardi Gras, which is today! If you celebrate, hope you have a wonderful day today!
This was a fun list to put together. I chose books that I have given five star reviews. The link will take you to my review if you are interested. So here we go. In no particular order:
3). Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh (*note: I don’t think I’ve actually reviewed this one on the blog, but it’s amazing. I will have to review it soon.)
4). Stain by A.G. Howard (Probably one of my all-time favorite book covers)
6). Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor (Daughter of Smoke & Bone #3 – Oddly enough, I don’t have a review for this one either, although I did review book #1 and book #2. This one is also very good.)
Please leave your teasers or top tens in comments!
