Teaser Tuesday #30

My resolution post will have to wait until I settle on some resolutions. Which may not be until closer to the new semester starting, alas.

Before my teaser, here's at least one book-related goal: I've set my 2013 Goodreads Challenge. One book per week this year, for a total of 52. This is less than the last two years (100 each), but I'm adding a new rule for myself: No re-reads this time; they have to be fresh books. However, I am still including textbooks if I read the entire thing. After all, textbooks are a big reason I don't do as much reading as I'd like.

Okay, now for the teaser:

The Night Circus, Erin Morgenstern

The twins remain perfectly pleased with the arrangement, receiving irregular lessons on innumerable subjects and reading every book they can get their hands on, piles of them often ending up in the wrought-iron cradle they would not part with after it was outgrown.

At this late hour there are no patrons lingering in this particular tent, and it is unlikely that any other visitors to the circus will stumble upon it in the remaining hours before dawn.

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

I haven't read this book, but I got it for my mom for Christmas because I'd heard good things about it.

Erin Morganstern was at the Texas Book Festival last year, and I've finally gotten around to the book on my to-read list! And that's after putting her near the top-- or so I thought. So far, so good!

I really liked The Night Circus when I read it last year. Wonderful teaser!
