#teasertuesday – A Darker Shade of Magic – Pt 2

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone 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

You would think that I would have finished less-than-400-page book in a week, but the truth is, I didn’t get a huge amount of reading done over the past week, so I’m still in the middle of A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab. It has quite a slow pace, but that works for the story. I’m really loving the world building, and I think I’m actually getting rather attached to the main character, Kell.

darkshadecoversmallLila gave him a derisive glare and fondled the stone. “Oh, no,” she said. “I’m just getting started.”

Technically three sentences, but I’m counting the dialogue all as one. 😛

Here is the GoodReads page, if what you read here intrigues you and you want to find out more.

Check out A Daily Rhythm for more TT posts!

I’ll see you all tomorrow!

      I am! It took a little while to get into, which I think is why it took me nearly a week to read the first 100 pages, but now it’s got going and I’m really enjoying it. And yeah, the cover is pretty gorgeous.

      I’d say so! I knew a bit about the world already because a friend had described the book to me in a fair bit of detail, but if I was going into it fresh, it would be unfolding in a really nice way.


Talk to me! :)
