DO NOT INCLUDE SPOILERS (make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away, so that you don't ruin the book for others)
Share the title and author so that other participants can add the book to their TBR list is they like your teasers!

This week I’m giving you a teaser from Katie M. John’s The Forest of Adventures (Goodreads). This book is pretty different from ones I’ve read before. For one thing, the author is British and there is no “US” version of the book, so some of the phrases and vocabulary are very different. Also, it’s based off of Arthurian legends. That’s right. King Arthur, sword-wielding knights, the whole shebang. Anyway, here’s my teaser for this week:

Blake Beldevier arrived at college on the first day of the January term. He came with the snow. Perhaps looking back this should have served as an omen; a warning that anybody who was foolish enough to fall in love with him ran the risk of having their heart turned to ice.

These are actually the first lines of the first chapter, after the Preface. So, yeah: Arthurian legends, sword-wielding, sexy knights, and heartbreak and love, too. I’m nearing the end now and can’t wait to see how it turns out.

Oh, and in case you were interested, you can buy THE FOREST OF ADVENTURES on Smashwords for $0.99 USD. You can also get it for Kindle at the same price. That’s just something to consider... a great book at a cheap price! Think about it ;)

Feel free to share your teasers in the comments! I’d love to see what you’re reading.

  10. For that price, I had to buy it, didn't even think twice ;) Looking forward to it!

  11. I love that. "He came with the snow." And I love Arthurian Legend! Yay. Looks like an awesome book.
    Thanks for stopping by! After reading City of Ashes I had to pick up a different book (Experience by Meg Kerr) because I felt like I was getting oversaturated (if that makes sense). But I think so far, I like this book better than the first 2. So that's saying something. I hope you enjoy it!

  12. Yay~ this totally makes me want to read this! Been hearing lots of good things about this book~ will have to put this on my reading pile ;)
