Teaser Tuesday (6): Revolution

Title: Revolution
Author: Jennifer Donnelly

I'm not sure how to feel about this. Embarrassed? Pissed off? I mean, I just sang him a song I wrote myself, a song that's really important to me, and he fell asleep.

I am really enjoying this book. I saw it in the bookstore, picked it up and read the back and thought, Hmm, looks interesting. So I pulled out my phone and went to GoodReads to check out what people thought of it and when I typed in the title this is the picture that came up:

And I thought, Ohhhhhh, now I recognise it! 'Cos I had seen this cover on several blogs recently. So that decided me :-) (and the positive reviews...)

QUESTION: the one cover says Jennifer Donnelly's the author of A Gathering Light, the other cover calls it A Northern Light. Are these two covers referring to the same book?


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • 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 and author too so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!

Oh, I wonder what happens next! Does he wake up? Does the narrator leave? Great teaser! :)

I've read many good review on this book--I really want to read it!

I loved this book so much! And yes, A Gathering Light and A Northern Light are the same book!

I have some festive teasers this week!

Excellent teaser! Revolution sounds like a great read, I've seen it around a lot lately but haven't added it to my wishlist before I read your teaser.

Hey Rachel. I know what happens after that sentence becuase I've read Revolution already. Loved the book. LOVED IT!!! LOL.

My teaser: The child's voice never faltered, never ceased, but delivered the curious phrases in an eerie, chant-like progression.

Novel: THE MYSTERIOUS BENEDICT SOCIETY by: trenton Lee steward. It's a middle grade novel I'm enjoying very much. *giggling*
