Teaser Tuesday (15)


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 (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!
After we started hanging out last summer, James found out I'd never been on a date before and insisted on being my first. Gram's cancer made it so we couldn't actually go out, but that didn't stop him.  He spent all week convincing Uncle Jack that he was trustworthy enough and on the big night, he dressed up, got into his car, drove the short distance between our houses to pick me up, then zipped back down the drive and into his garage where he'd planned our "date" of watching a movie and cooking dinner together.
From Cobbogoth by Hannah L. Clark

Isn't that sweet?  I'm not too far into the book yet, but I'm enjoying what I have read so far.

About Cobbogoth
To seventeen-year-old Norah Lukens, the Cobbogothians were just a myth. But after her archeologist uncle's brutal murder, and being asked to translate one of his old research journals for evidence, she begins a journey to discover the truth for herself.

Chasing the myth her uncle was obsessed with, Norah learns that his murder was a cover up for something far more sinister. If she hopes to save others from suffering the same fate he did--including the peculiarly magnetic James Riley--she must head to Iceland in order to find out the truth once and for all.

If she succeeds, she'll gain the one thing she's always longed for.

But if she fails, not even the gods can help her.
