Tuesday Teaser/The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan

Tuesday, May 11, 2010
Welcome to Tuesday Teaser.

Miz B at Should Be Reading sponsors Teaser Tuesdays asking that you to: 
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  •  Share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
This week's teaser comes from The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan.


"The Egyptian word shesh means scribe or writer, but it can also mean magician. This is because magic, at its most basic, turns words into reality You will create a scroll. Using your own magic, you will send power into the the words on paper. When spoken aloud the words will unleash the magic.

This looks great! Amazing teaser! I read the most amazing book this week. I had used it for my Teaser Tuesday and loved it so much I decided to post my review today. Feel free to head over to my blog and check it out at http://EmmaMichaels.Blogspot.com and post your teaser in my comments!

This feels a little bit true. Maybe words don't create reality, but they create magic for the reader. Great tease! I can't wait to read this one!

Ahhh, at first I didn't notice the author of this book. I've read to number three in the Percy Jackson series, and find them really cute and informative. I'd definitely be interested in this. It's such a unique thing that Riordan has done.
