Teaser Tuesdays: Story Thieves by James Riley (March 10)


Okay, so for those of you who are new to this meme, here's how it works:

Teaser Tuesdays 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, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My current read is Story Thieves by James Riley.


Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Life is boring when you live in the real world, instead of starring in your own book series. Owen knows that better than anyone, what with the real world’s homework and chores.
But everything changes the day Owen sees the impossible happen—his classmate Bethany climb out of a book in the library. It turns out Bethany’s half-fictional and has been searching every book she can find for her missing father, a fictional character.
Bethany can’t let anyone else learn her secret, so Owen makes her a deal: All she has to do is take him into a book in Owen’s favorite Kiel Gnomenfoot series, and he’ll never say a word. Besides, visiting the book might help Bethany find her father…
…Or it might just destroy the Kiel Gnomenfoot series, reveal Bethany’s secret to the entire world, and force Owen to live out Kiel Gnomenfoot’s final (very final) adventure.
(400 pages)

Here´s my quote, from page 10:
As Bethany slowly pulled herself out of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by her chocolate-covered hands, she sighed. Why had she stayed so long? She was beyond late now. It’d just been incredibly relaxing to sit hidden behind the chocolate river, watching the Oompa-Loompas work and not being yelled at by Mr. Barberry or her mom.
Does this interest you? Check back on Friday for my review!

    1. Thanks for commenting, Heidi! I haven't heard of the Jasper Fjorde Thursday Next books. Are they good?
