Teaser Tuesdays #9

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!

My Teasers:

Doomsday Book by Connie WillisThey’ve all died, she thought, and couldn’t make herself believe it. The’ve all been dead over seven hundred years. – pg. 312,  Doomsday Book by Connie Willis

Not a bad read, but definitely a downer. I’m pretty sure I’ll end up crying at some point soon.  

Any suggestions for cheerful books with time travel in them would be greatly appreciated!

I'm a librarian, reader, and writer whose main goal in life is to be able to swim in books the way Scrooge McDuck swims in money. Although my reading choices will always be wildly eclectic and I never plan on leaving any genre unexplored, my favorite reads tend to be Fantasy, Young Adult, Science Fiction, Gay Romance, or Historical Fiction.

  1. What comes to mind with that teaser? Dead for that long… Mummies. I feel like the Mad Scientist is way off the mark on that one. How incredibly interesting!

    Stop by my teaser Located at For The Love of Reading, http://ikissbooks.blogspot.com/

    Mad Scientist

  2. A time traveler? This is a sad teaser. I’m not sure it’s a book for me. Thanks for visiting my teaser.

    You will hit me when I admit this, but Doomsday Book has been sitting on my shelves for YEARS and has not been read *blush* For awhile I considered getting advanced degrees in Medieval Studies and one of my profs suggested this book, so I was excited to find it in a used bookstore! Sadly, it has been over looked 😦 Thanks for the TT and bringing it back to my attention!!
