Like the Super Beaver Moon reaching perigee, the Wheel of Time has turned ’round to Teaser Tuesday.
Just in case you don’t know, Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Books and a Beat. Anyone can play along! All you have to do is grab the book you’re currently reading, open to a random page and share a few sentences from that page. But make sure you don’t share any spoilers!*

We are nearing the end of the year, and I’ve the rest of my planned yearly reading, well, planned to reach 100 books sometime after Christmas but before the New Year. Right now, I’m at 93/100 books – giving me 7 to go, or roughly one per week for the rest of the year (give or take).
This week, in addition to Hard Rivers, I’m continuing on my Journey ‘Round the Disc with I Shall Wear Midnight, the 38th Discworld novel and the 4th in the Tiffany Aching series.
The Goodreads’ Blurb
It starts with whispers.
Then someone picks up a stone.
Finally, the fires begin.
When people turn on witches, the innocents suffer. . .
Tiffany Aching has spent years studying with senior witches, and now she is on her own. As the witch of the Chalk, she performs the bits of witchcraft that aren’t sparkly, aren’t fun, don’t involve any kind of wand, and that people seldom ever hear about: She does the unglamorous work of caring for the needy.
But someone or something is igniting fear, inculcating dark thoughts and angry murmurs against witches. Aided by her tiny blue allies, the Wee Free Men, Tiffany must find the source of this unrest and defeat the evil at its root before it takes her life. Because if Tiffany falls, the whole Chalk falls with her.
Chilling drama combines with laugh-out-loud humor and searing insight as beloved and bestselling author Terry Pratchett tells the high-stakes story of a young witch who stands in the gap between good and evil.
