Teaser Tuesdays


MizB of Should Be Reading hosts Teaser Tuesdays. Anyone can play along. Just do the following:

*Grab your current read.
*Open to a random page.
*Share two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page.
*BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! You don't want to spoil the book for others.
*Share the title and author too, so other TT particpants can add it to their TBR lists if they like your teaser!

Here's mine from Lair of the White Worm by Bram Stoker: The fear and restraint which brooded amongst the denizens of the air began to affect all life. Not only did the birds cease song or chirp, but the lowing of the cattle ceased in the fields and the varied sound of life died away. In place of these things was only a soundless gloom, more dreadful, more disheartening, more soul-killing than any concourse of sounds, no matter how full of fear and dread.

Very good teaser. I will check it out. Looking at all those teasers only makes my tbr pile longer! So many books, so less time to read, so less space to keep!

Here is my Teaser Tuesday: Out At Night by Susan Arnout Smith post!

Bev, that does sound like a frightening place to be. No sign of the white worm yet? (I read your Where are You.) Good tease!

Thanks for stopping by My Bookshelf.

@Shirley: It's just now (with about 20 pages to go) getting a bit scary and the White Worm has put in an appearance (brief).

Frightening teaser. Good Luck to your son as he prepares to reach his goal. Sounds like Mom might be a bit more nervous, sign of a loving, caring, devoted and proud parent!!!
