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!
This week's teaser is from Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children #1) by Ransom Riggs:
Standing in a tomb-dark hallway just inside the door, I stared frozenly at what looked for all the world like skins hanging from hooks. After a queasy moment in which I imagined some twisted cannibal leaping from the shadows with knife in hand, I realized they were only coats rotted to rags and green with age. (p. 84)
So far this book has been riveting! With scene descriptions painted in such vivid detail as above, I have no trouble at all putting myself in the character's shoes and seeing what they see or feeling what they feel. The fact that photographs are peppered throughout just add to the atmosphere the author is creating. Now I just wish I'd read this book much sooner!
Have a teaser you'd like to share?
Leave me a link below and enjoy your Tuesday!
