Teaser Tuesday – 1/22/19

tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Purple Booker. Here are the rules if you want to play along:

• 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!

The shutters swinging in the storm winds were the only sign of her entry. No one had noticed her scaling the garden wall of the darkened manor house, and with the thunder and the gusting wind off the nearby sea, no one heard her as she shimmied up the drainpipe, swung onto the windowsill, and slithered into the second-floor hallway.

Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

This is literally the first sentences of the book. I am starting it today and really looking forward to seeing how this story plays out.

No Top Ten Tuesday this week. The topic was “Books I Meant to Read In 2018 but Didn’t Get To” and my answer would be SO MANY!! 2018 was not a great reading year for me, and I have a stack of books to get through, so hopefully 2019 will be better.

Leave your teasers in comments!

  1. Great excerpt! Thanks for sharing…and here’s mine: “UNTOUCHABLE”

  2. Nice opening. You wonder why she has to sneak in. My Teaser is from Spoonbenders by Daryl Gregory.

  3. Book one got *really* interesting about halfway in. I couldn’t put book 2 down.

    Now I’m on book four and it’s still interesting
