Teaser Tuesdays


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Here is how it works.
Grab the book you are currently reading (anything at all)
Open the book to any random page.
Share 2 "teaser" sentences from anywhere on the page.
Please Make Sure They Are Not Spoilers!
(Don't Give Too Much Away) Just enough to pique our interest.
List the book and author so other participants can get their hand on it if they choose to read it as well.

For This Week:

For a second, I just sat there, nearly convulsing with fear, my screams little more than rasps. Then that hand wrapped around my leg, cold bone biting in, scraps of ragged cloth brushing my bare skin.

From: The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong

EEWWWWW! That's so creepy and ... wow. Good teaser. It totally succeeded in grossing me out. Awesome!

Susan B. Evans said...

It's too early for you to be creeping me out like this :) I'm on a wait-list for this one at my library. Great teaser this week! My teaser accompanies a giveaway on my blog this week.

Lisa said...

That is one seriously creepy teaser! Good choice!

Hello, Ryan! I never knew that you were into this genre. Hmmm.... makes me want to try it out.

Zia said...

Awesome teaser. I'm wondering who/what that hand belongs to.

Ryan G said...

Thanks everyone for stopping by I love creepy teasers as it seems most of mine lately have been along those lines.

Celia, the creepier the better.

Susan, I am now entered into your give away and I better win ;-)

Lisa, Thanks for stopping by, your teaser is forcing me to go pick up the book.

Peter, YA is something I'm just getting into. Some of it's really good, some of it's not (Twilight)

Zia, thank for comment. I read your teaser and it is probably my favorite to date.

Krista, Go to the store today and pick it up :-)

Carol, Thank you so much for stopping by. If I told you I would have to let the who/what have you next :-)

Ryan G said...

Alita, thank's so much for stopping by. I've been on a creepy kick lately and with the Fall coming I'm not sure it will stop anytime soon.

Joy, you won't be dissapointed if you pick it up.

Dawn, If you do have lots of lights on in the house.

Staci, When you get around to it let me know what you though.

Jennifer, I'm going to have Elspeth and you connected in my head for the rest of my life now. Thanks for stopping by.

Booktumbling, if you can't find it I will let you borrow one of mine. I have lots of them.

Kristen said...

Loved this book! I'm dying to read The Awakening.

Ryan G said...

Kristen, glad to hear it. I've always been a big fan of Kelley Armstrong and this is the first time I felt like reading her YA stuff.

Melissa said...

Uh, uh, what happened?!? I want to know more. This can be such a cruel thing at times, this teaser thing. I get just enought to want more and then you stop.

I will have to add this to the list. Can't wait for your review on this!!

If you would like to stop by I just got my teaser up.
