Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly event 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 itif they choose to read it as well.

For this week: (Still on last weeks book)

He could hear sounds without - a shuffling of feet, whispered voices, heavy breathing. Not Demons, he told himself quickly, but the chill within him would not subside.

From The Elfstones of Shannara by Terry Brooks

I like that. "Not Demons!" I can imagine saying it to myself (okay, maybe not demons, but you know). Great teaser!

Susan said...

Okay, I hope its okay that my Teaser is like 4 sentences long(I can delete it later if you want me to), but it's a great teaser, and this book is absolutely wonderful. I urge any and all book lovers to give this book a go! It’s seriously one of the Best books I've ever read!

I'm re-reading The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss.

"I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep.
You may have heard of me." Pg 58

Krista, that was just fine with me. You guys are slowly getting me to read this.

Krista said...

Anyone and everyone that I've talked to that has read The Name of the Wind have just come away speechless, including myself! Great read, and I do highly recommend it!

Melissa O. said...

Great teaser, very creepy :-) Thanks for stopping by my blog, too!

Well, it certainly sounds like all the Demons I've ever met! Great teaser.

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

Hey Krista, out of the book so far I think you have used the best line. (only 58 pages in) So I will pick another. I tried to pick a line that I have read that will make you curious and pick up the book.

The Name of the Wind
By Patrick Rothfuss

The Waystone was his, just as the third silence was his. This was appropriate, as it was the greatest silence of the three, wrapping the others inside itself.

Yikes! I got chills reading this ... must need more coffee this morning to be brave enough to ward off those "not demons!"
