Teaser Tuesday



It's Tuesday and that means a it's time for the teaser meme - hosted by Mizb17 at Should Be Reading

Guidelines:

1. Grab your current read

2. Let the book fall open to a random page

3. Share with us two “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.

4. You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

5. Do not share any spoilers!




This week's teaser is from a book that I'm reading for Barnes & Noble's First Look Book Club - Of Bees and Mist by Erick Setiawan:


"As the drizzle thickened into rain, they hustled past moldering huts and ramshackle tenements, past temples of abandoned gods and hotels tenanted by transient midnight souls. Eyes without bodies traked them from the depths of shadows, howling, laughing at every turn of the wind."
p.267



Review to come later this week!

I have given away a lot of books, but I have never signed up to win one. George Pelecanos is an outstanding writer. This is a book I can devour in one read! Put me on your list of contestants . . & I'll pray and pray and pray.
