Teaser Tuesdays #33

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


I already finished both these books, but since the book I'm reading now is not in English, I decided to share one sentence from both these books as teasers!

"Suddenly, from somewhere - no one's sense of direction was very clear by now - there came a cry, either of some inhuman voice or else a voice of one in such extremity of terror that he had almost lost his humanity."
 
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C. S. Lewis
 
 
"Huge waves were rising and crashing over the city; the night sky was rent with forks of white lightning from horizon to horizon; the rain fell in sheets, the city trembled; fires started near the great amphitheater and spread, quickly, through the city, defying the storm."
 
 Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

  1. Two great choices. I have read Voyage of the Dawn Treader and look forward to the movie. Neverwhere is a new one for me. I have two this week. My YA teaser is from Choker by Elizabeth Woods and my adult teaser is from Masques by Patricia Briggs. Happy reading!

  4. Here is my teaser from The Wolves of Andover by Kathleen Kent (Page 8):

    Martha saw it all clear in that moment: this was the instant her place in the family would be decided. If she lost her footing at the outset, she would forever be dealt with as no more than a servant.
