Rules for participation:
- 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!
This week my teaser is from The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I finished it yesterday, but it's quite good and I'm not reading anything else I haven't already given you a teaser from.
(I love the way it looks like a paper cut-out; though it would have fit the story better if there had been no red at all and just black and white. Not that I'm really complaining.)
Isobel sits in a rarely occupied chair in the corner of Marco's flat, a rainbow of silk ribbon twisted around her fingers as she attempts in vain to form it into a single elaborate braid.-p. 40
"This seems so silly," she remarks, frowning at the tangle of ribbon.
"It's a simple charm," Marco says from his desk where he sits surrounded by open books. "A ribbon for each element, bound with knots and intent. It's like your cards, only influencing the subject instead of simply divining its meaning. But it won't work if you don't believe it will, you know that."
Have a teaser, or thoughts on the book you're reading?
