The idea is to grab what you are currently reading and copy a couple of sentences chosen at random. Be sure to include the title and author of the “read.” No spoilers, please. Come on, friends, let’s have a little participation here! Leave a comment saying you are posting it on your blog at… or if you don’t have a blog type the teaser, title and author in the comments box.
Today’s Tuesday Teaser from Cornelia Funke’s Inkheart:
“Maggie” (the twelve year old protagonist whose father is a bookbinder and collector, who was addressed the night before by the name, Silverthroat, by a mysterious man, who pounded on their door at midnight in the pouring rain and warned her father of danger to them both) “woke up because it was so quiet. The regular sound of the [van’s] engine that had lulled her to sleep had stopped. The driver’s seat beside her was empty. It took Maggie a little while to remember why she wasn’t in bed at home.”…”The van was parked outside an iron gate made of spearheads just waiting to impale anyone who tried to clamber over it.”
HOORAY FOR TUESDAYS!
