Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should be Reading and it asks us to...
  • 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 meant to open this book last night, to read a few pages before bed ..... and then wound up turning it right after Castle ended.     But I found a good teaser and plan to start this book today!

"The roadhouse, a big old honkytonk barn with a huge dirt parking lot that looked full to capacity, was called The Stagger Inn.  She stood at the edge of the glare cast by the parking lot lights, frowning."

Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King

Great teaser. I don't know if I'd be able to read King right before bed though! Thanks for sharing.

Sounds like an interesting book. Wonder why they named it Stagger Inn? Is it because people leave staggering ? You can find my teaser at The Bookish Snob

I love the way Stephen King writes. I don't sleep when I read horror, but he's got a way with words. lol

Here's my teaser: Bitten by Kelley Armstrong

This actually sounds pretty innocent for a Steven King book. I couldn't read it at bedtime though. My teaser is from Beatiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. Happy reading!

Here is my teaser from The Lodestone Book One: The Sea of Storms by Mark Whiteway (Prologue):

It was early in the afternoon, when Kal first saw the flying rock.

Well, perhaps "flying" was a slight exaggeration; a subtle embellishment that he might have used later when trying to impress his younger brother, or his friends after third-day prayers. It was a least enough to break Kal out of his reverie. Hymarr's reaction was the last thing he had expected.

He has been rehearsing in his mind for days beforehand how he would ask her to accompany him to the Spring Gratitude Service. That morning, as he lay in his bedchamber, before even Ali-Gan, the yellow sun, has risen over the western horizon, he determined that today was going to be the day.

I've never really been into Stephen King, but this sounds very intriguing! It really sets the stage - I can already see it all in my mind's eye! Great teaser!
