teaser tuesday (32)

Tuesday, March 23, 2010 |
It's Teaser Tuesday, a bookish blog meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Here's how it works:

Grab your current read and let it fall open to a random page. Post two (or more) sentences from that page, along with the title and author. Don’t give anything vital away!

“The drumming sound came again. Leaf gasped and jumped back as several tentacles ripped the draft excluder off the bottom of the door and slithered inside. She picked up an umbrella and struck at them, but the tentacles gripped the umbrella and cut it into pieces. More and more tentacles came through under the door. Then they started sawing backwards and forwards.”

-p. 46 of Garth Nix’s Grim Tuesday

I just shared this series with my students! I wish more would pick it up because I think they'd really love it. I need to read some more, so I can talk about them better. Hope you're enjoying it.
