teaser tuesday (78)

Tuesday, April 10, 2012 |

It's Teaser Tuesday, a bookish blog meme hosted every week by MizB of Should Be Reading. Here's how it works:


Grab your current read and let it fall open to a random page (or if you're reading on an electronic device, pick a random number and scroll to that section). Post two or more sentences from that page, along with the book title and author. Share your find with others in the comments at Should Be Reading, and don't give anything vital away!


“Everything happens at night.


The world changes, the shadows grow, there’s secrecy and privacy in dark places. First kiss, at night, by the monkey bars and the old swings that the children and their parents have vacated; second, longer kiss, by the bike stands, swirl of dust around feet in the dry summer air.”


p. 1 of Michelle Sagara’s Silence

That's a great teaser--and that's from page one? I'll have to check this book out. My teaser is HERE!

If the rest of the book is as good as page one, then this must be one hell of a nice read. (: And the cover is amazing, title font reminds me of graveyard gates or something similar.
