Teaser Tuesdays For May 25

Dear Me,

I'm picking out a new book to read today. I just finished reading The Killing Art by Jonathan Santlofer.


************


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:



  • 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!

From my shelves in the bedroom, I picked a new book to read, authored by Cornelia Funke. She's a German author of children's fiction and known for her Inkworld trilogy.



Here's my chosen teasers:
They were all very tired, but none of them fell asleep quickly. And even when they did, the bad dreams were already lurking underneath their pillows.

  9. I LOVED this book. One of the things I thought was really cute about it was the author's comment that her mom read the manuscript and said, "This is like a REAL book!" Oh, moms.

  10. My p/t job is in a bookstore, and I've seen that book around, never quite pulled the trigger on it. Might have to do that now, though.
