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.

Good teaser. The only one I've read by her was Inkheart.

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.

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.

Audrey said...

My son likes her books :) I do remember him reading this one.

I've read the first book in the Inkworld trilogy, but have not read this one. Sounds really interesting; will add to the TBR pile.
