Teaser Tuesday


I haven't done a Teaser Tuesday post for a couple of weeks. No idea why!

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should be Reading:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!

I have two teasers to share with you this week, one from each of the books I am currently reading!

The first teaser is from It by Stephen King. This is my first by King, who writes in a genre that it is fair to say is waaay outside my comfort zone, but it is good to challenge yourself...right?

We went into Ben's Morlock holes, into the sewers, but after awhile they weren't sewers anymore. They were...were...what?




The second teaser is from Under a Blood Red Sky by Kate Furnivall. I loved her first book, The Russian Concubine, when I read it last year. Unfortunately it is one of the books that I have the review started and sitting in draft for me to finish one day (not really going to happen!).

Sofia beckoned to Anna and led the way to the ditch on the edge of the forest, dug out as a latrine for the hundreds of workers. Behind it lay a boulder that was still half buried in the snow.
Give how much I have already read of the book, I have to say that that teaser has teased me, even if it isn't a very exciting tease for anyone else! LOL!

  1. I don't like horror stories, either, but Stephen King is a very interesting writer. I thought "It" was kind of goofy. I did like "The Stand," "The Shining," and "Misery" (although Misery gets very gruesome).

  2. It's been years since I've read IT. I remember liking the movie more though.

  3. Marg I just started reading "It" also. Wow you picked one of his longest books to start with. I hear it is one of his creepiest books.

  4. I LOVE Stephen King and I'm glad to hear that you are reading him! He really is a very good writer and I believe does not get enough credit for his actual writing as he does for his horror!!! Though "It" is good, it is not one of the best! "The Stand" is my personal favorite -- another long one, but completely worth it!! Enjoy!!
