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 a few “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!
Seems like I am on a Neil Gaiman kick, since I've featured Good Omens, Stardust, and now The Graveyard Book. I've had this book on my wish list for ages so I'm ecstatic about finally getting a chance to tear into it's pages. Nobody Owens - Bod to his friends - was raised by the residents of the non-living graveyard, a place he stumbled into as a tragically orphaned toddler, and offer him sanctuary from the dangers that follow him.
Here's the Teaser:
"The night-gaunt crouched beside him, its leathery wings folded on its back. Bod had grown up in a graveyard and was used to images of winged people, but the angels on the headstones looked nothing like this."
-pg. 93, The Graveyard Book, by Neil Gaiman
