Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!
- Grab the book you are currently reading
- Open to a page
- Share two sentences from somewhere on that page (I like to give a nice long tease :P)
DO NOT INCLUDE SPOILERS!!
This week it's... The Night Circus by: Erin Morgenstern
The wind increases, sending waves of dark ink crashing into the ship. Pages fall from the sails, swirling around them like leaves. The ship begins to tilt and Celia almost loses her footing, but Marco puts his arms around her waist to steady her while she laughs. "This is quite impressive, Mr. Illusionist," she says.
"Call me by my name," he says. He has never heard her speak his name and holding her in his arms he suddenly craves the sound. "Please," he adds when she hesitates. "Marco," she says, her voice low and soft. The sound of his name on her tongue is even more intoxicating than he had imagined, and he leans in to taste it.
I know this was a long teaser but this book is just amazing. I think the key to this book is to really take your time with it and become absorbed in the story. I hope you check it out because it's truly one of a kind!
