Teaser Tuesday - 17 May

Teaser Tuesday

The rules are:
  • 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 and author 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!
'This is the border of Elfland,' said the Queen. 'This is a shadowland where the shadowless travel.' The rocks, and the grass were grey, and a little river that ran beside the track was grey, and the thickets they passed were grey, rat-grey, shadow-grey, and there was the sound of rushing and roaring, like breakers on the beach.
Another teaser, like last week, from A S Byatt's The Children's Book

I have this one on my to-buy list! Wow .. so many good books, so little time to read them all (and feed kids, and clean the house, and do all of the other things that need to be done) Thanks for sharing your teaser!
