Teaser Tuesdays - January 19 - Hook & Jill

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, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teaser:

Like a row of knives, each committed to slaughter, [the crocodile's teeth] triggered an uncomfortable memory of Peter's dagger, and his hands wiping a man's blood from it this afternoon.  The warmth receded, and Wendy felt much older than the girl she had been the night she arrived here.
