Teaser Tuesday

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
  • 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!

"Ghouls move fast. They swarmed along the path through the desert more swiftly than a vulture flies and Bod was carried along by them, held high overhead by a pair of strong ghoul arms, tossed from one to another, feeling sick, feeling dread and dismay, feeling stupid."

(The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, page 82.)

Swarming ghouls! Not exactly something I'd choose for bedtime reading, but in the daylight it might be OK. Great teasers!
