Teaser Tuesday!

It’s Tuesday again and time for another Teaser!  Tuesday Teasers is hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading and you know the rules by now:

  • – Open your current book to a random page.
  • – Select 2 teaser sentences from the page.
  • – Be sure to tell us about the book, so we can rush out and get it.
  • – No Spoilers Please!

My Teaser this week is from Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist.  I wasn’t going to read any more vampire novels for a while, but I saw the movie a while back and after reading some online reviews/discussion, I was compelled to read it.  It’s really fabulous and I hope to post the review later this week.  In the meantime, our vampire, Eli, is taking a stroll in the park:

“It hardly hurt at all anymore, just felt like a tingling, an electric current through her fingers and toes as they thinned out, took on a new shape.  The bones crackled in her hands as they stretched out, shot out through the melting skin of her fingertips and made long, curved claws.”

Eli is not someone you want to meet on a dark path in the park — some of these folks had better be careful!

What’s teasing YOU this week?

    Hmm! Sounds quite interesting- I hope it remains fabulous. I look forward to your review!

    My teaser is much less scary!

    It sounds pretty good though. Is it scary?
    Great teaser!
    Here’s mine.

    Andrea, it’s very scary! It’s also got great atmosphere – it takes place in Sweden in the dead of winter, so everything is very stark and frozen.

    Thanks, Alayne! The blog headers rotate, so you can always stop back and see new libraries.

    I have not heard of this one before, but it sounds very interesting! I’ll have to add it to my tbr list 🙂

    Excellent teaser this week! I am re-reading Watership Down by Richard Adams this week. You can find my teaser here.

    Vampires, huh? Quite a teaser…

  10. January 5, 2010 at 11:11 pm

    It hurt me to read your teaser. (I have too much imagination.) This is why I can’t read vampire books.

  11. January 6, 2010 at 12:59 am

    This sounds like my kind of reading.

    I’m saving it on my to-find list…I hope I can find it

    Great teaser! I loved this movie.

    I’m not familiar with this book, but I’m not familiar with a lot of the vampire themed books. The Sookie Stackhouse mysteries are the first ones I’ve tried and so far I am enjoying them very much. This is a great teaser!

    Definitely scary on long winter nights

    Creepy but interesting

    Good to hear it’s fabulous. The teaser’s certainly descriptive.

  17. January 7, 2010 at 3:35 pm

    That sounds painful! Ouch.

    Very tantalizing teaser!

  18. January 7, 2010 at 7:50 pm

    Creepy! That’s the second vampire teaser I’ve read this week.

    oh, cool, I’ve been looking at this movie for a long time (I work in a movie store) and I had no idea it was based on a book!

    This sounds so creepy!
