Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. You know the rules: grab your current read, open to a random page and share a two sentence teaser with us (no spoilers!). Be sure to tell us about the book, so we can add it to our TBR list!

This week, my teaser is from NOS4A2 by Joe Hill. It’s a book about a serial killer, a girl with a magic bicycle, and the world of imagination that we keep in our heads. At least, most of the time it stays in our heads.

“Vic smelled the vast vault filled with books before she saw it, because her eyes required time to adjust to the cavernous dark. She breathed deeply of the scent of decaying fiction, disintegrating history, and forgotten verse, and she observed for the first time that a room full of books smelled like dessert: a sweet snack made of figs, vanilla, glue, and cleverness.”

What a terrific description! It makes me want to run off to my favorite used book store, see if it smells the same way.

What’s teasing you this week?

    Just the mention of Joe Hill being the author tempted me. 🙂 The quote is especially appetizing though!
