Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Miz B of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can participate, just do the following:
- Grab your current read and open to a random page
- Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page.
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure what you share doesn't give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title and the author so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!
Trigger Warning: Short Fiction and Disturbances by Neil Gaiman is the source for this week's teasers. Two teasers for the price of one! I just couldn't choose between them. They come from the first and second page of the introduction.
"The monsters in our cupboards and our minds are always there in the darkness, like mold beneath the floorboards and behind wallpaper, and there is so much darkness, an inexhaustible supply of darkness. The universe is amply supplied with night."
"What we read as adults should be read, I think, with no warnings or alerts beyond, perhaps: enter at your own risk. We need to find out what fiction is, what it means to us, an experience that is going to be unlike anyone else's experience of the story."
From Goodreads: In this new anthology, Neil Gaiman pierces the veil of reality to reveal the enigmatic, shadowy world that lies beneath. Trigger Warning includes previously published pieces of short fiction--stories, verse, and a very special Doctor Who story that was written for the fiftieth anniversary of the beloved series in 2013--as well "Black Dog," a new tale that revisits the world of American Gods, exclusive to this collection.
So far I am enjoying the book, including the introduction. What book are you reading this week? What are your teasers? Please share them with us in the comments. Happy Reading!
