Teaser Tuesdays: The Graveyard Book

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

Here is my teaser:

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman.

"It's like the people who believe they'll be happy if they go and live somewhere else, but who learn it doesn't work that way. Wherever you go, you take yourself with you."

I have to move this book up up up on my list!

Christine Rains said...

Awesome teaser! I adore Neil Gaiman. :)

Deana said...

Very cool idea! I like your teasers...very teasing:)

Joshua said...

I love Neil Gaiman. Can't wait to read this one.

Rachel Morgan said...

What a great line! "Wherever you go, you take yourself with you." It's kind of scary actually. There's no escape from oneself!

Lady Gwen said...

Laurel and Vicki - it is very true!

David, Christine and Joshua, I just discovered Gaiman and I loved this book.

Fairytale Nerd - you should move this up on your list, and it fits the season, too!

Rachel, this scene was about suicide, and it really struck me.

Deana, great teaser, huh?

Joshua said...

Oh, you should read his AMERICAN GODS. Amazing book.

Lady Gwen said...

Joshua, I just added it to my TBR list on GoodReads. Thanks!

Sonia Lal said...

Truer words! Happiness lies in yourself.

Lady Gwen said...

Sonia, yes. Change or a move can be good, but if you're trying to escape yourself - it just doesn't work.

Crystal Collier said...

Hee hee. I don't take myself with me into books. That's the only place I can go without me. Or maybe I do take me. Hm. Deep thoughts you never wanted to ponder...

I loved The Graveyard Book. That was a great random line.

Crystal, when I'm reading, I'm practically a character in the book, lol!

Joyce, confession time. I deliberately chose that line because I liked it so much!
