Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly event hosted by Should Be Reading. The rules are simple:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page (as well as the book’s title and author)
- Be careful not to include spoilers
I’ve finally, finally picked up Carlos Ruiz Zafón’s The Shadow of the Wind! I’m a little over a quarter of the way in, and I’m getting seriously spooked.
I looked again at the portrait of that couple and knew for sure that the young man was Julián Carax, smiling at me from the past, unable to see the flames that were closing in on him.
I think at this point I’ve been introduced to the bulk of the main characters, and a vague idea of a plot is forming, but I gotta admit that I’m still mostly lost. I’m certainly enjoying the journey so far, though!
What am I in for here? Clue me in in the comments!
