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!
I am so enthralled with Seraphina that I just cannot resist doing my teasers from that book, even though I’ve already finished reading it. These are two of my absolute favorite passages.
From Seraphina, by Rachel Hartman
They began to sing.
The cathedral, reverberating with masculine song, appeared to expand before my eyes. The sun gleamed through the high windows; gold and crimson bloomed upon the marble floor. The music buoyed my small form, filled and surrounded me, made me larger than myself. It was the answer to a question I had never asked, the way to fill the dread emptiness into which I had been born.
I became the very air; I was full of stars. I was the soaring spaces between the spires of the cathedral, the solemn breath of chimneys, a whispered prayer upon the winter wind. I was silence, and I was music, one clear transcendent chord rising toward Heaven.
Are these not some of the most beautiful words you’ve ever read? How can you not want to read Seraphina right now?
A good song can definitely do that.
Mine is from The Casual Vacancy
Can’t it? I just love the musical imagery in that book. :)
I’ve been thinking of reading this book, and well I do love a book that knows how to do visual well haha. Sounds beautiful!
