Teaser Tuesday: Hollow City by Ransom Riggs
December 22, 2015
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm. 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. (I tend to go over this limit a LOT!)
•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!
This week I'm reading Hollow City by Ransom Riggs, subtitled The Second Novel of Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children. I read the first book so long ago, I don't really remember the story very well, but that's not taking away from my enjoyment of this second book at all. Here are my teasers from page 194 on my nook:
So it had come to this: everything depended on a pigeon. Whether we would end the night in the womblike safety of an ymbryne's care or half chewed in the churning black of a hollow's guts; whether Miss Peregrine would be saved or we'd wander lost through this hellscape until her clock ran out; whether I would live to see my home or my parents again - it all depended on one scrawny, peculiar pigeon.
