Teaser Tuesday! (1)

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 away too much! 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 teaser!


Ultraviolet by R.J. Anderson

I tipped my head to one side and there they were: three stars, bright as a promise. But instead of giving off the crystal wind-chime noise that had soothed me since childhood, they sang an eerie, piercing harmony unlike anything I'd heard before. And their colors were strange, too. The first star burned blue neon, the second electric green, and the third... p. 38

A little more than two sentences, but it's my first time! I'm almost finished Ultraviolet and I'm loving it! Hope you enjoyed this teaser!

  1. Welcome. Sometimes it is inevitable as it wouldn't make sense otherwise, to use only two sentences.

    It's rather eerie to think of stars like this. Good choice.

  6. @Shirley Exactly! Just two sentences wouldn't have provided the full impact of that particular scene!

    It is eerie, isn't it? Haven't quite looked at stars the same since I read it!

  8. @bex I was thinking the same thing - hasn't been much hype about Ultraviolet, not that I've seen at least. I really enjoyed it!

    Thanks for following!
