Teaser Tuesday: The Crossing Places by Elly Griffiths

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!


My teaser this week comes from:

Shop Indie Bookstores

“Now the wind sounds like children’s voices calling.  How sad they sound, like the cries of sailors lost at sea, like the will o’the wisps searching the world for comfort and warmth.” (pg. 277)

What’s your teaser this week?
