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 is from “Troll’s Eye View: A Book of Villianous Tales” edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling.
Here it is: “The braid twisted and writhed like a snake and even began to rear up, and the shadow on Rapunzel’s chest reached out to it, but Jenny’s claws held it tight and the Witch’s scissors flashed, snipping the braid into shorter and shorter lengths. Finally, the hair moved no longer, and Jenny tore the shadow from the girl and flung it on the ground, where is withered in the sun.” Pg. 44
