Teaser Tuesday #12

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

-Grab your current read
-Open to a random page
-Share two teaser sentences from that page!

I took a pretty long (a week) break from books. I am halfway done with Mother Night by Kurt Vonnegut, but then I decided to read something else for now. So my teaser this week is from a fantasy novel called House of Many Ways, a sequel to Diana Wynne Jones‘s Howl’s Moving Castle. It’s a magical book!

“The fat book she had in her hand was called The Book of Void and Nothingness. Not surprisingly, when she opened it, the pages were blank. But she could feel under her fingers each empty page sort of purring and writhing with hidden magics.”

  3. Great teaser. I love fantasy books and this one sounds very magical and just my cup of tea 😀 Thanks for stopping by my blog and checking out my teaser of White Cat! New Follower 😀

    PS – absolutely love the "life is like a box of Bertie Bott's every flavour beans" saying in your "about me" section. Brilliant! What a legend!
