Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. To play along just follow the rules below!
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page (I usually do a bit more than two)
- 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!
I’ve been finally catching up on the fifth book in The Mortal Instruments series, City of Lost Souls, by Cassandra Clare. I’ll most likely be finishing it up this week, next at the latest.
【Explosions of color and light burst like cherry bombs throughout the room, nothing like the artificial light upstairs – these were beautiful, sparkling like fireworks, and every time one burst, it rained down a glittering shimmer onto the dancing crowd below. Huge marble fountains sprayed sparkling water; black rose petals drifted onto the surface. And far above everything, dangling down above the packed floor of dancers on a long golden cord, was a massive chandelier made of bones.】
