Teaser Tuesday (20)

Posted on 09/12/2011 in Book Review / 16 Comments

 

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

   

Once, in my father’s bookshop, I heard a regular customer say that few things leave a deeper mark on a reader than the first book that finds its way into his heart. Those first images, the echo of words we think we have left behind, accompany us throughout our lives and sculpt a palace in our memory which, sooner or later – no matter how many books we read, how many worlds we discover, or how much we learn or forget – we will return. p. 5, Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón

   

What book has stolen your heart?  Was it the first one you ever read, or one you stumbled across by chance?

  1. Very nicely chosen. I was probably influenced by nature books I read as a kid, but some fiction that has always stayed with me are the Henry Huggins/Beezus Quimby books by Beverly Clear. Set in the forties and fifties, their small-town Americana setting was anachronistic by the time I read them…but I’ve always been fond of that neighborly quaintness.

  2. I love the teaser! My aunt borrowed me this a while ago (in Swedish though), since she loved it so much and thought I should give it a go. Still haven’t, but I’m thinking I probably should. 🙂 I think Lotta på Bråkmakargatan by Astrid Lindgren is a book that stole my heart! It’s one of the first books I sat down with by myself and tried to read and also the translation was the first one I tried when first giving English books a try. Very young, but I was completely lost in Lindgren’s stories back then! Lotta was the only one I had on book though, the rest I listened to every night. I’ll always remember leaving my friends playing, to hide away with the book. I think I even read it more than once. Stop by and get teased by Anna Dressed in Blood!
