Teaser Tuesday: The Hum and The Shiver

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!


Teaser:
I can’t deal with the haint yet, Bronwyn thought fearfully. She felt her immobility more than ever, and winced with each crushing heartbeat; for an instant she thought she might really be having a coronary, her body too weak to survive this level of terror.
-- Page 90, The Hum and The Shiver by Alex Bledsoe

Oh, fantastic teaser! I love popping by other blogs on Tuesdays for this meme. I find some good books that I've never heard of.

Intriguing! I was browsing at the library last night and found myself rejecting many a book that didn't meet Brian's criteria of a "grabber" first sentence. Ya'll have raised my standards in so many areas. ;)

A hook line is important but many a good book doesn't have one, so don't let that be your only criteria.

I think of a great book I read by Sanderson, Mistborn starts with the sentance "Ash fell." that's it. And before you ask Ash is not a person. It is ash, the volcanic variety. Very exciting.
