First Chapter, First Paragraph, Tuesday Intros is hosted by Bibliophile by the Seawhere bloggers share the first paragraph or two of the book they are currently reading/thinking about reading soon.Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. 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!
"I think it was only at the very end of the Lavender Lodge job, when we were fighting for our lives in that unholy guest-house that I glimpsed Lockwood & Co. working together perfectly for the first time. It was just the briefest flash, but every detail remains etched into my memory: those moments of sweet precision when we truly acted as a team."
"My skin crawled. I couldn't take my eyes off the smiling apparition in the chair."
I love the Lockwood books and these quotes represent the book perfectly. It has a lot of energetic fight scenes but is also kind of funny in some places. I really like this intro because I love how it jumps straight into the action which I really like.
"The Metropolitan Theater simmered with the heat of more than a thousand bodies packed together in red velvet chairs. My nose itched from the lingering scent of cigarette smoke wafting off the gentleman's coats - a burning odor that added to the sensation that we were all seated inside a beautiful oven, waiting to be broiled. Even the cloud of warring perfumes hanging over the audience smelled overcooked, like toast gone crisp and black."
"Come along. Let's get out of here and go toast to youth and vampires and rebellion."
I love how great Cat Winters is at setting a scene, I almost feel hot after reading that opening! It also sounds so beautiful yet distasteful which is a great combination. And that teaser is just a brilliant quote I think.
