Teaser Tuesdays


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!

Asylum
 Asylum by Madeleine Roux

"It was a house for those who could not take care of themselves, for those who heard voices, who had strange thoughts and did strange things. The house was meant to keep them in."

-pg. 8 (ARC)

Why do I have the feeling being "kept in" at this house is NOT going to be a good thing? *Shudder* Thanks for visiting!

Hi Valentina,

I am totally hooked by those teaser lines and the synopsis, which I'm afraid I took a peek at.

For me, this is an excellent premise for a debut novel and quite a brave attempt at distinction, by adding in photographs and making it seem less fiction-like.

I was sorry to see that the reviews to date have been quite pedestrian and midle-of-the-road, but I shall be adding it to my list anyway.

Thanks for featuring the book and I hope that you enjoy it,

Yvonne

I am definitely not a fan of that cover, now the writing on the other hand... That was a pretty great teaser, you total made me want to pick this one up. Are you enjoying it?

Just the title & your teaser tell me I must add to my TBR! http://carabosseslibrary.blogspot.com/2013/09/teaser-tuesdays_17.html

Your Teaser really grabbed me. It sounds like a book that I'd have to be in a certain mood to read. Not light and fluffy for sure!
My Teaser is from SMOKE, WINGS & STONE.

Wow, what a teaser. Combined with the cover, it gave me chills. How do you like it? I know a few people who would love a creepy book for a Christmas present (I'm shopping early =]).

Wonder if they get out or staying put causes the biggest problem! Enjoy.

This sounds really scary. The mental asylum/hospital books always freak me out.
