Teaser Tuesdays #144 – June 13th: The Book Of Whispers

teasertuesdays2017

TEASER TUESDAYS is a weekly book meme hosted at The Purple Booker. To participate, just open the book you are currently reading to a random page, and choose two ‘teaser’ sentences from somewhere on that page. (no spoilers!)

I’ve decided to take a little break from the mystery/thriller genre and read a few different titles first… One of them is The Book Of Whispers by Kimberley Starr, another pending ARC and one that I have been curious about for a while now. I’m not sure how I will react to the demons part, but both the historical setting and existence of the ancient book the MC is given sound intriguing. It does have quite a low Goodreads rating, but we’ll see how things go!

My teaser (6%):

“I lean forwards in excitement as the third and final scarf is unwrapped, then sink back on my heels in disappointment. We aren’t a poor family, but we don’t have treasure hidden beneath the floor of our stable either. What we have instead is a book.”

What are you reading right now?

  1. I think it’s great you’re giving this a go what with the lowish rating.. never know, you might like it! 🙂

    I’m reading a fantasy title (netgalley arc) at the moment… and … hmm… I hoped I was going to enjoy it more… but… it’s a solid 3 starrer for the moment…

    • I have to admit I didn’t see the rating until after I requested it; I was mostly under the spell of the cover and title. 😉 I’m not feeling it at all so far, but I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed things will improve later on. I’ve put it on hold to continue with Now I Rise first though, which is turning out to be too addicting to stop reading. 😉 I hope you read will improve later on as well!

    • I actually decided to finish another story I was really enjoying first before continuing with this story, but I’m definitely still curious how things would evolve in what is still to come in The Book Of Whispers.

    • So far I’m not convinced yet, but I’m hoping there will be more ‘mystery around the book’ and less ‘demon infestation’ later on in the story. 😉

    • There is one thing for sure, this story definitely surprised me! xD I liked the idea behind what the author wanted to do; I just didn’t enjoy actually reading it. Then again, demon stories are a hit or miss for me in general.
