Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly book meme originally featured at Should Be Reading. 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!)
When my boyfriend found out that Mortal Engines was being released in a few weeks, he gave me strict instructions to read the book (which he happened to have in his possession) before we went to see it on opening night of course! So I had about 3 days to whizz through it all before our reserved time at the cinema. Here’s a little teaser for you before I write out a full review next week!
“‘Tom felt a big, gentle hand on his shoulder and then – he was never quite sure how it happened – a twist, a shove, and he was pitching over the handrail and falling, just as Hester Shaw had fallen, flailing wildly for a hold on the smooth metal at the brim of the waste chute. He pushed me! he thought, and it was more amazement that he felt than fear as the black throat swallowed him down into the dark. ” (28)
