Teaser Tuesday: City of Bones ~ Cassandra Clare

October 26, 2009


  • 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 don’t usually quote the first line but I thought this was too good to pass up.

“You’ve got to be kidding me,” the bouncer said, folding his arms across his massive chest. He stared down at the boy in the red zip-up jacket and shook his head. “You can’t bring that thing in here.” City of Bones by Cassandra Clare p. 1

    Great teaser, and an interesting first line. The title alone though, was enough to make me want to take a peek inside this one. My teaser is up here.
