Teaser Tuesday (Feb 16!)

 Teaser Tuesdays are hosted by the incomparable MizB over at Should Be Reading. For those of you playing along at home, the rules are:

  • 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!

Since I’m still reading my Audubon book, I’m doing something a bit different, but hopefully still kosher, for my Teaser Tuesday this week. It’s a teaser from a book that I’d like to read: Horns, by Joe Hill.

The teaser, via Amazon:

Ignatius Perrish spent the night drunk and doing terrible things. He woke up the next morning with a thunderous hangover, a raging headache . . . and a pair of horns growing from his temples.

Mystery! Angst! Weirdness! Sounds good, eh? And best of all, Horns comes out today! Woot! I myself love a good dark, twisted tale of love and revenge, and it sounds like Horns delivers. If anyone reads and reviews it, let me know–I’d love to know what other book bloggers think.

      I can think of a few, but I’m sure Hill’s answers are even more creative/depraved, haha. Heading over to check out your teaser!

      Ahh, I know! I probably won’t be getting it for a while, since I just bought four books, but I look forward to reading others’ reviews about it! ;)

    Ignatius is always a good name, and I really like how simple and straightforward the opening is- I love it when fantasy is dealt with matter-of-factly. Looks very nice!

    Revenge uh? Some angry woman? This sounds good. Enjoy!

    I love that teaser! It sounds like a very interesting book.

    Have you read either of his other books? I think there are two. I read his short story collection, 20th Century Ghosts, and really enjoyed it. I haven’t read Heart-Shaped Box or Horns, but they are definitely on my list. This is a great teaser!
