Teaser Tuesday (8): Another Little Piece by Kate Karyus Quinn + Beat the Heat Read-a-thon Day 1

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! 



Another Little Piece 
The spine-tingling horror of Stephen King meets an eerie mystery worthy of Sara Shepard's Pretty Little Liars series in Kate Karyus Quinn's haunting debut.

On a cool autumn night, Annaliese Rose Gordon stumbled out of the woods and into a high school party. She was screaming. Drenched in blood. Then she vanished.

A year later, Annaliese is found wandering down a road hundreds of miles away. She doesn't know who she is. She doesn't know how she got there. She only knows one thing: She is not the real Annaliese Rose Gordon.

Now Annaliese is haunted by strange visions and broken memories. Memories of a reckless, desperate wish . . . a bloody razor . . . and the faces of other girls who disappeared. Piece by piece, Annaliese's fractured memories come together to reveal a violent, endless cycle that she will never escape—unless she can unlock the twisted secrets of her past.

 Beat the Heat Read-a-thon: Day 1!

   I was just planning on updating my original post but I figured that this might be easier for you guys to find and you wouldn't have to go looking for it.  So, I will be doing daily updates for the next two weeks and feel free to click on the banner in the side bar if you want to sign up.  It's not too late!

 

Well, Day 1 was a really good day.  I started right at midnight on Another Little Piece by Kate Karyus Quinn, and let me tell you, it is a very strange book.  I am really enjoying it though and can't wait to finish it, which I will do later on today.

  1. That's a lot of words.

    Also, that last quote is funny.
