ON BOOKS ~ In The Woods...

MizB asks you to:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page.
  • Share the title of the book the teaser comes from…that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!

From pg. 75 of IN THE WOODS by Tana French (fiction)...

"It seems ingenuous to say that the 1980's were a more innocent time, given all that we now know about industrial schools and revered priests and fathers in rocky, lonely corners of the country. But then these were only unthinkable rumors happening somewhere else, people held on to their innocence with a simple and passionate tenacity, and it was perhaps no less real for being chosen and for carrying its own cuplability; Peter's mother called us from the edge of the wood, wiping her hands on her apron, and then left us to our absorbing game and went home to make tea."

I am about halfway through this mystery and am still trying to figure out if I like it or not.

A lot of buzz about this book this week - I've seen it mentioned on several blogs. Sounds interesting. I may have to add it to the never-ending TBR list. Thanks for the teasers.

Your two teasers sound good. I've never heard of the author or the book so you could fool me.

Great teaser. I've heard a lot about this book so I will be looking forward to your final thoughts of it.

"The Woods" is a strange one but I liked it at the end of the day. Hope you will too!

Stick with it, I have heard what a great book it is. It's been on my list for a while. My first post was faulty. Here is mine

Wow, that really is only two sentences!

This is the first I've heard of the book, at least it doesn't seem to be ringing any bells, yet, the name Tanya French sounds awfully familiar. The title mixed with your teaser leaves an eerie, ominous feeling.

I've read a few books like this of late...there's just something there that holds you to it. Hope this one picks up for you, Molly.

I'm still trying to figure out if I like this book, too. I read it last year. I'll be interested to know your thoughts.

Sometimes, when it comes to mysteries, it's the endings that make me decide whether I like the book or if it's just a waste of time. I hope you enjoy this one!
