Teaser Tuesday #75: Forest of Whispers by Jennifer Murgia

Welcome to Teaser Tuesdays.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

1. Grab your current read

2. Open to a random page

3. 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 muchaway! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

4. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My current read is Forest of Whispers by Jennifer Murgia and my three lines are from location 1782 of 3666:

You must lie to them...

"Say you are, and this trial will be easy for you."

Lie, my daughter. You must lie!

Raised by an old fortune-teller within the dark veil of the Bavarian Black Forest, Rune has learned two valuable lessons: only take from the forest that which you can use, and never, never look anyone in the eye in the village. For something terrible happened in the forest long ago... and now, the whispers of a long-dead mother with a vengeful secret have come haunting.

Forced to flee all she has ever known, Rune soon learns of a legacy she is bound to--one that is drenched in fear, witchcraft and murder--a birthright that stretches beyond the grave to the trees where Rune is no longer safe

  3. Great teaser! Sounds like this one may be a bit creepy.

  5. intriguing teaser! it sounds like a horror one.

  6. I'm curious. Say you are ... what?? Why does someone want her to lie?
