Teaser Tuesday: Howls Moving Castle

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!

My Teaser:
 
“Sophie’s sympathy shrank quite sharply. It occurred to her that is Howl could cover himself with green slime so easily, then he could just as easily turn his hair the proper color. “Then why don’t you feel the girl a love potion and get it over with?” she said.
“Oh, no,” said Howl. “That’s not playing the game. That would spoil the fun.”
Page 123 of Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones

  3. This was such a fun book. It reminded me of Patricia Wrede's Enchanted Forest Chronicles. I hope you are enjoying it.

    I have two again this week. My first teaser is from The Dragon's Tooth by N. D. Wilson and my second is from Evil Ways by Justin Gustainis. Happy reading!
