Teaser Tuesday – 11 August: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

teaser-tuesdayIt’s that time of week again for Should Be Reading’s fun meme Teaser Tuesdays.

So how does this work:

  • Grab your current book
  • 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!

Harry Potter Book 1Today’s teaser comes from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J. K. Rowling, which I am reading for the Harry Potter Reading Challenge hosted by Galleysmith.

Something really extraordinary had to be inside this top security vault, Harry was sure, and he leaned forward eagerly, expecting to see fabulous jewels at the very least – but at first he thought it was empty. Then he noticed a grubby little package wrapped up in brown paper lying on the floor.” (Pg 76)

QUESTION OF THE DAY:

What’s your teaser for this Tuesday? Add to the comments and let me know what you think of that book so far, because I’m always looking for some new books to sample!
