Teaser Tuesday - Afraid of The Dark by James Grippando

Today's teaser comes from a book that... was recommended by one of the blogs I follow. I can't remember which, but I'll look it up when I'm done. I don't want to let anything spoil the book!

Oh, and I mentioned that I was reading the End of the World Running Club in a previous post, but I put it down halfway and that was a huge huge mistake. When I picked it up, I no longer wanted to read it, and rather than force myself (and end up giving the book an unfairly negative review which it probably didn't deserve), I decided to just let it go.

Let it go~

I would insert an Elsa gif, but I'm bad at gifs. Like, really bad. Anyway, I'm reading Afraid of the Dark by James Grippando and I'm really loving it! It's totally got my sucked in. Although my teaser is kind of a downer:

"Jack's voice cracked for the third time. Lengthy eulogies were inappropriate at a Jewish funeral on a Friday afternoon, but delivery of even a short one was painful."
What is your teaser this week?

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jenn of Books and a Beat. 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!


  1. I spotted this recently somewhere. Sounds interesting and I enjoy a good mystery.

    My TT from Chasing Fireflies

  2. This book sounds intriguing. I love the cover. Hope you enjoy it!

    Here's my Teaser Tuesday post for this week.

  3. This sounds good. I'll have to add it to my list. My teaser this week comes from Death on the Sapphire by R. J. Koreto. Happy reading!

  4. I've heard of this author but haven't read any of his books. This sounds like a good one.
    My Tuesday post features LA VIE EN ROSE

  5. I read another of Grippando's books and really enjoyed it. I am not sure why I haven't read more by him. This one sounds right up my alley. I am glad you are enjoying it!

    I've had it happen too where I set a book aside and then have no motivation to pick it back up again. :-(

    1. I finished it today, and it was a good read(: I'll definitely be checking out more of his books.

  6. Sounds like an interesting read.


I really do appreciate all comments, and I'll try my best to reply within 24 hours!
