Teaser Tuesdays: The Night Circus
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Jenn @ A Daily Rhythm. Here are the rules: grab whatever you're reading, open to a random page, select no more than two sentence (NO SPOILERS), share the title and author, and GO!
Here's this week's teaser:
"In response, Celia goes to the wall and removes a thin Ottoman dagger with a jade hilt from where it hangs with its partner.

Without hesitating, she plunges the blade into the back of her hand, piercing through skin and flesh and cards and into the felt underneath." --page 281The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
