Teaser Tuesday: The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To 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!

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black.

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown –
Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

The Ten Most Important Things To Bring To Coldtown

1. Cash and lots of it. You can barter for lots of things inside, but cash is still the most important tool for bribing guards and getting what you want. You’ve been saving up, right? Bring every last penny. It’s not like you’re coming back.
...
10. A buddy. Trust me, you’ll need one.
— Chapter 14



I promised myself a treat for my Christmas break. And then I decided to take a peek and see if there were any teasers to share within the first few pages. There would have been. I could have teased you from here to Sunday, but that would have meant putting down the book. This is a forced break at the beginning of chapter 14 because it’s a break in the narration as well and it also shows what you can expect from this book. I adore Holly Black’s writing and as you can see it sucked (pun sort of intended) me right in. Other people might suffer from insomnia, but I don’t think I’m fooling anyone.

Most likely this won't last until Christmas ... it’ll be a miracle if I don’t finish this by tomorrow. Share your teasers in the comments, I’ll be in need of something to last me on a 7+ hour train journey on Saturday. Happy Tuesday, and best wishes for your pre-Christmas week.

This is the first I saw this book, but it does sound fascinating. I hope you find something to read on that long journey, it will certainly make the time go faster. Happy Reading on your break. I know what you mean about putting a good book down, it is almost impossible.

Sounds like this book has really grabbed you! Your Teaser made me curious about Coldtown, and I can't help but wonder how it got its name.
My Teaser is from CHRISTMAS CALLING.
