Teaser Tuesday (25) Wildwood by Colin Meloy

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!
Wildwood by Colin Meloy and illustrated by Carson Ellis

The speakers were silent for a moment; the Elder Mystic inhaled a long, dramatic breath of air.  “Mr. Fox,” she said, finally, “I am a woman of infinite patience.  I have devoted my life to the practice of meditation.  I have sat and watched a stone, a single stone, gather moss over the course three weeks.  You, however, are trying this seemingly limitless patience.” The admission seemed to ease her temper, and her voice changed: “If there is a lock, Mr. Fox,” she said calmly, “and there is no key, then the obvious solution is to break the lock. The bell simply must be rung.”  pgs 418 & 419 

This has been taken from an unfinished copy and may change from the final version.

I’ve been reading this book on and off for the past week and have really been enjoying it.  It’s quite long but I find once I pick it up it’s rather difficult to set it back down.  I’m nearly finished with it now and my review will go up before long.
Thanks for subscribing!


  1. Interesting….I’m not really sure what else to say about a teaser like that, but I’m intrigued. And, I just found out that the authors will be heading to my neck of the woods in September, so hopefully I’ll be able to make it. I’m looking forward to seeing what you thought of this one.

  2. Colin Meloy just happens to be one of my all time favorite singers (The Decemberists) so when I heard he was writing a book (which I had mentioned numerous times to my parents that he should do) I pretty much freaked. Thanks so much for the quote because now I’m even more excited! Haha! :)
