Teaser Tuesdays (November 4)
Should Be Reading hosts the Teaser Tuesdays weekly event.
My modified rules are as follows:
Grab your current read. Pick two or three “teaser” sentences more or less at random from the book, anywhere on the page. You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your teaser from… that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given! (Please avoid spoilers!) (Read the official Teaser Tuesday rules.)
My first teaser:
“Marina woke from her dream with a feeling of déjà vu. It was a repeating coda, always the same and always the last one she had before opening her eyes to consciousness. Every morning for the last two months, she’d woken up trying to speak through the roses in her mouth, trying to get the man to turn around” (pp. 123-124).
This is from The Grift by Debra Ginsberg.
My second teaser:
“You could walk a hundred blocks and pass a thousand people and no one would ever notice you, even if, five minutes ago, your face was on everyone’s television, on the front page of every paper. That fast, you could become a ghost. I was already losing myself, slipping through the fissures that were suddenly appearing in the facade of my life. I was vapor” (p. 77).
This is from Beautiful Lies by Lisa Unger.
