Teaser Tuesdays (May 5)
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:
“Katie was a merciless interrogator, and she had an uncanny way of reading Ida’s most secret thoughts. Katie always had to know all, down to the most intimate and embarrassing details, which she picked over with relish, like a carnivorous bird” (p. 75).
This is from Katherine’s Wish by Linda Lappin.
My second teaser:
“She was always getting lost or losing people only to find them again, to her great surprise, round the next tree or the next corner. ‘Oh, there you are after all’” (p. 27).
This is from “Prelude” in Bliss and Other Stories by Katherine Mansfield.
