As unbelievable as this may sound, in between my two book fairs last week, I actually went into a secondhand book store and bought two more books: Probability Moon by Nancy Kress and The Evolution of Jane by Cathleen Schine. As if I needed more books!
The Books Bought meme is hosted by Cindy at Cindy’s Love of Books.
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.)
“She didn’t feel sober enough for O’Connor, so she continued beyond Park Town, walking the things that Mark had told her like dogs on a leash. Walking and walking and wishing that she could bend down and loosen the collars of her thoughts and slip free of them. But she couldn’t; they stayed with her, walking obediently at her heel” (pp. 282-283).
This is from Bloodless Shadow by Victoria Blake.
