Should Be Reading hosts the Teaser Tuesdays weekly bookish meme.
My modified rules are as follows:
Grab your current read. Pick two or three (or four or five!) “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.)
It’s been an age since I’ve posted a TT post, and this one is actually my sister Brogan’s teaser:
“In the evenings the other girls would lie around the dormitory in their underwear, in groups like bored, basking seals. They would paint their toenails from small vials of blood-red lacquer. They would conduct inexpert conversations that tended inevitably towards cruelty. A subject would enter their midst, like a forest creature stepping into a clearing, and they would surround it, at first playful, then taunting, until with increasing savagery they would bring it down among them. I wanted to go home.” (p. 70)
This is from The Lucky Ones by Rachel Cusk.
