TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
- Grab your current read.
Let the book fall open to a random page.
Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
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!
I am reading two books at the same time, so I will give you a taste of each one.
The Weight of Heaven by Thrity Umrigar (Advanced Reader’s Copy):
“I can’t.” Instinctively, Frank turned to Gulab for support. The man was staring at Frank in fascination, as if he was solving a puzzle. Slowly, a look of understanding spread across his face. But Frank was too anguished to register much of this. He felt like a cornered animal, actually rubbing hi s hand over his neck, where he felt the unmistakable bite of a noose being tightened.
And from A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray:
She stares into the fire, knitting ferociously, the needles clicking together, two sharp teeth in the wool. Too late I realized what I’ve done. I’ve struck at the very heart of Ann’s hope, a hope that she could become someone else, someone with a life that doesn’t involve spending the rest of her days as a governess to some rich man’s children, grooming them for a wonderful life and opportunities she’ll never see.
