Teaser Tuesdays



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
I have 2 teasers from two ARCs that I just received today.
I am really excited about both of these.

"She was coming towards me, hour by hour. She wouldn't get the sickness, and no one would kill her, because she was so smart and strong"
The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood:Published by Doubleday (Random House),End of September release. (quote from ARC, check against the finished book).

"It was my father who called the city the Mansion on the River. He was talking about Charleston, South Carolina, and he was a native son, peacock proud of a town so pretty it makes your eyes ache with pleasure just to walk down its spellbinding, narrow streets."
South of Broad by Pat Conroy- Published by Doubleday (Random House), September release. (quote from ARC, check against the finished book).

Happy Reading!
