Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should be Reading. Anyone can play along? Just by doing 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!
- Share the title and author, so that other bloggers and readers can add the book to their "to read" lists.
