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 and author too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
"Once I'm sure the others sleep, their breathing heavy in the room, I roll over onto my side and slip the page from my pocket.
The paper feels pulpy and cheap, not like the thick cream-colored sheet with Grandfather's poems. It's old, but not as old as Grandfather's paper. My father might be able to tell me the age; but he;s not here, he let me go. As I unfold the page carefully it makes small sounds that seem loud, and I hope the other girls with think it is the rustling of blankets or an insect singing its wings."
- Crossed by Ally Condie, p.53
(From ARC copy, so pages, the cover and quotes could change.)
As you can tell, I gave a little bit more than 2 lines. I wanted you all to get to read the whole paragraph! :D
Well that’s a teaser from what I’m reading, do you have one to share?
