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!
Leave a comment with your answers (if you don’t have a blog), or with a link to where your TEASER TUESDAYS post can be found!
** If you’re finding out about this event later in the week, you can still play along! **
I've got a few books in the fire, but I'll just post from 2. . .
The first is from Stephanie Meyer's recently released Breaking Dawn, the last installment of her Twilight series:
"'Imagine kissing that.'
My throat ripped into flames like pulling the cord on a hot air balloon." (p. 484)
The second is from Musicophilia by Oliver Sacks.
"But for some people, it may assume an elaborate, phantasmagoric form remarkable for its mimicry, antics, playfulness, inventions and unexpected and sometimes surreal associations. People with this rarer, phantasmagoric form of Tourette's may show much more complex reactions to music." (p. 227) [Yes, that is, indeed, only two sentences!]
An aside: It is hard to get relatively new hardbacks book to fall open randomly anywhere. Just so you know.
