Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should be Reading:
- 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!
To make up for being late, I thought I might share two teasers from the books that I am reading at the moment. Coincidentally, they are both from Aussie authors which is cool!
The first comes from page 254 of Michelle De Kretser's award winning The Lost Dog:
Tom was thinking of the delight coloured pictures had once brought, before the proliferation of images. He remembered a parcel of foodstuffs that had arrived from England when he was five or six. A spoonful of glowing red jam from a tin wrapped in bright scenery: a gift from another world.
The other book I am reading is Lady Friday by Garth Nix - book number 5 in the Keys to the Kingdom series. This teaser is from page 181:
She says, "Usually we would either kill you or take you to Dusk for judgement. But Dusk has gone, and Lady Friday too. Dawn, who claims to speak for them, is not our master.
