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!
Another week with two teasers from me. The first comes from page 244 of The Likeness by Tana French. I liked In the Woods when I read it a while ago, and I love that even though the main character from that book isn't present, so far at least, in this book, he is very much an influence. It's very cleverly done. Anyway, here's the teaser:
Very few people are willing to ditch their whole lives and spend years bouncing around the world after some girl who pissed them off. Frank has this tendency to go for the more interesting theory rather than the more likely one, and I'd filed this one somewhere between Outside Chance and Pure Hollywood Melodrama.
My second teaser comes from page 162 of Duchess by Night by Eloisa James, a historical romance which is part of her Desperate Duchesses series. It's very different from the taught psychological crime novel that is The Likeness, that's for sure!
"Alas, I bring ill tidings," Strange said, throwing himself into an armchair. "I've insulted young Harry here, and he's determined to leave the house since my mind is black as a privy. I do have that phrase right, don't I, Harry?"
