Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat.
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!
“Isserley always drove straight past a hitch-hiker when she first saw him, to give herself time to size him up. She was looking for big muscles: a hunk on legs – puny, scrawny specimens were no use to her.”
(~ Under the Skin by Michel Faber, Kindle Edition, 2000)
[Note: This is the incipit of one of the best books I have ever read about aliens – for one reason: it’s written from the alien perspective, and your literally breathe their otherness in every page. The movie is good, but the novel is a masterpiece. I’ll write soon a comparative review, but for the moment, enjoy this teaser.]
PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your ‘teasers’ in a comment here and/or in Books and a Beat’s blog.
