Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted at The Purple Booker.
Anyone can play along by doing 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!
”Martha’s and Sarah’s grins loomed skeletal in the dimming light. Their faces are enough to scare away death itself, Polly thought.”
(~ A Brutal Chill in August: A Novel of Polly Nichols, The First Victim of Jack the Ripper by Alan M. Clark, Kindle Edition, 2016)
[ A book from Ellon Datlow’s 2017 suggestions, and a pleasant surprise. Not gore and horror, but a nice historical rendition of London’s destitute East End in 1880s.]
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 The Purple Booker.
