I realized I haven't done a Teaser Tuesday in quite a while!
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!
From The Nature of Monsters by Clare Clark:
Everyone was agreed that the fire would burn itself out beofre it reached Swan-street. In Tower-street they had embarked upon the blowing up of houses for a fire-break. She had felt the shocks of the explosions in the soles of her feet as ahse bent over her mending, but although the glass rattled in the windows, she had not been alarmed. On the contrary, her mood had been one of tranquility, even contentment. The pains that had dogged her throughout her seventh month had eased." (Prologue, page ix)
