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!
My teasers are from Alice I Have Been by Melanie Benjamin…
- “Instead, my heart nearly broke at the look on Mr. Dodgson’s face as he gazed down at me, his eyes dark in the amber glow of the dancing lights. He did not reflect back our shared joy; rather, the corners of his eyes, his mouth, his chin, even, seemed pulled down with sorrow. He stared at me as if i wasn’t standing right there beside him, my hand in his; instead, he blinked at me as if I was a dream —and he was about to awaken.” (pg 119, ARC copy, final printed version may be different)
I’m enjoying this book quite a lot. I keep picking it up to read again and again even though I’m trying to prolong the story for myself. How about you – do you have any teasers from whatever you’re reading this week? Leave me your link or share them with me in your comment.
