Okay, I ripped this off
borrowed this from Minds Alive on the Shelves
, who got it from Should be Reading
, a great blog I’ve never visited before today. Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme that is just too much fun to pass up.
Here’s how it works:
● Grab your current read.
● Let the book fall open to a random page.
Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
● You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
● Please avoid spoilers!
So, here are my sentences for today, between lines 7 and 12, from my current book, Netochka Nezvanova, a Penguin Classic… hmmm. 1, 2, skip a few.. Ok, here we go, from page 103:
“Two years later, while the family was at the Prince’s summer villa, little Sasha, Katya’s younger brother, fell into the river Neva. The Princess screamed, and her first thought was to throw herself into the water after her son.”
Since I’m only on page 15, I have no idea what’s going on down the road on page 103. But it sounds interesting!
Play along if you’d like. I’m going to tag a few people for fun, but anyone is welcome to join in!
