I haven’t done this for ages, but I’ve been getting the hankering again. For anyone who isn’t familiar with the Teaser Tuesdays hosted by MizB at the Should Be Reading book blog, here’s how it goes:
- Grab your current book.
- Open to a random page.
- Take two (2) sentences (and technically, that really means two, and really means sentences, not paragraphs) from that page
- Post those two sentences, along with the book title and page number, so interested people can find them if they want
- Do not post Spoilers!! That is, sentences that give away too much of the plot or some vital piece of information.
So here’s mine today, from A Version of the Truth by Jennier Kaufman and Karen Mack. It’s about a young woman who lies to get an office job at a university. And as she’s exposed to the knowledge and mind set at university, she herself begins to change and grow. So here’s the teaser (and of course I immediately break my “two sentences means TWO” rule, about which I feel surprisingly strongly; but “That’s odd” just had to be included because it was jammed in between my actual two sentences. Next time for sure!):
I feel energized, happy, almost as if I was playing hooky. That’s odd. I get the same feeling going to class that I used to when I cut it.
– A Version of the Truth, p. 67
And there you have it! If you have a Teaser of your own, head on over to mention it at the Should Be Reading blog. Happy reading!
