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!
Here’s my random teaser for Tuesday:
“They ate in the canteen at the end of the trauma ward, where Sonja flaunted the hospital’s most sophisticated piece of technology, an industrial ice machine that inhaled much of the generator power but provided filtered water. The girl was more impressed by her warped reflection on the back of her spoon. ‘It’s December. The whole world is an ice machine.”
‘Now you’re practical,’ Sonja said.
The girl made a face at the spoon. ‘Can fingers ever grow back?’ – p. 45
Can you guess from what title it’s from? No, problem. It’s a new release!
It’s A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra, published by Random House of Canada, May 7, 2013!
What do you find “vital” in considering a book a great read?
