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:
Yes, there was a bone in the soup. Yes, it was a smelly bone.
I know you do not eat a smelly bone. But many of the _____________ __ ___________ like to eat such bones. Bobkittens eat them, and rakunks, and pigoons, and liobams. They all eat smelly bones. And bears eat them.
I will tell you what a bear is later.
We don’t need to talk any more about smelly bones right now.
Can you guess from what title it’s from? (I’ll give you a hint…it hits bookshelves TODAY!)
It’s MaddAddam by Margaret Atwood, published by McClelland & Stewart, August 27, 2013!
Have you read the other two books in this trilogy: Oryx & Crake and The Year of the Flood?
What do you think of the “waterless flood”? Self-fulfilling prophecy or apocalyptic fantasy?
