Today I decided to join in with the weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should be Reading– Teaser Tuesdays!
Anyone can take part, so here are the rules:
- 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Here’s my teaser:
“Those who became intimidated and turned back remained animals, beasts of burden, slaughtered for flesh, hunted for fun, counted as profit, admired as innocent. Those who swam on and made it to the farther shore were given the gifts of consciousness and language.”
~p. 138, Wicked, The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire.
