Today we’re gathered to network and share tidbits about our current reads, just so the rest of you will be tempted to try our books. This event is hosted by Should Be Reading.
Here’s how it works:
- 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!
I’m going to share some snippets from The Cloud Chamber, by Joyce Maynard.
This is a unique story about a family that is traumatized by the father’s mysterious gunshot wound. Secrets surround what happened, including where the father has gone. A young boy tries to cope and begins to work on a science project that hopefully will make his dad proud and bring the family together again.
Here’s the teaser:
A long time ago, when he was little, Nate and his dad hiked to the edge of their land together to watch the total eclipse of the sun. They’d buried a time capsule under the poplars that day, with a Matchbox car inside, along with the wrapper from the Mounds bar they’d shared, a handful of plastic Indians, and his dad’s old baseball cap. p. 2
What can you share today? I hope you’ll come over and comment, leaving your links, so we can read your teasers.
