Welcome to our exciting Tuesday event 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!

Today I’m celebrating a book that’s been on my TBR stacks for awhile; I bought it just before the movie came out, but somehow, didn’t get around to reading it.  I’m rectifying that this week.

Evening, by Susan Minot, is a dying woman’s flashbacks into secrets and joys of her past.

Here’s a snippet from Amazon:

As Ann Lord lies on her deathbed, her daughter delivers a balsam pillow from the attic. At first the ailing woman is confused, but suddenly the scent reminds her of the “wild tumult” she experienced 40 years earlier…

Teaser:  She stood on a bluff above a cove of churning water.  Grace Stackpole was beside her.  You can’t dive in, it’s full of syringes, she said.  p. 141.

What did you find this week?  I hope you’ll stop by and share some comments and links.

    • Thanks, Coffee/Book Chick, it’s hard to know what to do about books made into movies. I intended to read it first, but I didn’t get around to it. I’m thinking that I will visualize the actors when the characters appear. That’s okay, I guess. Thanks for stopping by.


Please leave your thoughts. Comments, not awards, feed my soul. Thanks!
