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.
