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!
I'm reading Fall Asleep Forgetting by Georgeann Packard, a review copy from The Permanent Press. It's taking me a long time to read, simply because the language is so rich and the reading experience so intense. I started marking pages with beautiful passages, but gave up, as nearly every page was dog-eared. Utterly gorgeous, riveting, filled to the brim with truth and beauty. Practically any page would be perfect for Teaser Tuesdays, but I'm delighted to have randomly turned to this lovely passage:
Now I sit with her absence in my small, cold cell. Her absence seems more tangible and real than her presence was. I can almost touch the watery empty space she inhabited that followed me here. (page 185, galley)
