TEASER TUESDAY: 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 so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teaser
Day 812: It’s my honor to serve. It’s my honor, I know it is, and yet…Ancestors, don’t read this, but I begin to wonder, is it right? The lady is jailed for neglecting her duty, but I am jailed for fulfilling mine. –page 94, Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale.
My friend Carol and I were discussing books in the lunch room one day. I told Carol that I wanted to lend her a book by my favorite author because I knew she would love it and instantly become a fan of everything this author had ever written. But I also told Carol that I was scared to actually recommend it to her because there was one line in the book that was uncharacteristic of the author and I didn’t want to be judged on that line alone. Carol looked at me weirdly and said “Sunshine?”
I think my jaw actually dropped because that was the exact novel I meant. From that moment on, Carol has been lending me books she knows I will love. She lent this one to me over six months ago and I haven’t gotten the chance to read it until now. But in flipping through the novel to find a teaser quote, I think Carol hit the nail on the head. I predict I will love this book.
