Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. The idea is to give everyone a look inside the book you’re reading.

1.) Grab your current read

2.) Open to a random page

3.) Share two teaser sentences from that page

4.) Share the title and author so that other participants know what you’re reading.

This week, two teasers!

First up, The City & The City by China Mieville.

“I told Dhatt a place — I did not know the address, had to describe it in vague topography, which he recognised — a pieces of parkland walking distance from where Yolanda hid, to meet me at the end of the following day. “Anyone asks, tell them I’m working from the hotel. Tell them about all the ridiculous paperwork hoops they make us jump through in Besźel, that keeps me busy.”” (page 211)

Next, In Great Waters by Kit Whitfield.

“Henry could remember his own birth. Crushing pressure, heat, and then the contact with the sea, terrifyingly cold — but at the same time a release from constriction, the instant freedom of the skin.” (page 3)

What are you teasing us with this week?

  1. I agree with Joy – remembering your own birth might be intensely traumatic. And I’ve been meaning to read The City & The City – hope it’s keeping you entertained! Nice teasers.
