Teaser Tuesdays

Last Tuesday I slept late and missed the teasing so this week, it’s TWO teasers. And, since I’m reading a non-fiction book and I like the fiction teasers more, I thought I would do one from my current read and one from my next read.

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.

Play along: Grab your current read; Open to a random page; Share two teaser sentences from that page; Share the title and author so that other participants know what you’re reading.

First up, The Whale: In Search of the Giants of the Sea by Philip Hoare.

“Perhaps it is because I was nearly born underwater.

A day or so before my mother was due to give birth to me, she and my father visited Portsmouth’s naval dockyard, where they were taken on a tour of a submarine.” (1)

Next on the ever voluminous TBR, Kraken by China Miéville.

“The sea is full of saints. You know that? You know that: you’re a big boy.” (10)

What are you teasing us with this week?
