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?

Both are great teasers!
I like the teaser from The Whale.
Here’s my teaser.
Great teasers, I haven’t heard of either one. My Teaser is here.
What a lovely opening for a nonfiction book- and what a great story. I really hope that one works out. Kraken sounds great, too. Did you plan for two sea-related books at once, or did it just sort of happen?
My teaser is here.
Nope, not planned, just sort of happened this morning.
Great teasers! Kraken is on my tbr pile! Happy reading 🙂
I loved the Whale teaser – how intriguing! My teaser for this week is here: http://wp.me/pXuHW-4j
Great teasers…enjoy the books.
Kraken’s already on my wishlist. Maybe I should put Whale on too. Thank you for stopping by my TT.
