Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme that’s hosted on Books and a Beat, but I found it on TheTattoodBookGeek. (Who btw is awesome. Check him out if you haven’t already!) It looked interesting so I thought I’d give it a go!
Anyone can play along. Just do this:
– Grab your current read
– Open to a random page
– Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on the page
– BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away. You’re going for aloof — share just enough to make them want more!)
– Share the title & author so other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists!
