Teaser Tuesdays

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 “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
Be sure 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!

"You could go around implying you'd read all kinds of things, nodding knowingly when someone mentioned, say, War and Peace, and the understanding was that no one would scrutinise your claim too rationally. You have to remember, since we'd been in each other's company constantly since arriving at the Cottages it wasn't possible for any of us to have read War and Peace without the rest noticing."
p121, Never Let Me Go, Kazuo Ishiguro


  1. Ooh, are you enjoying Never Let Me Go? I desperately wanted to love it. And I did for most of the way through. Then somewhere near the end (I can't quite remember the specifics) the author lost me. But it was definitely an intriguing read.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  2. Ishiguro is a wonderful author. Love the teaser; thanks for sharing!

  3. Are you liking the book? I remember I put this on my mental TBR list and sort of forgot about it completely until just now. I'll have to actually write it down somewhere so I don't forget again, lol.

  4. Hi! Thanks for stopping by our teaser. Great teaser! I like this cover a lot better than the one I have!

  11. I heard there's going to be a movie for this! Not quite excited though. I've read its wikipage and didn't like how the story goes. Thanks for sharing and for stopping by!
