Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm. Here are the rules if you would like to play along:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Until then, she’d been making out the whole thing was a bit of a joke, that if anything she was going along with it to please Chrissie. And she’d talked a lot about how we weren’t exploring our freedom nearly enough since leaving Hailsham; how anyway, she’d always wanted to go to Norfolk to “find all our lost things.” In other words, she’d gone out of her way to let us know she wasn’t very serious about the prospect of finding her “possible.”
– Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
The “she” in this quote is Ruth, a good friend of the narrator, Kathy. I could explain more about what this quote means, but it would take a lot of time and would spoil a lot about the book. And no one wants that. 🙂
Please leave your teasers in comments!

hmmm that’s interesting! I wonder WHY she’s acting like that.
trish – my teaser
There are a lot of reasons, really. Ruth is a pretty complicated person at times, but deep down, I think she’s also very insecure.
Oh what a great book. Hope you are enjoying it.
This is a re-read for me, but it’s been a while. I love this book. 🙂
Happy reading. 🙂

Happy reading to you too!
Sounds a bit magical. What genre is it?
My teaser this week is from Isaac Asimov http://wp.me/p3Nz8P-su
What genre? Hard to say, really. Not fantasy, but maybe a bit of light sci-fi with a touch of dystopian. Reads more like literary fiction too.
Now I am definitely curious! I have been noticing this book….thanks for sharing. Here’s mine: “BEFORE WE MET”
It’s one of those books that sticks with you. This is my third time reading it, I think.
I’ve been wanting to read this book–or anything by this author–for awhile now. I am not sure why I haven’t yet.
I highly recommend this one, although I haven’t read any of Ishiguro’s other works. I’m sure they are also good – he’s a brilliant writer.
Sounds interesting. I’m curious about “finding her possible.”
My Tuesday post features A Walk in the Woods.
Thanks! The “possibles” are sort of the point in the story where the plot twists start happening. Good times. 🙂
