Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Purple Booker. Here are the rules if you want 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!
This week’s teaser comes from A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir.
“Skies,” Afya says. “I thought you told me you loved stories. Have you ever heard a story of an adventurer with a sane plan?
“Well . . . no.”
“And why do you think that is?”
I am at a loss. “Because . . . ah, because –“
She chuckles again. “Because sane plans never work, girl,” she says. “Only the mad ones do.”
She’s not wrong, Afya. When have the best made plans of any hero in any story ever gone smoothly? It’s always the bizarre plans that are just kooky enough to work that save the day!
No Top Ten this week because the topic is about reading Christmas books and, to be honest, it’s really not my cup of tea. I’m not super into the holiday in that way. Not necessarily a Grinch – it doesn’t annoy me so much that I want to steal everyone else’s fun – but I don’t go all out for Christmas that much, and haven’t since my kids grew out of the Santa phase.
Can anyone believe it’s December already? How did that happen!
Also, I’m very excited to say that sometime over the past couple of days, I hit 600 followers! Thanks everybody! You guys are the best!
Please leave your teasers in comments!
