Should Be Reading. TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
Grab your current read.
Let the book fall open to a random page.
Share with us two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your
“teaser” from … that way people can have some great book
recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
This week my teaser is from The Painted Girls by Cathy Marie Buchanan:
Only a woman sitting slumped across the tavern stays as long as we do, always gazing down, just past the glass of cassis she cannot muster the will to take. It breaks my heart, the loneliness in the face of that woman, the fellow sitting beside her, reading the newspaper and dozing off without so much as a moment's notice given over to her, and here is what I imagine brought her to this place.
