Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly event hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
Here is how it works:
Grab your current read
Open to a random page
Share two (2 or 3) “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 others can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
It has been a while since I participated in this meme (or any for that matter), so I'm happy to come back with a teaser from The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova. I'm currently reading the ARC, so my teaser may not reflect the final copy, though so far I hope it does. This book is beautifully written with many lush descriptions.
Here's my teaser:
I found myself staring at her, unexpectedly stirred. Her gaze was knowing, as she stood there behind the counter, her body lean and flexible under a tight zipped jacket, the smallest curve of hip showng between that and the top of her black skirt - that would be the maximum glimpse of abdominal skin permitted in this gallery full of nudes, I speculated.I love it when the 2 sentences allowed include run-ons that give a much bigger tease! Hope you enjoyed it.
Mel at He Followed Me Home also posted a teaser for The Swan Thieves, click here to check it out.
