Teaser Tuesday (July 13)
Teaser Tuesdays 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 (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
I haven’t actually finished any more books so far this month; I’m only a hundred pages or so from the end of At Swim but I know what happens and can’t bring myself to read it. Do you ever get that? It’s kind of awesome (because I love the characters that much) but also irritating (must. finish. novel!). Anyway. In the meantime, I’ve started reading another novel that’s been on my To Read list for several years now.
Alexander could transmit imagination as some other could transmit lust. Sometimes, when he was lit up and full of gratitude for being understood, Longing, who has the power to achieve all things, would prompt the right word or touch; he would fetch a profound sigh, dragged up it seemed from the depth of his being, and murmur something in the Macedonian of his childhood; and all would be well, or as well as it could ever be.
— p.247, Fire From Heaven by Mary Renault.
