Teaser Tuesday - 29 March



Teaser Tuesday

The rules are:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) 'teaser' sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title and author 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!
I'm afraid I was away last week so missed out on this post, but here is one for this week!
The engine makes a lazy, leonine roar - the VW reverses too fast. Joe Napier thumps into the back, yells, and Luisa glimpses him hopping like a slapstick actor.
This is David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas - I was tempted to include several teasers from various parts of the book but maybe that fact is too much of a spoiler, or is it? I don't know yet but it is a compelling read so far! Here's a good summary of what it's about.

Wonderful teaser. It looks worth checking out. If this goes on, how do I reduce my tbr pile?

Here is my Teaser Tuesday: No Turning Back by Kaylea Cross post!

Looks like a fun read! I'll have to check on that book after reading that descriptive teaser.

On another note, love your subtitle!!
