Teaser Tuesday - Jan 8

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!
George had met Stokes once before, in Cambridge, when they'd all gone out in a punt, Cecil clearly exciting his guest by his lordly thrust and toss of the pole and the intermittent recital of sonnets. Stokes seemed not to remember that George had been of the party, and George didn't remind him, when the talk turned to their Cambridge days.
Alan Hollinghurst's The Stranger's Child for which there was an earlier teaser last week. A carefully chosen extract....

Sounds interesting. My teasers this week are from A Perfect Blood by Kim Harrison and Divergent by Veronica Roth. Happy reading!

Excited by sonnet recital? I suppose anything's possible. What a wonderful teaser!
