Teaser Tuesday - April 23



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!
He watched the strange programmes that the television pumped out in the small hours. Open University documentaries about glaciers.
From Mark Haddon's A spot of bother our book group book of the month like the teaser for last week. For some reason I'm reminded of a Brian Rix farce! Still trying to identify the period, late night OU programmes are reminiscent of a certain era.
(fixed title - was I that far ahead of myself?!)

I am a big fan of Mark Haddon since reading The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime. And yet, I haven't been able to get my hands on this book! Thanks for the tease, though.

I've heard a lot of people liked The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime. I've never read it but it is mentioned several times in the book I'm reading now.

Here's my teaser.

Interesting teaser, I hadn't heard of this one.

Here's my teaser from SUDDENLY ROYAL by Nichole Chase.
