Teaser Tuesday - Feb 3

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!
Genuinestarts of the Cirque d'Hiver," Jenny marvels. "How high up was your trapeze hung?"
from Emma Donoghue's Frog Music. A tale of (ex-)circus folk and a seller of frogs legs in San Francisco in the 19th century. Early days but I'm rather enjoying this! Based on a true story - rather like the woman who gave birth to rabbits and Astray also by Donoghue - both of which I've recently read but rather than a short story this is a full novel, will see if it sustains interest in a longer read.
