My ‘Teaser Tuesday’ this week, comes from a book which I first talked about some weeks ago, in my ‘Mailbox Monday’ post.
I have literally just taken this book from my TBR pile and put my bookmark inside the front cover, so my teaser sentences will be a surprise to me as well!!
‘Devil’s Peak’ by Deon Meyer
Teaser sentences come from page 109
“Thobela was drinking a Coke at the Wimpey outside tables in St Georges. He read the front-page article of the ‘Argus’ that speculated about the death of Enver Davids. Sensationalised by an anonymous woman’s phone call.”
“He turned the page. On page three there was an article on a radio station’s phone-in opinion poll. Should the death penalty be reinstated? Eighty-seven per cent of listeners had voted ‘yes’.”
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of ‘Should Be Reading’.
Anyone can take part, by just doing the following:
1. Grab your current read.
2. Open to a random page.
3. Share two “teaser” sentences, from somewhere on that page.
4. Be careful not to share “spoiler” sentences, that give away too much about the book.
5. Remember to share the title and author too.
6. Head on over to ‘should be reading’ and leave a link to your post, so that others can share it.
Don’t forget that MizB and all the participants of the meme, love to receive your comments and thoughts, so please take the time to leave a comment after linking.
I hope you all have some great lines to share with me this week.
Update 10th May 2011:
