Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My return tease is from Caleb’s Crossing by Geraldine Brooks:

“Slowly at first, my limbs found the rhythm. Though ceased, and an animal sense drove me until, in the end, I danced with abandon. If Satan had me in his hand that night, then I confess it: I welcomed his touch.”

Good golly, I love Geraldine Brooks. Everything she writes just sucks me in. I swear my kids know if I’m reading one of her books they have to give me a good shake to get my attention because I’m just lost inside her stories.
