Teaser Tuesday

7 May

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Should Be Reading.

  • 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!


Book: I’ve just started A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry, which was given to me for my birthday by my boss as it’s her favourite book ever. I’m currently up to page 58, and my teaser is from page 123.

But the stories kept multiplying: someone had been knifed in the bazaar in town; a sadhu hacked to death at the bus station; a settlement razed to the ground. The tension spread through the entire district.

    I think I’d have to put this book on my TBR list just because of the great cover. But that’s a great teaser, too. Thanks for sharing!

      It’s a beautiful cover, I love it. It seems to have lots of rave reviews so I think it’s probably a good one to put on your TBR list! Thanks for reading my teaser 🙂

    Wow, great teaser — sounds like a book I might like.

    My teaser is from THE HAUNTING SEASON by Michelle Muto.
