Kelly's: TEASER TUESDAY #14

Photobucket

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!

I've just started West of Here by Jonathan Evison and it's a pretty big book. I only have 4 days to read it because it's due back at the library and I can't renew it. Yikes! So here's a quote from page 6 to wet your whistle.

"Shortly after sunrise, the shack tottered once, issues a long plaintive moan, then collapsed in a heap. There followed a flash of fire and ice, and one dull moment of confusion, before Hoko extricated herself and the child from beneath the rubble and hurried the infant through the veil of snow toward the safety of the longhouse, oblivious of the burns up and down her arms."

Enjoy your Tuesday! I'll be seeing you tomorrow!
