Teaser Tuesdays

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!

So my teaser this week is from the book, Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. It's been on my bookshelf for awhile now, but I never picked it up. So I'm reading it now.

Never Let Me Go

A part of me wanted badly to tell him what was going on, and I suppose I knew that to do anything else would be to betray the trust we'd built up since the moment I'd reminded him about his polo shirt. And for me to strap up his arm in a splint would have meant my becoming one of the main perpetrators of the joke.

So what is your teaser this week?

  7. I really enjoyed Never Let Me Go. I hope you do, too.

    As an editor, I love the idea of paring a book review down to five lines. I'm going to have to peruse some of your reviews!
