Teaser Tuesday (1)

I decided to try out another weekly meme called Teaser Tuesday. Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB over at 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!

Teaser:

"All this time I've had this weird feeling, like a phantom limb," he said. "You know how, when they cut off your leg or something, they say you can still feel it even after it's gone? Your foot itches, you go to scratch it... but there's nothing to scratch. That's how I felt for ten years. Like something-or someone-is connected to me by an invisible cord, and it's always tugging, tugging, tugging...but when I try to reel it in, there's nothing on the other end." 
-pg.70, How To Say Goodbye In Robot by Natalie Standiford

OK, that was more than two sentence, but I couldn't help it :) I'm almost finished with this one and so far it is really...different. Look out for a review coming soon!

Very interesting, especially with a title like To Say Goodbye In Robot.

Laura Toepfer said...

Different, eh? I'll have to come back for the review.

Yeah, there are times when two sentences just won't cut it. I did four today myself, but feel completely justified. My teaser is here.

I break the two sentence rule regularly.

Love the teaser, I think we've all felt like that at one time or another.

I'm always posting more than 2 sentences.
