Teaser Tuesday (July 23)

tteTeaser 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 teaser!

Here’s mine for the week:

Two years of hiding, two years of relying on others, two years living with the fear of betrayal; and before that the years of listening to Ramón’s lies and then the years when he didn’t even lie and boasted to her of his affairs; and before that, her life in Oviedo, and how life revolved around her father, his afternoon siestas when the the house was shuttered so tight that no light entered and she had to lie on her bed and will herself not to fall asleep, just so she could hold on to that little piece of, what was it Manuel had said?, “independence”. Yes, she did like her independence.

    Intriguing teaser. It sounds like she has an interesting, uncomfortable life. Please come see my teasers from Runt by Nora Raleigh Baskin and The White Princess by Philippa Gregory. Happy reading!

    Wow, two years of relying on others would probably kill me. I might be a little Type A…
