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!
This week’s teasers:
After half an hour of this, during which we skirted the edge of Spyglass Hill and began a slow descent towards the south-east corner of the island, our suspicions deepened. The ground here was more fertile, and we found large stretches of azalea, mainly red and purple, with a few thickets of nutmeg trees that mixed their spice with the aroma of flowers.
This is from page 166 of Silver by Andrew Motion. I received an e-book ARC of this last week and am enjoying it so far. It is a book about the return to the island from Treasure Island, this time by the children of the main characters from Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic. It is released in Canada today, although I think it has been out in other places for a few months. If you liked Treasure Island you will enjoy this one as well.
