First Chapter, First Paragraph, Tuesday Intros is hosted by Bibliophile by the Seawhere bloggers share the first paragraph or two of the book they are currently reading/thinking about reading soon.Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. 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 do not require life to be neat and orderly. Anyone who doubts that should dig around in my backpack, where you will likely find a half-eaten candy bar that has been there since Iowa - a state we moved from nearly a year ago."
I love this intro mainly because of the first sentence.
"I could feel my eyebrow beginning to arch upward, but I tried to keep my expression neutral." - Page 25
I really like this quote!
"The man who sat before me at seven o'clock on a Tuesday evening was lying.He'd come with an impeccable reference from a barrister client of mine, and though he was barely thirty-five, the tailoring of his three-piece suit and the glint of his watch chain spoke of success. He wore power easily in his posture and the set of his shoulders, like a man accustomed to it, and yet the problem he set me was not only trifling; it was false."
I love this intro because it goes straight in and makes me feel like I am there and desperate to know what he's lying about and why!
"The back of my neck prickled when I rounded the corner down the way, and I feared that if I turned my head, I'd find the shine of Lucas's spectacles in the lamplight. Or the face of the deceased Albrecht Schendel." - Page 60
I just finished this book and I can tell you that it's wonderful and haunting and that I am now desperate to read everything else she has written. I really wanted to use this book for a teaser and then discovered how hard that was to do without spoilers but I managed! Seriously, I loved basically every line in this book.
