“I was pretending that I did not speak their language; on the moon we spoke a soft, liquid tongue, and sang in the starlight, looking down on the dead dried world; I was almost halfway past the fence.”
– p. 16 of We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson –
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!
I love love this book! Hope you´re enjoying it! 🙂
I’ve heard so much about this book and never picked it up, but your teaser has me intrigued.
Well I guess that’s the point of teaser Tuesday now isn’t it?
