TEASER TUESDAY: Thaw | Fiona Robyn


Teaser Tuesday, a blog meme hosted by MizB on Should Be Reading.

Grab your current read. Let the book fall open to a random page. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page. Share the title & author of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR list if they like your teaser. Please avoid spoilers!

So here is my Teaser for Tuesday:

I'd be happy just lying on my back in the middle of a busy pavement, people stepping over me and cursing me for getting in their way. It does something strange to my senses, blunts them - like eating ice-cream when you have a cold. You're vaguely aware that you usually enjoy mint choc chip more, but you carry on eating it just the same.

Okay, that was three sneaky sentences.
Thaw
Fiona Robyn
Pg 39

A fictional diary of a woman giving herself 92 days before she makes the decision of whether to live or not.

What's your Teaser?

  13. Thanks Allison, yes, I do like the cover too -- it gives the impression she is laying there thinking...and she struggles a lot with what is going on with her head, so it fits nicely.

  14. Lying in the middle of a busy pavement may reduce the 92 days she may have to live! Nice tease.

  22. Wow, I like the teaser (and the book cover!). The little blurb sounds fascinating too. I can't say I do the ice cream while sick thing, but I'm a sucker for chocolate bars...
