Ah, well. Back to the subject at hand. This week I'm starting The Horned Man by James Lasdun, one of the books I've picked for the R.I.P. IV Challenge. Or at least I think I've picked it – it hasn't passed the first-fifty-pages-test yet, but it's been on my TBR list for a while now. This snippet is a bit more than two lines (sorry about that):
The next morning my stepfather took me to the Royal Aldersbury. It was a fine spring day: the May was flowering in the hedges and the apple orchards were in bloom. We drove in silence: by tacit agreement we never spoke to each other when my mother wasn't around. [p. 85]Hmmm. Well, that just makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, now doesn't it?
Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by mizB17 at Should Be Reading. If you'd like to read more teasers, or participate yourself, head on over to her blog. And these are the rules: Grab your current read; Let the book fall open to a random page. Share with us two (2) "teaser" sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12. You also need to share the title of the book that you're getting your "teaser" from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you've given! Please avoid spoilers!
