Teaser Tuesdays: Skios

Wow, it's been a long, long time since I posted a Teaser Tuesday quote. The hubby and I have been spending the last couple of months getting ready for our move to Texas. And then actually moving to Texas. And then getting settled in the new house in Texas.

And all during that time, I really haven't had much time for blogging -- or reading, either. So this week's quote is coming from one of the books I should be reading right now -- Michael Frayn's new novel, Skios:
...she had slowly become aware of...what? Something. Some kind of feeling in her back. An uneasiness...The faint clammy touch of an alien gaze resting upon it. She was not alone. She was being watched. This was when the freezing paralysis had crept through her, even in the heat of the mid-morning sun. (p.92)
Sorry -- I know that's a lot more than two sentences (as usual). And since I haven't actually started this one, I'm not sure what's going on there, or who's watching who. Sounds a little more mysterious than I usually expect from Frayn, but snippets can be deceiving.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by mizB at Should Be Reading. If you'd like to read more teasers, or take part yourself, just head on over to her blog.

And please feel free to leave me a link to your Teaser Tuesday post in your comment here.

  5. I hope all went well with the move! And this teaser is quite suspenseful!

  6. Well, I am actually reading Skios as we speak and I have no idea what that quote is about. It is a funny book...lol

  7. Sounds creepy. I've never read anything by Skios.


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
