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!
*In this teaser Voltaire is speaking to his calligrapher, but he could have just as easily been referring to me.
“She ragged like a magpie for six months until he took one job and quit, then another, moving them further away with each job and leaving them less to live on.
Mind games, isolation and dependence: the tools of a batterer, Ginger would learn years later.”
