Teaser Tuesday June 23



Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. 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 teaser!


My Teaser:

But he too was roused, out of his chair, walking away from her to the piano, where he paused, one hand resting on the raised lid, gathering his patience before he turned. In that moment the silence between them expanded.

-pg. 33, The Children Act by Ian McEwan

    1. This is my first one by Ian McEwan. I never read The Atonement. I am a little ashamed. :/

      Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Ooh love the line 'in that moment the silence between them expanded' - makes me want to know why the character feels this way and what the conflict is.

    Great Teaser!
