Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. It is a fun way of sharing your current read and involves 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!

My current read is Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood:

"I look at him, then look away. An apple, I say. He must think I am simple; or else it is a trick of some sort; or else he is mad and that is why they locked the door - they've locked me into this room with a madman."  p.40

Alias Grace is a historical fiction novel about convicted "murderess" Grace Marks. I'm enjoying it so far. I have read and reviewed two other books by Margaret Atwood: The Blind Assassin and The Handmaid's Tale.  I would recommend The Blind Assassin to everyone without hesitation, it's simply wonderful.

Happy reading!


  1. At first glance, I thought this wouldn't be for me. But the more I read, I thought I may like all of her books. Thanks for introducing me to a new author, Mel.

  2. I'm yet to read an Atwood book ... one of those should-read authors. I like the sound of this teaser and I think I'll make an extra effort next time I'm at the library. My teaser is here: http://writenotereviews.com/2014/10/21/teaser-tuesday-golden-boys-by-sonya-hartnett/

  3. This one of my favourite books - I loved it. glad you're liking it too.

  4. I don't feel immediately drawn in to this one, but I see you're not the only one who highly recommended this book :)

  5. I love this author, and somehow missed this one. Adding it immediately!

    Thanks for sharing...and here's mine: “FURTHER OUT THAN YOU THOUGHT”

  6. Good Teaser. I've heard wonderful things about The Blind Assassin but haven't read it. I also haven't read Alias Grace. Both sound like good stories.
    My Tuesday post features THE LITTLEST COWBOY.

  7. Atwood is not my favourite author, but that does sound interesting.

    I have two teasers today from Veronica Roth’s YA dystopian “Divergent” series:


  8. I've only ever read 'The Handmaid's Tale' by her and am currently, slowly, reading 'Oryx and Crake', which is blowing my mind. I love the sound of your teaser, I'll have to read this one! Thanks for dropping by and sorry for such a late visit back! Have a great week!
