Welcome to Teaser Tuesday, the weekly Meme that wants you to add books to your TBR, or just share what you are currently reading. It is very easy to play along:

• 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! Everyone loves Teaser Tuesday.

“Night falls. Or has fallen. Why is it that night falls, instead of rising, like the dawn? Yet if you look east, at sunset, you can see night rising, not falling; darkness lifting into the sky, up from the horizon, like a black sun behind cloud cover. Like smoke from an unseen fire, a line of fire just below the horizon, brushfire or a burning city. Maybe night falls because it’s heavy, a thick curtain pulled up over the eyes. Wool blanket.”
― Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale

I have been bouncing around with this one a bit, I am enjoying it more then I did the first time but still a little on the fence about it.

  1. I loved this book! I’m now watching the Hulu production based on it.

    Here’s mine: “SAME BEACH, NEXT YEAR”

  2. Great teaser! This classic has been on my TBR for years… I hope it will get better for you!

    Here’s my teaser of The Gypsy Moth Summer by Julia Fierro. Happy reading!

  4. P.D. Workman says:

    I’m not sure that one is ever going to make it to my list. We’ll see.

    Mine this week is from Michael Connelly, part of his Lincoln Lawyer series. https://wp.me/p3Nz8P-1ka

  5. Julika says:

    This is on my pile, but it’s not the one shouting and demanding to be read at the next possible moment.

    My teaser is from Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor.

  6. Great teaser. I’ve been thinking of picking this up again too.

    Here’s the teaser at Bookmunchies (:

  7. Laura Thomas says:

    That kind of makes sense:) It’s been some time since I read this. I’ll probably read it again. Been seeing it everywhere.

    My TT from River Of Teeth

  8. I enjoyed Handmaid’s Tale when I read it many years ago. It’s certainly a timely book right now.

    Here’s my teaser:

    This is one of my all-time favorite books. Simply loved it.

    Here’s my teaser: http://nishitak.com/2017/05/30/tt-constant-gardener-john-le-carre/

  12. Laura says:

    Love the teaser. It’s been ages since I read the book. My teaser is from a humorous mystery: Designer Dirty Laundry http://razzberrycoloredglasses.blogspot.com/2017/05/teaser-tuesday-designer-dirty-laundry.html

  13. I started watching the show at the weekend so have been very tempted to try and get the book.

    My teaser is also from a book that was recently made into a TV show https://iwuvbooks.wordpress.com/2017/05/30/teaser-tuesday-30th-may-2017/

  14. I’ve never been a big Atwood fan. I hope you end up enjoying it, though! Mine is here :

  15. I have never read any of Margaret Attwood’s books, bu this one sounds very intense, with thinking far ahead of its time – Not sure that it is one for me, but great teaser lines.

    My teaser lines this time, come from a rather intense thriller – ‘Little Boy Lost’ by J.D. Trafford – which I am thoroughly engrossed in, but I suspect that many of you will either love or hate!

    ‘Happy Reading’ everyone 🙂

    Here is mine: I hadn’t seen Sally in many years and she’d changed too. If I’d ever doubted that Sally was my mother’s half-sister, I was convinced the moment she said hello. America’s First Daughter by Stephanie Dray

  18. I’ve often pondered that myself.

    Here is my teaser Splintered by A.G. Howard

    I have to say, I found The Handmaid’s Tale a very difficult book to read, though I am glad I did so. This is my TT this week – https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/2017/05/30/teaser-tuesday-30th-may-2017/

  21. Sheery says:

    I haven’t read a historical romance in quite some time but am enjoying this one so far; my TT for the week:http://sheeryhall.blogspot.com/2017/05/teaser-tuesday-his-wicked-reputation-by.html

  22. Cathy says:

    I love that book! I’m currently reading a fantasy novel set mostly in Medieval Ireland: The Last Days of Magic, by Mark Tompkins. Here’s a link to my teaser:
    http://petrini1.livejournal.com/338376.html

  23. Handmaid’s Tale has been on my TBR shelf so long I’ve actually lost the book. I’ll get around to it eventually.

    I’m late posting my link because I was traveling yesterday. Here it is finally: http://www.rosecityreader.com/2017/05/teaser-tuesday-girl-called-sidney-by.html
