Tuesday teaser is a weekly bookish meme hosted by http://www.booksandabeat.com
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read.
- Open to a random page.
- Share two or three *teaser* sentences from somewhere on that page.
- Be careful not to include spoilers ~ make sure what you share doesn’t give to much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others.
Share the title and the author too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR list if they like your teasers!
This is more than a sentence or two but it cracked me up….
“Bucket had started his criminal career in Braas…There, he had gotten together with some like-minded peers and started the motorcycle club called The Violence. Bucket was the leader; he decided which newsstand was to be robbed of cigarettes next. He was the one who had chosen the name – The Violence, in English, not Swedish. And he was the one who unfortunately asked his girlfriend Isabella to sew the name of the motorcycle club onto ten newly stolen leather jackets. Isabella had never really learned to spell properly at school, not in Swedish, and certainly not in English.
The result was that Isabella sewed The Violins on the jackets instead. As the rest of the club members had had similar academic success, nobody in the group noticed the mistake.” (page 79)
