Teaser Tuesday: The Likeness ~ Tana French & Shades of Grey ~ Jasper Fforde

March 23, 2010


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!


Someone may have dealt the hand, but I picked it up off the table, I played every card and I had my reasons.” p. 10 The Likeness by Tana French



“It began with my father not wanting to see the Last Rabbit and ended with my being eaten by a carnivorous plant.” p. 1 Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde
