Teaser Tuesday Nov. 18, 2014

This is a fun, weekly prompt that I lucked onto some time ago and I’m trying to be more consistent in my posting so I wanted to include it again, and hopefully will continue to do so moving forward. You can click the image above to get to the original site or use the following link:

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!

I’m currently reading The Family Fang by Kevin Wilson. This excerpt is from page 120:

“Okay,” Mr. Fang said, sweeping the tray off the table, dumping it into the trash. “This little experiment is over. Let’s go home.”

I’m currently reading Fluke, by Christopher Moore. If you’ve never read his novels you’re truly missing out on one of the funniest dark humorists of our time.

p.211 After the left, Clay turned to the two surfers. Thirty years of working with the best scientists and divers in the world, and this was what it came down to: two stoner kids.

My teaser is from This Magnificent Desolation, by Thomas O’Malley.

Duncan knows that Joshua is staring at the ceiling in this moment, just as he is. The anxiety of this time in the morning, when- despite the quiet, the stillness- the weight of the day seems to press heavily, burgeoning upon the nerves, a day when so many things can go wrong and this hour when all he has is the time and space to think of them.

“What was looking over the hedge should be described at this point. What Anathema saw was, she said later, something like a prepubescent Greek god.”
