Teaser Tuesday


HOST


* Grab your current read.
* Let the book fall open to a random page.
* Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
* You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from…that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given.
* Please avoid spoilers!

When Anna awoke the house was dark and silent and, feeling cold and disoriented, it took her a moment to remember where she was. Then relief washed over her when she realized that she was home. Really home.

~ River's Song - Melody Carlson (TOURS AUGUST 2)
