This Challenge is Tease at Random | Claire @ Project TBR
I love taking part in the Teaser Tuesday meme, but I've noticed how sometimes the teasers can be very different to what the book is actually like. So when April and Rebecca gave me the chance to create my own challenge I thought of this and immediately started to wonder what would happen if teasers were taken throughout a book - would they be close to the real story, or would it create a whole new one?
For this challenge I would like you to tease me at random from your current read. All you need to do is to divide your book roughly into thirds and then randomly select two sentences from each third (so six in total) and put them together to give a good tease.
Love the idea of this challenge but I will say that it did spoil some things for me since I had to look ahead in my book! In future I'd only do this with a book I've already read!
Mine is from The Lantern by Deborah Lawrenson taken from an ARC so the finished product may differ slightly.
2. "No, they said, these were human bones. As time came juddering to a sudden stop, it was the small details I noticed: the shard of green printed pottery up from the recently moved soil; the mud caked on a man's boot; the black rime on another worker's fingernails; knobbles of rubble; the broken piece of brick; the individual blades of grass. Piano notes ascended, Dom too intent on his own sounds to register that others had been silenced." pg 209
3 "Because something had happened-was happening-that made me need him, quietly, more than ever. It was dreadful timing, and I wasn't absolutely sure, but all the signs were there." pg 278
