Teaser Tuesdays (12)

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 "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
Be careful not to include spoilers!
- Share the title and author, too.

Book: The Tent
Author: Margaret Atwood

"I was given a voice. That's what people say about me. I cultivated my voice, because it would be a shame to waste such a gift. I pictured this voice as a hothouse plant, something luxuriant, with glossy foliage and the word tuberous in the name, and a musky scent at night."

This isn't actually the book I'm reading right now. Sadly, I just discovered that I left the book I am reading in my locker at school. What a tragedy! So, this week's teaser is from the book I plan on reading next.

...and what an excellent teaser it is! Doesn't it make you even more eager to read it?

Sara said...

Awesome teaser! I love it, now I'll definitely have to check this one out. And I hate it when that happens (locker).

Way cool!

Here is my Teaser Tuesday :)

Adriana said...

That's a really wonderful quote.

Bookalicious Ramblings said...

Great pick! I'll be looking forward to this review - Atwood is an amazing writer!

Emidy said...

Nymeth - It does, it does! I can't wait to get started.

Sara - I was so annoyed when I got home and was trying to find my book. Ugh!

Adriana - Yes, I love it!

Bookalicious - She is. I can't get enough of her books!

The writing sounds beautiful; great teaser! I'll look forward to hearing your thoughts on this one. :D

The Book Mole said...

Very nice teaser, Emidy. I have never read Margaret Atwood, but have heard a lot about her. I look forward to your review of this book!

Emidy said...

Jenn - Don't you just love her way with words?

The Book Mole - You should pick up a book written by her. You'll probably find a new favourite author!
