Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
Grab your current read and 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!
This week my teaser is from pg 187 of ADDITION by Toni Jordan – Addition is an unusual romance. Grace’s whole life is defined by numbers – numbers give her a sense of being. Numbers dictate how many steps she takes, how many poppy seeds are in her cake, how many slices of zucchini she eats. She is so ruled by her obsession that she has lost the ability to live a ‘normal’ life. Life for Grace is predictable, with no room for spontaneity, but she doesn’t think her life is bad – she is so busy counting. Then she meets Seamus and slowly life changes. But is it for the better?
“…When white pills – when 22 little white pills – hit the toilet bowl, they float…When I push the button, they hesitate for a moment then huddle together in a paroxysm of fear. They shudder. They’re going down! Bracing themselves, they hurl violently clockwise before disappearing in a scream and a gurgle…”
