I’ve not done this for such a long time, but I saw a few other posts today and felt inspired. I’m currently reading A Perfectly Good Family by Lionel Shriver, which is the fourth Shriver novel I’ve read, and which I’m enjoying so far. The premise is simple but really interesting – three very different siblings come together after the death of their mother and try and work out how to settle the estate. All three of them are pretty annoying frankly,which can be a bit of a trademark of Shriver’s novels!

Here are my two teaser sentences taken at random from chapter 2…

51WR9yK1X0L._SX325_BO1,204,203,200_“If I were to assert that my younger brother had never left home at the age of thirty-one, he would object. Ten years before, he’d refurbished the top floor into an independent flat; he liked to regard the fact that his address tags still read “309 Blount Street” and his zip code hadn’t changed since he was two as mere coincidence.”

If you’ve published a teaser today, feel free to link to it here!
