Teaser Tuesday – 27 September 2016

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by the Should Be Reading blog.


If you fancy joining in, here’s how…
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two teaser sentences from somewhere on that page
• Share the title and author so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!

Yesterday I started reading the new novel by The Room author Emma Donoghue, which is called The Wonder. I was sucked in from the very first page and am struggling to put it down! It tells the story of a nurse, Lib, who is sent to Ireland in the 1850s to observe a young girl who has stopped eating for four months, but is still fit and healthy. Is everything as it seems or is there a miracle at work?

Here are my two teaser sentences taken at random from the first chapter..

617s7zmziql-_ac_us160_“Lib looked around. Until today, it must have been child’s play for Anna to sneak food from the kitchen next door in the night or for one of the adults to bring it in without the others hearing a thing.”

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