Teaser Tuesday – 21 February 2017

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!

I’m currently reading A Dictionary of Mutual Understanding by Jackie Copleton, which is set in Japan and is narrated by a woman who lost her daughter and grandson in the horrific bombing of Nagasaki in 1945. I’ve read about 40 pages so far, and it’s promising to be a very good read – although there have been some harrowing scenes.

Here are my two teaser sentences taken at random from p24…

To some, the explosion was like a giant pulsating chrysanthemum, a thousand boiling clouds of purple and cream and pink, or it was a giant tree ablaze, shooting high into the sky, or yes, it was shaped like a mushroom, collapsing into itself and then rising away.”

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