Tuesday Teaser is hosted by Should Be Reading and asks you to...
1. Grab your current read.
2. Let the book fall open to a random page.
3. Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page. You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
4. Please avoid spoilers!
Through the windows, bright red strobe lights flashed across the walls accompanied by a high-pitched wailing. The sound was nagging and accusatory. It was nothing, nothing like a song.
--Bel Canto by Ann Patchett
I'm about halfway through Bel Canto and am struggling with it a bit, and trying to decide if I will finish it or not. I really enjoyed Patchett's other books I've read (Truth & Beauty, The Magician's Assistant), but this one isn't really keeping my attention. If you've read it, did you like it?
I received the Premio Dardos Award from So Many Books, So Little Time and Socrates Book Reviews. This award acknowledges the the values that every blogger shows in his or her effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values every day.
Thank you so much for the award, and I apologize for my delay in getting it posted. I have passed this one on already, so this time I will award it to all the blogs who appear in my reader!
