Teaser Tuesdays 7.13.10

Teaser Tuesdays is an interesting, fun, bookish meme, hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.

My Teaser:

'As always, the heavy curtains are drawn shut because the Monster likes her lair to be dark at all times. The old apartment smells musty, and Sera feels a moment's claustrophobia, so that she fights the urge to part the faded curtains and fling open the windows to let in much-needed air and sunlight.'

The Space Between Us by Thrity Umrigar (p.45)

Anyone can play along! If you'd like to participate, Just do the following:

*Grab your current read
*Open to a random page
*Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page (mine's longer this week, sorry!)
*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!

*And, finally, don't forget to link your post to MizB's at
Should Be Reading. If you don't have a blog, simply share your "teasers" in a comment.
