Teaser Tuesday 8-31



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • 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!
The Things They CarriedMine comes from The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien. pg 20

"They carried all the emotional baggage of men who might die. Grief, terror, love, longing- these were intangibles, but the intangibles had their own mass and specific gravity, they had tangible weight."


 Really good book so far. I keep picking it up thinking I'll just read a chapter or two and then end up reading for an hour or two.

That's definitely the mark of a good book when you keep thinking about it.

I have heard good things about this book. I don't really read a lot set in this period.

My teaser this week is quite action packed, although not in quite the same way as your book. It's from Frostbitten by Kelly Armstrong.
