Teaser Tuesday: Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro


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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teasers: 



All we could see really was a dark fringe of trees, but I certainly wasn't the only one of my age to feel their presence day and night. When it got bad, it was like they cast a shadow over the whole of Hailsham; all you had to do was turn your head or move towards a window and there they'd be, looming in the distance.
Page 49 of Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro

I'm sitting here wondering who "they" are. Great teaser and I have to say I love the cover. REally made me look and try to figure out what I was seeing.

My teaser is from Shades Of Gray by LM Pruitt

I have another teaser {here}. I have a lot of fun choosing teasers from dystopian novels, because they usually have this obscure feeling that something isn't quite right... I am only reading this at my lunch times (It is for a book club meeting in 3 weeks) so I haven't gone too far, but what I have read I have liked. I have so many questions, and I can't wait to finish this novel so I an find out why things have happened the way they have!


Thank you Carrie :)


I am off to read all your teasers now :D
