It’s Tuesday, Where Are You? / Teaser Tuesdays

It’s Tuesday, Where Are You?

I’m in Calcutta in 1838, on board the Ibis. The onset of the Opium Wars has prevented her being refitted to transport drugs, so she’s reverted to her old use - as a slaver.

Sea of Poppies by Amitav Ghosh.

Teaser Tuesdays TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • 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!

Her thoughts were now all for the future and how they would manage without her husband’s monthly pay. In thinking of this, the light dimmed in her eyes; even though nightfall was still a couple of hours away, she felt as if she were already enveloped in darkness.

From Sea of Poppies by Amitav Ghosh, p. 91.

  3. How worrying for her! What will she do? My teaser is from Naamah's Curse by Jacqueline Carey.

  4. "She looked toward the courtyard, obeying a habit of her solitude and then she saw Jose Arcadio Buendia, soaking wet and sad in the rain and much older than when he had died."
    One Hundred Years of Solitude
    by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
