Teaser Tuesdays – 1/15/2013

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by 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 — but watch out for spoilers!  •Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers! 

My teaser for this week is from The Cranes Dance by Meg Howrey:

Page 258:

I looked at the topography of Mara’s bent-over back. Stone footpaths of vertebrae. Cresting ribs like sand dunes. Shoulder-blade cliffs. When she pulled at the tape around her big toe, the muscles of her back volcanoed new islands into the valley.

Here goes, trying something new again! I just stumbled across this weekly event, and thought I’d give it a whirl.

My teaser for this week is from Mariana by Susanna Kearsley:

Page 78:

It is difficult to describe the sensation of sliding backwards in time, of exchanging one reality for another that is just as real, just as tangible, just as familiar. I should not, perhaps, refer to it as “sliding,” since in actual fact I was thrust — abruptly and without warning — from one time to the next, as though I had walked through some shifting, invisible portal dividing the present from the past.
