Teaser Tuesdays and Tuesday Intros

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!

Here’s mine from a novel just finished:

You should stop squirming and struggling. Finding yourself confronted by an unpleasant fact…you’re like a woman who conceals a stain on a table-cover by putting an ash-tray. Ineffectual, because someone is sure to move the ash-tray. (64)

First Chapter-First Paragraph Tuesday Intros is a weekly meme hosted by Bibliophile By the Sea where we share the first paragraph of our current read.

Here’s mine:

Above all, I have a score to settle. I forget nothing, forgive no one.

  1. Yes, those intertwined figures make it arresting. It is the first time I am reading Arun Joshi. The story so far is interesting. Have you read anything of his? Have heard that 'The Curious Case of Billy Biswas' is pretty good.

  2. No fear Prashant, I too am not very fond of ILE. Haven't read any Rushdie except for Midnight's Children. Vikram Seth, Mulk Raj Anand, and Amitav Ghosh are my favourites.
