Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. You know the rules: grab your current read, open to a random page and share a two sentence teaser with us (no spoilers!). Be sure to tell us about the book, so we can add it to our TBR list!
This week, my Teaser is from The Hypnotist by M.J. Rose. If you missed my guest post from Rose last week, definitely go back and check it out — it’s pretty awesome! And come back on Thursday, when my review goes up.
This week’s Teaser (work has kept me very busy and I haven’t had much time for reading) comes from one of my favorite characters in the novel, Ali Samimi. He works at the Iranian embassy and he really wants to stay in the US:
“He’d started out as an awkward rube when he’d first come to New York three years ago, but the last woman he had bedded had called him debonair. He’d had to look up the word but was inordinately pleased by what it meant.”
I think he’s kind of adorable and I really want him to do the right thing when the time comes.
What’s teasing YOU this week?
