Hosted by A Daily Rhythm, Teaser Tuesday is a bookish meme meant to highlight passages from books you are currently reading.
Here are the rules (as described by A Daily Rhythm):
- 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!
My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry by Frederik Bachman is totally not what I was expecting but I am absolutely loving it. It’s such a mix of genres and really speaks to the heart of storytelling. I just couldn’t help but highlight it on the blog!
So, check out this teaser:
Only after she’d smacked Elsa in the face, ripped her scarf, and thrown it in a toilet had Elsa grown conscious of the fact that the girl hadn’t read Harry Potter at all. She knew who he was, of course, everyone knows who Harry Potter is, but she hadn’t read the books. She didn’t even understand the most basic symbolism of a Gryffindor scarf. And while Elsa didn’t want to be elitist or anything, how could one be expected to reason with a person like that?
I mean, it’s got Harry Potter references for goodness sake! So, does My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry sound like something you’d want to pick up? Have you already read this title? Let me know all your thoughts in the comments below!
