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!
This week’s teaser comes from my first ever Cindy Pon book and I’m already loving it. Set in a futuristic Taipei where climate change ravages the globe, Want is already action packed with excellent worldbuilding. Check out this teaser:
The mountain breeze rustled the leaves around us, and the birds sang deep within the jungle’s thicket. When we were done, the you girl’s lips were leached of color, and wisps of black hair that had escaped from her ponytail clung to her dam neck.
And here’s another:
I angled the basket, and her hand grazed over the tomatoes and cucumbers, touching them as if they were gems instead of meager crops.
Hopefully these quotes entice you to pick this one up!
Are you excited for this Cindy Pon book? Already read Want?
