Teaser Tuesday: May 10, 2016

Hello!

It’s Teaser Tuesday!

This fun bookish meme is hosted by MizB at Books And A Beat. The rules are pretty simple: Grab your current read, open a random page, and pick two teaser, non-spoilery sentences to share from that page.

Here’s mine for this week:

“We are a flawed, weak species, he gently reminds us in these pages, focusing his attention, clearly and without sentiment, on those who will stoop low, those who will stop at nothing. What makes us care for such frequently pathetic characters is that they, like most of the rest of us, are strivers, driven by hopes for a slightly better life.” malgudi days

It’s Bout of Books, BEA, and Book Con week! Unfortunately, I’m not going to BEA, but I’m gate-crashing a blogger happy hour tomorrow, where I will get to fangirl over my many twitter/blogging idols! I can’t wait! I still have not planned my Book Con agenda, hopefully that should happen today. Bout of Books is going okay, I read for about 5.5 hours yesterday, but I’ve already gotten a couple of hours in today (gotta love audiobooks) so I’m off to a good start. I’ll catch ya guys later!

  1. Read this as part of school curriculum – it was a summer holiday reading homework, if I remember correctly. I liked it but don’t remember too much about the book. Have to pick it up for a reread.

    Btw, love your blog and your reviews, and I am following you now.
