Teaser Tuesday: The Book of Lost Threads by Tess Evans


The Book of Lost Threads by Tess Evans

This is Australian author Tess Evan's debut novel. I am about a quarter of the way through it and I am definitely enjoying it. It is a lot easier and more light hearted than my normal reads, my initial reaction is that it almost borders on chick lit (I think... although I haven't read any chick lit so I wouldn't rely on that comparison at all). Anyway, here is the teaser:
"In the days that followed, Linsey's amorphous need for love took shape. A tiny phantom hand gripped her finger and drew her on to seek information, which she diligently garnered before making her approach".
This little section is quite relevant to how the story unfolds so I thought it would be appropriate to share with everyone.




Tuesday Teaser is great meme hosted by Should Be Reading and is a great way to find out about new books.Here are the guidelines: 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!
