Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• 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 month, I am trying to work through my TBR pile, as part of the Take Control of Your TBR Pile Challenge, hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Today's teaser is from a book I've had sitting on my shelves for about three years now, since finding a copy on the bargain shelves at our local Books-A-Million.
Experience had taught him that he fared best on his own. Yet he seemed doomed to go through life picking up followers, the way a long cloak picked up troublesome burrs. "First, I must go see if any of the others are still alive."
