Tuesday’s Teaser – Everything But The Truth

 

Teaser Tuesday is a book meme I found via Google I believe it was originally hosted on Should Be Reading but I don’t think it’s still active. Still I liked the idea so I’m going to keep it going on my blog.

The rules are simple:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share one or two sentences from that page
  • Avoid spoilers – Pick a sentence that doesn’t give too much away

Today’s teaser comes from Everything But The Truth by Gillian McAllister. The teaser is from about halfway through the book, I copied it out of my eBook when I started reading and as I’m writing this on Monday night I’ve just finished it – I really enjoyed it. My next task will be to get the review written!

“The only time I’d ever stayed up all night was when I was paid to do it, the splintered on-call hours rushing by, distorted and confusing. This was totally different. The hours moved like honey dripping from a spoon. It was two o’clock for ages, and then three. Jack snored next to me, and all the while, I looked at him. And the worst of it was that I lay there, next to him, and my only thought, at the end of the night, was: so you are an excellent liar, after all. All those hopes I’d had. All those times I’d rationalized his behaviour. Every inconsistency I’d spotted and dismissed as paranoia. I’d been totally wrong. Blind..”

Does this sound like something you’d want to read? Share a teaser from your own current read leave me a comment below!
