Teaser Tuesday: The Between




Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. I found this great weekly event via C. M. Brown.  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!
Here is my Teaser for today:

"Hilton felt he couldn’t hold his breath anymore, and the water mocked him all around. It filled his ears, his nose, and finally his mouth, and his muscles began to fail him. It was then, just as he believed his entire fifty-pound body would fill with water, that he felt an arm around his waist."
Due, Tananarive (2011-12-13). The Between (p. 6). Harper Perennial. Kindle Edition. 
This book is part of my book club at work and I am really enjoying it so far.  Hope you enjoyed the teaser and will want to read more.  Happy reading!

  2. Very intriguing!
    Maybe he's dreaming?

    1. It would seem like that right. Good guess, but he is caught in a riptide current along a beach. :D

  3. Hmmm, I wonder how he got caught into the water in the first place and who this mystery person is?

    Here's mine.

      Yeah, I don't know the answer to that. I'm still reading. ;)

    1. Yes, that's exactly what happened. No, not really. :D

  5. I wonder who saved him? You chose a very suspenseful passage.

    1. I wonder too. I have not reached the part where they state the name of his savior. :)
