Teaser Tuesdays

Quote a couple of spoiler-free sentences from the book you’re reading to tempt others.

"All of this he remembers and can see as plain as day - he just can't say when it happened. Like a photograph that cannot be placed anywhere specific in the album".
The Wilderness by Samantha Harvey

Excellent extract. I do want to read that at some point!

Paperback Reader said...

Thank you, Verity. I thought that the extract aptly summed up the novel's premise. I am only halfway through reading it but I love it and think it is a contender already for my favourite book of the year, so far.

Darlene said...

Oh, that sounds intriguing! Definitely makes me want to know what happened.

JoAnn said...

Wonderful teaser...I'm going to look this book up right now.

Darlene & JoAnn, so far it is really good and I definitely recommend it! But that is so far.
