teaser tuesday (45)

It's Teaser Tuesday, a bookish blog meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Here's how it works:


Grab your current read and let it fall open to a random page. Post two (or more) sentences from that page, along with the title and author. Don’t give anything vital away!


“Whether she’s fine-tuning, or mending and discussing, Madeleine likes tinkering with people’s hearts. I don’t feel such an oddity with my clock-work heart when I hear a client complaining about his rusty spine.”


-p. 9 of Mathias Malzieu’s The Boy with the Cuckoo-Clock Heart

They are both pretty ominous! Her driving skills do sound pretty bad though. No chance I'd be getting in the car with her!
