teaser tuesday (72)

Tuesday, December 27, 2011 |

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

Grab your current read and let it fall open to a random page (or if you're reading on an electronic device, pick a random number and scroll to that section). Post two or more sentences from that page, along with the book title and author. Share your find with others in the comments at Should Be Reading, and don't give anything vital away!

“I closed my eyes tight. Someday I would be ready to open my Survival Kit, but not yet. It was too soon.

‘Rose? Where are you?’ Dad’s voice rang through the now empty house, causing me to jump, startled. I’d forgotten I wasn’t alone, that my father and brother – what was left of my family – were just down the hall.”

p. 7 of Donna Freitas’s The Survival Kit

Great teasers. They made me wonder what the Survival Kit was for and what had happened to the rest of her family.

Good teaser, even though I have no idea what it's about.

I love the sound of this book. I haven't heard of this book before but I'm definitely going to add it to my TBR now.

What a gorgeous cover -- and this excerpt definitely gets me thinking about grief and what the "survival kit" could be.
