Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Purple Booker.
It is very easy to play along:
• Grab your current read and open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!
• Share the title & author, too, so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Here are my “teasers” :
“You want to know where she has gone and whether I had something to do with it. Of course I did. We both know that already. I’m trying to understand how I ended up here. I don’t know why exactly, but I do know it all started in the change rooms.”
From the novel:
The Spite Game by Anna Snoekstra
Expected publication: October 30th 2018 by Mira Books
Everyone does bad things when no one is watching
Mercilessly bullied in high school, Ava knows she needs to put the past behind her and move on, but she can’t—not until she’s exacted precise, catastrophic revenge on the people who hurt her the most.
First, she watches Saanvi. Flawlessly chic and working hard at a top architectural firm, Saanvi has it all together on the surface. But everyone does bad things when they think no one is watching and Ava only wants what’s fair—to destroy Saanvi’s life the way her own was destroyed.
Next, she watches Cass. She’s there as Cass tries on wedding dresses, she’s there when Cass picks out a cake, she’s there when Cass betrays her fiancé. She’s the reason Cass’s entire future comes crashing down.
Finally, Ava watches Mel. Mel was always the ringleader and if anyone has to pay, it’s her. But one tiny slipup and Ava realizes the truth: Mel knows she’s being watched, and she’s ready to play Ava’s games to the bitter end.
I really enjoyed one of this author’s previous novels, “Only Daughter“. After reading the description for this novel, I knew it was one I had to read. I’ve only read a few pages, but so far I am enjoying it. I look forward to reading more!
