Teaser Tuesday: Station Eleven

TeaserTuesdays-ADailyRhythm3
Teaser Tuesdays
is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR (To-Be-Read) lists if they like your teasers!





And here is mine for this week:

Today's teaser is from Station Eleven, by Emily St. John Mandel. Here is the teaser; you'll find it on page 73:

"In Arthur's memories of the lake, his mother is reading a book under the trees on the shore, while his little brother splashes around with water wings in the shallows and bugs land fleetingly on the water's surface. For unknown reasons there is a naked Barbie doll buried up to her waist in the dirt on the lake road."

Teaser Tuesday

I can think of a few reasons. Although, I never had a Barbie doll. Sounds interesting. Here's my TT link: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-17E
