Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! All you have to do is grab the book you’re currently reading, open to a random page and share two sentences from that page. But make sure you don’t share any spoilers!
This week’s two sentence teaser comes from a book I’ve been beyond excited to read since I got it into my hot little hands. The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton is, aesthetically speaking, glorious. I’ll save my gushing over it for my review when I get to it in a couple of weeks, but I will say that my edition of it is extra super special and I love looking at it.
I’ve not read much yet, but I’m enjoying it so far. The writing is lovely and I can’t wait to see how the story develops – from the little I’ve read, I’m expecting nothing less than amazing from the rest of the book. And now for the sentences:
“She listens, desolate, a hairline crack of moonlight glinting over painted hare and rotten pomegranate. It is a deceptive quiet, as if the house itself is breathing.”
