Teaser Tuesday 10


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Should Be Reading.

The idea is to:
Grab the book you are currently reading
Open it up to a random page
Share two Teaser sentences
Give the name and author of said book
And remember No Spoilers!

I just finished Clarity last night (review coming soon) and have moved on to The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta. I cannot even begin to tell you how happy I am to be finally reading this book. I feel like I have been waiting for it for forever. I love Melina Marchetta, Jellicoe Road and Saving Francesca are two of my all time favourite books. If you haven't read them I highly recommend that you do.

"After everyone's eaten and the men are outside playing cards in the tiny courtyard, Abe's mother dangles a necklace over Gerorgie's belly to see if it's a boy or a girl. As she sits surrounded by the women and her goddaughters, who watch with the widest of eyes, she is suddenly overcome with emotion."

Page 90.

Thomas Mackee wants oblivion. Wants to forget parents who leave and friends he used to care about and a string of one-night stands, and favourite uncles being blown to smithereens on their way to work on the other side of the world.

But when his flatmates turn him out of the house, Tom moves in with his single, pregnant aunt, Georgie. And starts working at the Union pub with his former friends. And winds up living with his grieving father again. And remembers how he abandoned Tara Finke two years ago, after his uncle's death.

And in a year when everything's broken, Tom realises that his family and friends need him to help put the pieces back together as much as he needs them.

That's all for now.

  9. that's a great teaser. I haven't read any of these books before. You mentioned a few other titles is this a series?

  10. Saving Francessca takes place 5 years before The Piper's Son. It involves some of the same characters but it's not really a series. You don't have to have read Saving Francessca to understand The Piper's Son.

  25. Thanks for commenting on my TT! I'm glad that Demonglass is on your TBR and that my teaser made you more excited to read it!

    I actually haven't read Melina Marchetta before (*shame*), but I've heard of the amazingness that is Jellicoe Road and plan to do so someday...my TBR is so big. *sighs* I love that this teaser really gives you a feel for Marchetta's writing style and a sample of what is to come!
