Teaser Tuesday

• Grab your current read.
• Let the book fall open to a random page.
• Share with us two "teaser" sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
• You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from. That way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
Please avoid spoilers!

A Castle in Romanga by
Igor Štiks
Page 37 - He threw his waistcoat onto the chair, left his hat on the sofa, shoved his boots up to the door of the oak armoire, and listlessly pushed his trousers to the edge of the bed. He sank onto the bed with his full weight, eagerly awaiting the first rays of the peaceful afternoon sun, which would sweep his emerging sadness away, or so he was hoping when, suddenly, he found himself on a horse next to Mardi, embracing him forcefully despite the impediments of the quiver and standard with its familiar lynx.

An American Tragedy by Thomas Dreiser
Page 383 - Unfortunately for this, she was compelled, to her terror and dismay, to enter the factory one morning, just about this time, her face a symbol of even graver and more terrifying doubts and fears than any that had hitherto assailed her. For now, in addition to her own troubled conclusions in regard to Clyde, there had sprung up over night the dark and constraining fear that even this might not now be possible, for the present at least.
