Since this is one of those rare books that I read after watching the movie (a long time after, in this case; I hadn't even bothered to investigate and find out there was a book, and only ran across it accidentally), I'm afraid I must award it the dubious honour of receiving this piece of flair that I swiped from Facebook. As usual, the book was much better than the movie. I'm going to keep this flair around and give it out more often, I think.
- 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
