This week, I'm reading Peaches for Father Francis by Joanne Harris. Many of you remember her from the book and movie Chocolat. This book is about the same characters and is getting good reviews from lots of my blogging friends. So far I'm loving it.
Here's the intro:
Someone once told me that, in France alone, a quarter of a million letters are delivered every year to the dead. What she didn't tell is that sometimes the dead write back.
And that is the entire first chapter.
Also this week is Teaser Tuesdays.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!
Open to a random page of your current read and share a teaser sentence from somewhere on that page.
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!
Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers.
Here's mine from page 84:
The cards are bad. I should put them away, I know. What am I doing here, anyhow? I almost wish I had never opened Armande's letter; that Roux had never delivered it; that he had thrown it into the Seine.
What do you think?
