Teaser Tuesdays: Aiding and Abetting

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading.

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!

Aiding and Abetting by Muriel Spark p. 58

“People who want to write books do so because they feel it to be the easiest thing they can do. They can read and write, they can afford any of the instruments of book writing such as pens, paper, computers, tape recorders, and generally by the time they have reached this decision, they have had a simple education.”

Sadly, a lot of people think they can write a book, but they cannot and should not. And Ms. Sparks perfectly puts her finger on why they think they can.

I suppose, but if everyone felt that way, what a sad world it would be. No one would ever try for fear of falling short of Tolstoy. Here's Mine

I wish it were actually that easy to write books. My teasers this week are from Carousel Sun by Sharon Lee and Cress by Marissa Meyer. Happy reading!
