I was all set to hit post on Tuesday but I was all-excited about the Man Utd game that didn't go the way I hoped it was destined to go. Now, I hate football... and I will until Saturday's fixture against West Ham. I also follow the cricket, England were trying to play in New Zealand - I think it's a shame the Kiwi team didn't let them have a proper turn, so far. This has not been a good week.
Thank goodness for reading and writing - I like both of them.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
Anyone can play along:
• 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 and the author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Once is about a boy called Felix.
Once it was 1942, and Felix had to pretend he was a catholic orphan when in fact he was Jewish – and a little confused at how much the world he knew was changing.
Once is a harrowing and emotional tale about a hopeful, if naïve, little boy.
Once Felix couldn’t imagine the depths of evil that shadowed the world but, well, it never entered his head that what he was experiencing was worse than a lot of misunderstandings.
pg 149 This is why Once was followed by Then
“You know when you jump off a moving train and Nazis shoot at you with machine guns and you see sharp tree trunks coming at you and then you hit the ground so hard you feel like you’ve smashed your head open and bullets have gone through your chest and you don’t survive even though you prayed to God, Mary, the Pope and Richmal Compton?
That’s what happened to poor Chaya”
