- Open to a random page
- Share one or two sentences from that page
- Avoid spoilers – Pick a sentence that doesn’t give too much away
Today’s teaser comes from He Said / She Said by Erin Kelly which is due for release towards the end of April. This is one of the next couple of books in my TBR and I’ve been excited to get to it ever since I read an extract in the Spring/Summer Buzz Book. The very kind people at Hodder & Stoughton have actually sent me a physical copy of the book so I’m really looking forward to reading a proper book, far too much recently has been read on my iPad. The teaser below is from the opening chapter.
In the mirror, I look her up and down. Her shift dress hides her curves. I’ve got my hair, the bright long hair that was the first thing Kit loved about me, the hair that he said he could see in the dark, pulled into a schoolmarm’s bun at the nape of my neck. We both look . . . demure, I suppose is the word, although no one has ever described me that way before. We are unrecognisable as the girls from the festival: the girls who painted our bodies and faces gold to whirl and howl under the moon. Those girls are gone, both dead in their different ways. A heavy door slams outside, making us both jump. She’s as nervous as I am, I realise. At last our reflections lock eyes, each silently asking the other the questions too big –too dangerous –to voice.
How did it come to this?
How did we get here?
How will it end?
