Teaser Tuesday! (35)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • 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 away too much! 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 teaser!


Illuminated by Erica Orloff

"That night, I dreamed of Heloise.
She was young - my age - but already a nun, dressed in a white habit, and sitting at a plain wooden desk beneath a small window composing a letter." p. 190

I'm mere chapters away from finishing this one. Unfortunately it hasn't been everything I thought it would be but I'm intrigued enough by the mystery and mythology that I've pushed through in order to finish it.

What teaser have you shared?
