Teaser Tuesday: The Better Part of Darkness

I’m a little late, but anytime is better than never, right?

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Here’s the rules:

  1. Get the book you’re currently reading
  2. Open it to any random page
  3. Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page (Be courteous of your readers
  4. You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

This week’s teaser is: The Better Part of Darkness by Kelly Gay, which comes out November 24th.

From page 83:

He had such an easy, confident swagger. “Well, seeing as you’ve had the day from hell…You sure you’re up for this? I mean, I don’t want you poofing out on me in the middle of things.”

“It’s pooping.” His eyes went wide. Okay, that didn’t sound right. “The phrase, it’s called pooping out, not – ” The corner of his mouth started twitching, and his eyes glistened. I smacked his arm. “Damn it, Hank!”

From page 252:

Tremors weakened my limbs. I never thought I’d find the sight of Will Garrity eerie and repugnant. I never thought he’d go this far. The reality of what he’d done began to sink in and made my eyes sting.

Yeah, I better stop now. Just from these two passages, I’m itching to pick this up. I’ve promised myself no more books until I am caught up on reviews. Tricksey Teaser Tuesday…

I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.


  1. Oh my, I like the byplay with these characters. I know what you mean about getting distracted – I’ve got a couple of quick writing projects I should be working on but keep getting distracted by the blogs!

    If you want to get distracted a little more, I have my Tuesday Teaser up and it features rippling abs.
