Teaser Tuesdays and It's Tuesday...Where are you?


I'm teaching English in a remote city in Japan. 
My neighbors are nosy, my students are uninspired,
and I'm wondering if I made a mistake rooming with my girlfriend!!
_______________________________________________________________


TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:
Grab your current read.
Let the book fall open to a random page.
Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
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!
Please avoid spoilers!

  


"In Japan we eat fish like this," Kobayashi-sensei says, popping a whole sardine into his mouth. I smile dutifully, trying to tune out the crunch of tiny bones being ground to a paste.

  17. I want to read this for the cover and the fact that it's set in Japan alone.

  18. I'm in England this week. This is what I'm reading:

    "That bitch knew everything. She had been in on it from the start."

    I cannot put down the book and I wish to take a day off just to read it. It's a spoiler so anyone interested can contact me about the title. :)
