Teaser Tuesday-Now is the Time for Running and The Boy at the End of the World


It looks like it’s going to be another scorching week! I am so glad that I have some great reads to help keep me cool.  I am having such a hard time with the humidity this year, and I feel like all of my energy has just been sucked right out of my body.  Ugh!  I hope you stay cool wherever you are!

I just finished Now is the Time for Running by Michael Williams, and I couldn’t put the book down. 


I don’t understand but give him more money to pay for the inflation anyway. I don’t think Mr. Singh would cheat me, but how can something cost three times more in a month’s time?


The Boy at the End of the World by Greg van Eekhout starts with a bang, and it hasn’t slowed down since the first page!

Without any other humans alive, what meaning did his own life have?

He was humanity’s dying breath.

But at least he was still breathing.

He decided he would keep breathing as long as he could.

He sat beside a rock and began sharpening his spear.

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 too much away! 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 teasers!
