Ashes by Ilsa J Bick is a suspenseful, gripping read. It’s also got me completely stressed out, so I am hopping between it and Nowhere Girl.
With no sense of smell, your memories dropped like pennies out of a ripped pocket, until the past was ashes and your parents were blanks: nothing more than the holes in Swiss cheese.
Nowhere Girl by A. J. Paquette is a riveting read, too! Young Luchi has lived her entire life in a Thai prison, but after her mother’s death, she has to venture into a scary new world beyond the prison walls that have always protected her. I love the prose and how beautifully the words fit together.
For the first time in days, I hear voices. I’m curled over on myself, pressed into my cramped hiding spot, clinging to the dark like it’s a life jacket.
The voices move closer.
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!
