Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.
- Grab your current read.
- Let the book fall open to a random page.
- Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page.
- 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!

“That precision would haunt me for many years, because Santiago Nasar had often told me that the smell of closed-in flowers had an immediate relation to death for him, and that day he repeated it to me as we went to the church. “I don’t want any flowers at my funeral,” he told me, hardly thinking that I would see to it that there weren’t any the next day.”
Chronicle of a Death Foretold by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
I love Teaser Tuesdays! 😀
