It’s late in the day, sure, but technically still Tuesday! I’ve been busy all day at work, then baking biscotti – for the record, biscotti is hard, and you’d do best to allow yourself a screw-up batch before you bake the proper ones you plan on eating/giving. My first batch flopped, but these ones are sufficiently delicious. The 2nd last tray is just about to come out of the oven, and then I will be curling up and trying to finish the below book. I’m loving it.

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!

“So I guess you could say Neel owes me a few favours, except that so many favours have passed between us now that they are no longer distinguishable as individual acts, just a bright haze of loyalty. Our friendship is a nebula.”
