Teaser Tuesday: 11-11-08 : Mosquito


Should Be Reading - Miz B - hosts this weekly event. We throw out a couple of sentences from our current read to entice you to read the book!


From Mosquito by Roma Tearne, page 13:
Often, before the monsoon broke, the sea was like a mirror. The sky appeared joined to it with barely a seam, there was a faint vibration of thunder and along the shoreline the air hung in hazy folds, suspended between land, and sea, and sky. In a few hours the heat would spread insidiously, hovering with the mosquitoes and the spiders that waited motionless and lethargic, trapped by their own clammy inertia.

There are always mosquitoes where I live and I'm constantly getting bitten! I hate hate HATE mosquitoes, and it makes me really curious about this book.

That was a wonderfully descriptive paragraph - I almost felt like I could have been there.
