[Teaser Tuesdays] Water For Elephants



Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two "teaser" sentences from that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! You don't want to ruin the book for others!
* Share the title and author so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!

‘So, do you want to have breakfast in the dining room this morning, or would you like me to bring you something here?’ she asks, wrapping the cuff around my arm and inflating it.

‘I don’t want breakfast'.’

‘Come now, Mr Jankowski,’ she says, pressing a stethoscope to the inside of my elbow and watching the gauge. ‘You’ve got to keep your strength up.’

I try to catch side of her name tag. ‘What for? So I can run a marathon?’

He does sound like a character! How are you enjoying the novel? I know it is very popular right now so I'm wondering if it's as good as people are saying.

Very good teaser. I will check it out. Looking at all those teassers only makes my tbr pile longer! So many books, so less time to read, so less space to keep!
