Teaser Tuesdays #186 – August 28th: The Girl Who Saved The King Of Sweden

TEASER TUESDAYS is a weekly book meme hosted at The Purple Booker. To participate, just open the book you are currently reading to a random page, and choose two ‘teaser’ sentences from somewhere on that page. (no spoilers!)

I’m currently reading book number nine of my August TBR and probably the last title before the N.E.W.T. readathon madness begins… I’ve been meaning to read The Girl Who Saved The King Of Sweden for a long time, mostly because I’m a huge fan of The Hunderd-Year-Old Man. I know his books and humor are not for everyone, but there is just something about his writing that hits the mark for me (although I admit not always). Fingers crossed this one will be another winner!

My teaser (1%):

“The twenty-three-year old stepped into the latrine office and couldn’t help immediately complaining about the smell. There, on the other side of the desk, sat the latrine manager, the one who was about to be dismissed. And next to him was a little girl who, to the assistant’s surprise, opened her mouth and replied that this was indeed an unfortunate quality of shit – it smelled.”

What are you reading right now?

    • The South African setting and POV was without doubt the most interesting part, and I like how the author uses political and social historical references in the book. That said, I can’t say it was my favorite…
