Teaser Tuesdays – September 6, 2011


The Leftovers by Tom Perrotta

What mostly struck her, reading the files, was how deceptively normal things seemed in Mapleton. Most people just put on blinders and went about their trivial business, as if the Rapture had never even happened, as if they expected the world to last forever.

The Way We Fall by Megan Crewe

Our virus is a lot smarter than the ones you see in zombie movies. It doesn’t make its victims stagger around slobbering and moaning so anyone in their right mind would run the other way. It gets you cozying up to people so you can cough and sneeze it right into their faces.

      Stephanie – I’m really enjoying The Way We Fall – but my review won’t come out until the beginning of next year, as I’m reading a very, very early galley.
