Teaser Tuesday and First Chapter, First Paragraph Tuesday Intro

First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros is hosted by Bibliophile by the Sea, where we share the first paragraph of a book we are reading. Today's intro is from a book I just finished, Seed by Lisa Heathfield. This was an amazing book and this first time author blew me away with her writing. 


"Here, crouched beside the toilet, I'm terrified I'm dying. My stomach must be bleeding, or my liver, or my kidneys. Something inside me has somehow got cut."


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jenn at A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

 Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Again, I am using a teaser from Seed. Can you tell that I am trying desperately to push this book on everyone?

"Every part of me wants to scream. Every nerve, every cell, wants to run up the steps and bang on that wooden door and scream until my lungs burn. But I don't. I know that Nature is watching me. And Papa S. will know. So I stand and stare at the flickering earth walls, with their overwhelming dank smell. I stand and stare at the mud above me and around me and under me. I stand and listen to the sound of my own breathing. Surely she will be back soon?"

Do these teasers make you want to read more? You can also read my full review here.
