Teaser Tuesday (#1)

Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday is a meme held by MizB at Should Be Reading.  Here, bloggers take a couple of "teaser" sentences from the book that they are currently reading and post them to the blog!

My teaser this week comes from The Naming by Alison Croggon

"Maerad was still to young to have given up hope of escape, although as she approached adulthood and began to better understand her own limitations, she understood it to be a childish dream.  Freedom was a fantasy she gnawed obsessively in her few moments of leisure, like an old bone with just a trace of meat, and like all illusions, it left her hungrier than before, only more keenly aware of how her soul starved within her, its wings wasting with the despair of disuse."  -Page 2

Guys.  HOW FREAKING BEAUTIFUL IS THAT?!  I have fallen in love with Croggon's writing. Enough said.
