Teaser Tuesdays: The Mask Diaries


The Mask Diaries by Abhinav Goel is one of my more interesting reads of late. I have been reading it over the weekend, and am quite intrigued by what seems to be a very unusual story about a dysfunctional father and son relationship. Here’s a teaser:

Those sheets of paper, on which you so lovingly drew sketches of our little cottage; have become moist with our tears. Mine, of guilt; yours, of betrayal

The Mask Diaries – Abhinav Goel

Definitely a dramatic start to a book, don’t you think?

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Ambrosia at The Purple Booker. 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!

      @jamesviscosi:disqus the book kind of deals with a split personality thing. So, you can figure it out from there 🙂

  • For some reason I can’t comment on your latest post but I wanted to say that I love love LOVE Snubnose’s latest piece of art. She’s so talented! I love seeing all her work! Give her a hug from the internet.

    Yes, that’s quite the opening. I’m curious how the title represents the story.
