Tuesday Teaser

After an extended holiday break, Tuesday Teaser is back! If you're new to my blog, Tuesday Teaser is a weekly bookish meme (rhymes with “cream"), hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. (I’ve borrowed it from LDS Women’s Book Review.) Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share at least 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!


I'm adapting the rules slightly. I'll be quoting some random lines from the last chapter I read before I post a teaser. I'm a slow reader, so you may get multiple teasers per book. Here's my teaser from By Heart and Compass:

"I'm pretty sure what it is," he said to himself, glancing down at the stone in wonder 
before returning to her with a glimmer of anger. "You knew this was a diamond?" 



Lacey nodded again, her heart hammering in her chest.  

"You didn't think I would find that interesting?" 

From By Heart and Compass (e-book), by Danielle Thorne, p 84

If you'd like to share a teaser from a book you're currently reading, I'd love you to do so in the comment section. And you don't even have to share it on a Tuesday! Be sure to include the title, author, and page number in case others would like to check out the book you're reading, too.

From Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins...

"Everyone knows I have a scar here," I say sullenly.

Eyes downcast, with mechanical movements, they follow me through the line, acceping bowls of grayish fish and okra stew and cups of water.

From page 18 of HUMANLY SPEAKING; poetry by Linda Swift:

"You turned Lot’s wife to a pillar of salt when she looked back against Your orders,while Lot meandered on his merry way without even a slap on the wrist?
Is it not true what they say
about sauce for the goose and the gander?"
