Tuesday Teaser on Thursday

It's been a couple of weeks since I shared a Tuesday Teaser because I've been running various blog hops over the last two Tuesdays. But I didn't want another week to go completely by, so I decided to share a Tuesday Teaser with you on Thursday this week!

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 a teaser from Dearly Departed:

"If you get caught, I'll make it up to you," Ida Mae promised.

"How can you make up something like jail? That would take more than a pan of brownies, Ida Mae."

From Dearly Departed, by Tristi Pinkston, p 193

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.
