Tuesday Teaser

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 second teaser from The Silver Branch:

"Would it not be better to be free?"

"Free? I was born a slave, the son of a slave. What is 'Free' to me, but being masterless--and maybe hungry?"

From The Silver Branch, by Rosemary Sutcliff, p 175

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.

"When he throws out words like transformer, fuel cells, and electric generator motor, I have no idea what he is talking about!"

"Even an occasional five or ten minutes to regain your composure is enough to help you maintain your sanity, but sometimes more is necessary."

Homeschooling for the Rest of Us by Sonya Haskins, page 38.

Transformer, fuel cells and electric generator motors? I have no idea what he's talking about either! LOL! Thanks for sharing, Rachel!

"few angles tread these sorrow soaked floors.
Her smile angular, as though she trained with misguided pirate on rules of greeting other souls with complacency (5-8)"

So Much For The Trust Fall by Jenifer E. Hudgens, pg 23
