Tuesday Teaser on Thursday

Here's a belated Tuesday Teaser for you on Thursday!

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. Here's a teaser from Daughter of Helaman, by Misty Moncur:

As I loaded a rock into my sling, I said, "I've never seen you with a sling. Are you any good?"

He huffed, took the sling from my hands, and hit the center of the target with seemingly little effort.


He grinned and walked away to observe the other boys.

Daughter of Helaman, p 174

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.
