Teaser Tuesdays

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!
  • My 2 Teasers:

    “Suddenly I became broad awake, and sat up, with a horrible sense of fear upon me, and of some feeling of emptiness around me. The room was dark, so I could not see Lucy’s bed; I stole across and felt for her. The bed was empty.”
    ~ p.99, Bram Stoker’sDracula

    (Yes, I realize that’s 3 sentences, but it helped the Teaser to be a bit more clear, I think.) ;)

    PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or leave your 2 ‘teasers’ in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks! :D

    1. MizB – I would just like to THANK YOU for hosting this meme – it has introduced me to more books than I will ever have time to read. The fastest and easiest way for me to find new titles that I have come across online.

    2. Thanks MizB – I do check out Friday Finds as well and have gotten several others from there too. But not everyone writes a description of the books but rather just lists them or links to them. With TT the look into the book is automatically provided and if I like what I’ve read then I go digging further. Both are fun – I just don’t always have as much time as I would like in order to spend with Friday Finds.

    3. Thanks, MizB. I’ll leave mine here :)

      “I didn’t hear ’bout that story till I was growed, but I still felt sorry for them kids. Not so much about walkin to school in wet britches as ’cause I know what it’s like to get beat down for bein born with different-colored skin.”

      I’m halfway through this book: Same Kind of Different As Me, by Ron Hall and Denver Moore, with Lynn Vincent. So far, it’s excellent.

    4. Mine is up! I chose one of the book’s I’m currently reading, Jack Kerouac’s Desolation Angels:

      “Ah shut up” we both say (in our sneering thoughts) which gets Cody mad and he bats the car outa hell right into Third Street winos stumbling from the bottles you can see empty in the alleys and traffic around, he curses and swivels — “Hey take it easy!” yells Penny as his mad elbows bang into her. He looks mad enough to rob a bank or kill a cop. You’d think looking at him he was a wanted outlaw in Oklahoma Panhandle 1892. He’d make Dick Tracy shiver before shoot holes in his head.

    5. “The invention of Washington, D.C., is in part a soaring story of national aspiration, in part a cautionary tale of the first great landgrabbing boondoggle in American history, and in part a grim record of slavery’s buried history.”
      The above is only one sentence from Fergus M. Bordewich’s novel Washington The Making of the American Capital.
