Teaser Tuesdays

October 28, 2008

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

      I couldn’t resist giving two teasers from the same book! (I mean two sets of two or three sentences.)

    13. Here’s mine:

      Sometimes it is really hard to have a teaser be just two sentences.

    14. I can’t believe it – I have mind up before noon! Pacific Time, anyway. Here it is:

      http://booksandmovies.today.com/2008/10/28/teaser-tuesdays-its-tuesday-where-are-you-october-28-2008/

    15. Wow! You hadn’t even posted when I checked this morning, and by the time I get a chance to come back, I’m 20th on the list!

      Anyway – here’s my Teaser!

    16. From a very fun “Stud” Lit find – I believe I discovered this book from one of you right here on Teaser Tuesdays!

    17. Yay, My 2nd Tuesday Teaser or Teaser Tuesday :)

    18. I always tend to do a little more than 2 sentences… sometimes you just can’t get a good teaser!

    19. My teaser is from a book every woman who has ever thought about running a marathon should read! “The Non-Runner’s Marathon Guide for Women; Get off your butt and on with your training”

    20. I’ve been trying to make room Dracula since I bought it earlier this year! Great teaser!

    21. I’ve been lurking for sometime and thought I really should start doing this.

      Here is mine:

    22. 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.

    23. Oops, there I go again, I wrote my Teaser Tuesday post this morning but forgot to link it here! Here it is.

    24. Great teaser! I really must dig out my copy of Dracula from the TBR pile one of these days.

      My teaser’s here: http://www.aliceteh.com/2008/10/teaser-tuesdays-monster-and-blog-award.html

      http://www.janezlifeandtimes.wordpress.com

      maybe next week I can hit Tuesday – hmm I am catering a Melbourne Cup Lunch – well will see how I go

    26. Ok, so I’ve never done this before and didn’t realize the teaser was the same thing each week! I’m posting here so someone might read mine!

      http://storytimewithtonya.blogspot.com/2008/10/current-book.html

    27. 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.

    28. 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.

    29. 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.

      You can find the direct link here: http://www.ddubsreads.com/DDubsReads/Blog/Entries/2009/2/10_Teaser_Tuesdays%3A_Jack_Kerouac’s_Desolation_Angels.html

    30. “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.

    31. Great one! Mine is here

    32. I’ve never read Dracula…
      here is mine~

    33. Ooh, Dracula. How appropriate for this time of year!

      Here’s mine:

    34. Desolation Angels is pretty ambitious.

      This Teaser is from page 179 of “Mr. Toppit” by Charles Elton.
