Teaser Tuesdays (Nov.11)

November 11, 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:

    “She firmly believed that nothing in life was incidental. People came to you, crossed your path for a reason. You either had a lesson to learn from them or you were meant to teach them something. Perhaps both.”
    ~ p.89, “The Big Heat” by Jennifer LaBrecque
    (yes, I know that’s 4 sentences, but today it just was so good, that I had to include the whole thing). ;)

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

    Edited to add: The Teaser Tuesday “rules” are really just GUIDELINES so that we don’t end up having to read a whole passage for anyone’s “teaser”… that tends to get burdensome. Hence why I say just “two teaser sentences”. And, the lines on the page is random, too… these aren’t hard-and-fast rules, so don’t worry if you don’t follow them exactly. The only REAL rule is please don’t post any ‘teasers’ that might spoil the plot of the book. Otherwise, you’re free to do these how you please. ;) Like mine for today — I used a ‘teaser’ that I found while reading last night. It was just too good to pass up. ;)

    20. Wow, your teaser seems a bit too perfect to be random. I have opened to some pretty inane sentences when doing this kind of thing before. Here is my teaser

    25. Today’s teaser comes from A Year In The World by Frances Mayes.

      Bodnant was also someone’s dream, but only of a house and large garden. We glanced at the upright Tudor mansion, perkier than most, with many pointed dormers and crisp white paint between the beams. The sublime first impression of wide terraces above the river Conwy and views of mountains only began the extravagant delights of Bodnant.
