Teaser Tuesdays (Dec.8)

December 8, 2009

teasertuesdays31 Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share 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!

My Teasers:

“Bill maintained a stony silence. His gaze lingering on me until the last minute, Eric stepped through the door, and Bill locked it behind him.”

~ p.104, “Living Dead in Dallas” by Charlaine Harris

 

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!

  67. Love this series. Here’s my Teaser Tuesday: TexasRed Books

  68. I need to read these books.
    These teasers are tempting me to just go steal the boxset from Barnes and Noble. I’m sure they have more in the back anyways.
    My teaser this week is for On the Bright Side, I’m Now The Girlfriend of A Sex God by Louise Rennison.

    Anyways, mine’s is from Scones and Sensibiltiy by Lindsay Eland: http://bit.ly/8l66u5

  73. If I play along I should leave a link! LOL

    My Teaser.

  74. Here’s my teaser. First time for me!

  75. Here is my Teaser

  76. I really need to read the Sookie Stackhouse series – – I don’t think watching True Blood counts. Does it?
    Great teaser!

    Here is mine: http://psychoticstate.blogspot.com/2009/12/teaser-tuesdays-december-8-2009.html

  77. I went nuts this week. I posted five teasers. The titles and authors are listed here: http://sonderbooks.com/blog/?p=950

    Teaser Number One: “Well, you mustn’t be caught by them!” the king said to Minli. “Then they would find out all about my little adventures and then where will I be?”

    Teaser Number Two: The dresses and the food didn’t matter, but the laughing did, and you didn’t wear the bells out by ringing them. Did happiness wear out?

    Teaser Number Three: This doesn’t have anything to do with anything, but it would seem weird if I didn’t mention that the Hallsteds’ green Cadillac might not actually be green. I am a deuteranope.

    Teaser Number Four: There wouldn’t be a chance to get coats. In the falling snow, she could hold the baby against her, using the blanket to shield him.

    Teaser Number Five: On the way to lunch on Tuesday, they pause at the front end of the car, united by a common sympathy for ruined metal. Duncan can’t help thinking that given a woman’s bruised face or a bad dent, he knows which one he’d wince at first.

  78. Oh what a teaser!!! A little late on my post.

    Here is mine

    http://chickity-chicklit.blogspot.com/2009/12/teaser-tuesday12809.html

  79. The Sookie Stackhouse books are so much fun.

    Here is my teaser for this week:

    http://terraonthebookshelf.blogspot.com/2009/12/teaser-tuesdays-is-weekly-bookish-meme.html

  80. Garland of Straw by Stella Riley

    Page 139 on the *cough* wedding night between the unwilling to be married H&H,

    “Because, hard though it may be hard for you to accept, I’m not inclined towards rape and have an undoubtedly plebian preference for more than just a body between the sheets. Even, I’m afraid, when the goods on offer are as decorative as you.”

  81. Here’s my teaser. I posted it Tuesday but didn’t get around to linking it until now… http://lostforwords-corrine.blogspot.com/2009/12/teaser-tuesdays.html :)

  82. Magnificent site. A lot of helpful information here. I’m sending it to a few pals ans additionally sharing in delicious. And of course, thank you on your sweat!
