Teaser Tuesdays (Aug.24)

August 24, 2010

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:

“A hot dog. Yes, she had arms, and her face protruded through an oval opening in the front, but she could only manage a lurching wobble, and forget about seeing anything in her peripheral vision.”

~ p. 2, “Licensed for Trouble” by Susan May Warren

 

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!

    I did not do a post but my teaser is from Kat Richardson’s “Greywalker series book #2-Poltergeist” page 207 sentence #5 & 6..

    I needed a closer look at Celia. In the confusion, I bolted toward the observation room door as the board full of Christmas lights in the seance room exploded, raining colored glass and sparks over Ana, Cara and Wayne.
