Teaser Tuesdays (Oct.12)

October 12, 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:

“She pulls the third drawer of her vanity open and digs through it, tossing aside gauzy bits of costume. Then she pulls out a great expanse of shimmering pink something.”

~ p.233, “Water for Elephants” by Sara Gruen

 

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

    • I am not really into Gothic and Vampires, but the fantastic cover on the book made up for that.

      • That will teach me to be guided by what some of your other commenters have written, rather than research the book for myself, oops!

        Having been suitably corrected, I still maintain that the book cover is very evocative and eye catching, although I would not typically make a purchase purely on the strength of a great cover

  12. I’d love to know what the shimmering pink something is! Great teaser. Here’s my teaser.

  13. Great teaser!The book is on my shelf . I might get around to reading it now.
    Here’s My Teaser

  14. Ooh, shimmering and pink, I’m jealous, whatever it is :D

    • These are great lines. Read the blurb on Amazon and it sounds like an amazing book. Hope you enjoy it.

  21. I loved Water for Elephants! Enjoy it. Here is my teaser this week: http://sheeryhall.blogspot.com/2010/10/teaser-tuesdays-scarlet-nights.html

  22. Hi everyone,
    I can’t believe that Tuesday has come around again already.
    The lines from ‘Water For Elephants’ are really intriguing, as I know nothing about this book.
    My lines this week are from a book that I have only just read the first few pages of, but I don’t think the lines are likely to give away any of the plot.
    The book is ‘Strange Affair’ by Peter Robinson and is part of an English detective series.
