Teaser Tuesdays (Feb.8)

February 8, 2011

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:

“’Snip, snip, and they’re gone.’ It was the snip-snipping that worried me, but I tried to shrug nonchalantly.”

~ p.144 , “Promises to Keep” by Ann Tatlock

Please note that there will no longer be a Linky Tools list available each week, as it now requires you to pay for a subscription, and I cannot do that at this time. Sorry for the inconvenience, but I guess it’s back to the comments. :-?

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

  8. Very interesting teaser – cutting her hair??

    Here’s my Teaser! ~ Wendi

  9. I saw her braids and the snip snip and cringed. I hate getting my hair cut. Great teaser.

    You can find my teaser at The Bookish Snob

  10. I’d be worried, too.

    My teaser is here.

  11. Don’t like the sound of this Snip Snip!!

    My Teaser is Here

  12. Hm. I think the snip snipping would be what worried me as well! My teaser this week is from The Vespertine by Saundra Mitchell:

    http://supernaturalsnark.blogspot.com/2011/02/teaser-tuesday-vespertine.html

  13. Uh-Oh, there is drama in those snips! Tantalizing teaser! :)

  14. Donna/BLHmistress permalink

    My mom used always want to keep my hair short hence why I hate snip snip to this day.

    Here’s our Teaser Our Teaser Tuesday

  15. teenagersmom permalink

    I have cut my hair twice in my life and never fully off with it again. I feel her pain.

    http://fredasvoice.blogspot.com/2011/02/teaser-tuesday_08.html

  16. I’d be worried too :-)

    Mine’s from The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett.

  17. http://lazygirlreads.blogspot.com/2011/02/teaser-tuesday.html

    Yeah! I had to close my linky tools account too!! I started using InLinkz, they are pretty cool!! Check them out :)

  18. Oh—made my comment, then discovered there’s no link.

    My teaser is from a cozy mystery at http://yarnknitreadlit.blogspot.com/2011/02/teaser-tuesday-hail-to-chef.html

    Come say hello. Happy reading! :)

    Not the braids! Here’s my teaser from The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa.

  20. What are is being snipped? Here is my teaser from the ARC, Heart of Lies by Jill Marie Landis.

  21. An interesting teaser. My treaser: Charm City

  22. I like that teaser.
    Here’s mine: Reading the Paranormal

  23. Oh no they are cutting her locks!

    Not the lovely locks!

    This week at Aisle B, I’m reading a graphic novel Blankets by Craig Thompson. Something so unexpected from what I imagined…

    http://aisleb.tumblr.com/post/3177202765/teaser-tuesday

    • Yeah, I read that book, and it was definitely different from what I expected, too. It’s the first/only graphic novel I’ve read, so far.

  24. Hope it’s just the braids getting snipped? Good one.

    Here’s mine:

    http://jlshall.blogspot.com/2011/02/teaser-tuesdays-flavias-second-case.html

  25. Oh, I like the way that sentence flows. I wonder what she’s snipping! Possibly the braids the cover model is sporting? Definitely a teaser that makes you want to know more!

    This week, I’m in the middle of two books: http://abackwardsstory.blogspot.com/2011/02/teaser-tuesdays-5.html Teen Paranormal “Hex Hall” and the classic “Pride and Prejudice.”

  26. My teaser is from Mortal Instruments: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. Am really enjoying this book!!

    http://coffeecrackers.blogspot.com/2011/02/teaser-tuesdays-feb-8-2011.html

  27. Great teaser! Here’s mine this week.

  28. Ha! Great tease – It’s difficult to shrug nonchalantly!

    Here’s mine:

    http://sunnyreads.blogspot.com/2011/02/teaser-tuesday-lost-symbol-by-dan-brown.html

  29. sounds like she’s being brave.

    and it’s so sad about the linky–it sure made the meme easier to play. Kaye—the road goes ever ever on

  30. Excellent teaser! Very intrigued, especially with the cover. Surely it’s her pigtails under the snip!

    Check out mine… http://scribble-scatter.blogspot.com/2011/02/teaser-tuesday-more-from-city-of-sun.html

    Enjoy!
    :0)

    This week I chose The Genius Files: Mission Unstoppable for my teaser.

    Oh, and I’ve switched to http://www.inlinkz.com/ it seems to be comparable and it only costs if you want more than text links…

  57. Ann Tatlock is a wonderful author. I’ve read a couple of her books.

    I have two teasers this week, and they’re both here.

  62. Nanny permalink

    I saw the cover and braids and cringed a little when I read the snip snip part. Great Teaser here’s mine- http://gnbstacks.blogspot.com/2011/02/teaser-tuesday_08.html

  63. I’ve got the same book as last week, as it’s a long one – but a good one! That sucks about the Linky. Thanks!

    http://carolinebookbinder.blogspot.com/2011/02/teaser-tuesdays-emperor-of-all-maladies_08.html

  64. That was a good choice. It’s gotta be a haircut scene.

    My Teaser is a little different.

    Jessica @ Laugh Love Write

  65. Thanks for sharing! Will need to point this book out to my wife! Here’s mine: http://beltwayliterature.com/2011/02/08/teaser-tuesday-capital

  66. My teaser is from a modern day knight and lady story: Hard Day’s Knight.

  72. I hope they’re talking about hair!

  74. Here is my teaser http://www.ephemeraldigest.co.uk/2011/02/tuesday-teaser-the-wise-heart/

    My teaser is at:

  76. I would be happy to send you the money needed for the subscription to Mr. Linky. Or perhaps I could add a Mr. Linky to my page with your permission and acknowledgement that you are the host site.

  77. Interesting teaser! Here’s mine for this week: http://www.rulethewaves.net/blog/?p=2091

  78. Cool teaser. Here is my Teaser for Tuesday.

  79. Intriguing teaser! I wonder if it’s refering to the snipping off of those beutiful braids on the cover, sort of symbolic of moving from childhood into adult life.
    I’m going to look this book up.

    My teaser’s up:
    Today’s teaser!

    I hope you all like it!

  80. Based on the cover, I’d have to say the snipping refers to her braided pigtails. If very long, it certainly would be difficult to shrug nonchalantly.

    My teaser is here: http://shirley-mybookshelf.blogspot.com/2011/02/teaser-tuesdays-2811.html

  81. Here is my teaser! http://lisaisabookworm.blogspot.com/2011/02/teaser-tuesday_08.html

    I wonder if you teaser has something to do with the cute braids on the back of the little girls head on the cover.

  82. My teaser is posted! Is anyone else a Harry Potter fan? Movies or books? Feel free to stop by and comment here!!!

    Sincerely,

    http://atticgirl.blogspot.com/2011/02/teaser-tuesdays-magic-warble-by.html

  88. Nari permalink

    Interesting teaser. I wonder if the snipping has to do with the girl’s hair on the cover of the book?

  103. I’d worry about snip snipping too!

    My teaser for this week

  104. Sounds interesting. The cover makes you think it’s referring to the braids, but I wonder if it’s a metaphor broken promises – just guessing as I’ve not read the book.

    Here’s mine: http://bookladysbooknotes.blogspot.com/2011/02/teaser-tuesdays-feb-8th.html

  105. a great teaser makes me wonder what they a snipping.. I hope their snipping their hair…

  107. an interesting teaser this week. I have to agree with one of the other comments – this teaser does make it seem like it’s referring to the braids. But it’s probably not…

    Here’s my teaser: http://imreading-goodforme.blogspot.com/2011/02/teaser-tuesday-13.html

  108. I can’t wait to check out a few of these teasers! Here is mine: http://infertilenanny.blogspot.com/2011/02/teaser-tuesdays.html

    http://miss-check-out.blogspot.com/2011/02/teaser-tuesday-playing-with-fire-by.html

  112. Great teaser! I hope it’s just hair that’s being cut off.

    Mine is from Ash by Malinda Lo:

    My teaser is from The Water Wars by Cameron Stracher :)

  115. This week’s TT features Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton :)

    http://booksoverboys.blogspot.com/2011/02/teaser-tuesday-5.html

  116. Since my blog is not suited to this type of articles, here goes my TT

    “I’m real, and I’m here in a hotel room last inhabited by a man who is in a broken heap in the morgue because he decided life was no longer worth it.” The Scarpetta Factor, Patricia Cornwell

    Science Fiction & Political Thought

  117. Teaser Tuesday at the book geek:

    http://tbgreviews.blogspot.com/2011/02/teaser-tuesday.html

    Happy Reading!

  118. Interesting teaser! I am hoping it’s hair that is being snipped and I want to know why it bothers the character so much.

    Reading Lark’s Teaser

  119. Judging by the cover, I really hope that it isn’t the little girls hair being snipped off — and if it is — I hope there is good reason. That is some beautiful hair!!

    Here’s my Teaser: http://brandiheathersreviews.blogspot.com/2011/02/teaser-tuesday-16.html

  120. Like others have speculated, is she losing that hair on the cover? Hm.

    Here’s my teaser:http://agoodstoppingpoint.wordpress.com/2011/02/08/teaser-tuesday-the-blind-assassin/

  121. I’ve never had long hair enough to feel uneasy about getting it cut. Recently I’ve been reading novels set in times, such as the 18th century, when a woman’s hair was very important in reflecting who she is publically as well as being a part of her perceptions of herself as a sexual being.

    My TT this week is all about women and their struggles to balance work, relationships, and children–set in 1600 Italy. It’s “The Passion of Artemisia” by Susan Vreeland at Summit Musings

  122. I missed last week’s TT but I got it this week. Great pick! Here is the link to my TT

  123. That snip-snipping sounds ominous. Nice teaser!

    I’m late with mine: http://simplengkaligayahan.blogspot.com/2011/02/i-wish-i-lived-in-pern.html

  124. The only thing I can think of is cutting her pretty braids off…if it was me, I would cry!

    You can find my TT from The Sharper Your Knife, The Less You Cry here: http://ksbooks.wordpress.com/2011/02/08/teaser-tuesday-30/
