Teaser Tuesdays (Apr.26)

April 26, 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!

  19. Hi MizB,

    Some great teaser lines this week.

    I’m not sure that the full-on fantasy/paranormal genre is for me just yet, although I did vow that this year I would try more books that are outside my usual genres and comfort zone.

    So after an author request to read and review, my teaser this week, is from a contemporary paranormal romance ‘The Hambledown Dream’, by a great new Australian author, Dean Mayes.

    So far, so good, I have nejoyed the opening couple of chapters.

    Thanks for hosting.

  20. I’m so attached to P.C.’s Partholon and Goddess Summoning books that I’m hesitant to try HON, as silly as that sounds. Plus, I’m “vampired out.” LOL. Here’s my teaser: Teaser Tuesday post

  21. I really like that word ‘skittered’.

    My teaser this week is from The Ignorance of Blood by Robert Wilson – an engrossing crime-thriller in audiobook.

  22. Here is mine :)

    I am reading the making of us by Lisa Jewell
