Teaser Tuesdays (June 14)

June 14, 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:

“You never know what someone else has to deal with either physically or in their mind! Most of us would choose to keep our own problems.”

~ p.17, “Does Change Have to Be So H.A.R.D?” by Julie Donley, R.N.




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!

  1. Great teaser!
    Mine’s here

  2. I’m paying tribute all this week to the writing of Flannery O’Connor and the author herself. I consider her one of the greatest American authors. Unfortunately I’m finding that she is little known among most readers. Readers really should at least check out some of her work.

  3. I don’t know if change has to be hard but usually long process.

    My teaser is from The Betrayal of Maggie Blair

    http://confuzzledbooks.blogspot.com/2011/06/teaser-tuesday-betrayal-of-maggie-blair.html

  4. Very wise words … thanks for sharing this one.

    Here’s mine:

  5. Great teaser!

  6. that’s a beautiful teaser. TT is really fast now ;)

    I love the profound teasers you’ve been sharing lately… very insightful.

    Here’s mine: http://tfwalsh.wordpress.com/2011/06/14/teaser-tuesday-the-melancholy-death-of-oyster-boy/

  8. I agree most of us would rather keep our own problems.

    Here is my TT… http://annsreadingcorner.blogspot.com

  9. The problem with change is that it usually isn’t just one thing that changes, but several all at once. My teaser

  10. I so agree with that teaser. I tend to keep personal stuff to myself.

    Here’s my teaser: Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini!

  11. Wise words. Important for us to remember that we don’t know the sadness or challenges that even our closest friends deal with. My TT is Swedish crime fiction, “The Ice Princess” by Camilla Lackberg. Have it set to post at 6:00 AM (Eastern Time). Link: Summit Musings

  12. Read@UTS Library has started the ball rolling in our teaser tuesdays!

    http://read.lib.uts.edu.au/2011/06/teaser-tuesdays-14-june-2011.html

  13. That is a very wise teaser! Sometimes our own problems look like mountains but compared to other people’s they could be molehills.

    My teasers this week are from Divergent by Veronica Roth

  14. Sonny @ Literary Junkie (YA) permalink

    Here is my teaser for Hexult.

    http://literaryjunkie11.blogspot.com/2011/06/teaser-tuesday.html

    http://awrittenrhapsody.blogspot.com/2011/06/teaser-tuesday-mayne-attraction-by-ann.html

  18. Thats a teaser to make you think lol, great choice! I really like that teaser.

    Here is my TT for this week: Seeing Night Reviews: A Warrior’s Witch by Stacey Kennedy

  19. Interesting teaser this week. Here’s mine this week.

  20. If I ever start to pass judgement or criticise others, my husabnd is always fond of quoting ‘You have no idea what that person is going through, until you have walked a mile in their shoes’. I guess this book just bears out that sentiment, although change is always a long and painful process, perhaps it is something we may all benefit from at some time in our lives.

    My teaser this week, is from a great British crime writer P.D. James

  70. That’s quite an insightful teaser. Keeping problems to ourselves only meant that we can deal with it on our own as strong and confident as one can be or that we are either shy or embarrassed about it to even share it with someone.

    And here’s my comeback teaser, by the way.

    http://ivan-ulrich.blogspot.com/2011/06/teaser-tuesdays.html

  71. That definitely is a great thought….you never know what others are going through.

    Stop by my blog if you like…there is a Father’s Day Giveaway….five books.

    Here is the link….good luck.

    My teaser is from the latest Anita Blake novel: Hit List.

  84. Keeping your problems to yourself is not always the best thing to do. Sometimes you need to share.

    Here’s mine:

    http://laurenstvtotebookbag.blogspot.com/2011/06/teaser-tuesday-8.html

  85. Very True!

    Here is our TT -http://www.pageturnersblog.com/2011/06/teaser-tuesday_14.html#axzz1PDwRoUXB

    Hereafter by Tara Hudson

  90. Love that teaser. I think that’s essential in life, really. When you deal with difficult people it’s best to put yourself in their shoes. They may not be less difficult, but you’ll be better able to treat them with compassion. My teaser is from Sister by Rosamund Lupton. Happy Tuesday everyone!

  91. I agree with your teaser. I would take my own challenges over anyone else any day. Mine are familiar to me and we have grown together.

    My teaser this week comes from “My Blood Approves”. http://lisaisabookworm.blogspot.com/2011/06/teaser-tuesday_14.html

  92. How very true!

    Here is mine this week. It is from Rotters by Daniel Kraus.

    http://thefablefairy.blogspot.com/2011/06/teaser-tuesday-2-frostbite-by-richelle_14.html

  94. Great teaser! So true! Here’ mine. Happy Tuesday!

  95. Interesting teaser. Why does change have to be so hard? Why do we resist change? Sounds like an interesting book.

    Here’s mine:

    http://seducedbyyarn.blogspot.com/2011/06/teaser-tuesdays_14.html

    Yep… yet another cozy mystery.

  96. Interesting teaser! I totally agree.

    http://apaperbacklife.wordpress.com/2011/06/14/teaser-tuesdays-june-14/

  106. I’m not so sure about that. I might take someone else’s problems, just for the variety!

    My teaser is here.

  107. Lots of good teasers this week! Mine is from The Curse Girl by Kate Ellison. You can find it here: http://thebookishbabes.blogspot.com/

  108. I believe that is correct–I’m teasing from a rewrite of Cinderella, “Mark of Royalty”. Kaye—the road goes ever ever on

  109. So, so true. Sigh.

    My teaser is from Fins Are Forever by Tera Lynn Childs. http://leecheeeee813.blogspot.com/2011/06/teaser-tuesday-23.html

  110. Funny, I have to remind myself of this almost every day. ;p

    My teaser: http://irregularsilsbee.blogspot.com/2011/06/teaser-tuesday.html

  111. That looks an interesting title! Walking in someone else’s shoes? Here’s my teaser

    I’m reading Fantasy instead of Urban Fantasy for a change:

  113. Intriguing! Sounds like a great read :)

    Here is my teaser – http://knitpurlstitch.blogspot.com/2011/06/teaser-tuesdays-11.html

  114. Mine is from “The Promised World” by Lisa Tucker . Here is the link http://readingbetweenpages.wordpress.com/

  115. So very true. Luckily change doesn’t always have to be bad, but even when it’s a good change it still takes some adjustment and time. Great teaser! Mine is from Karin Slaughter’s upcoming book Fallen. You can check my post out *HERE*

  116. Wow, Interesting teaser! Thank you for sharing!
    Here is mine:

    http://throwingbooks.blogspot.com/2011/06/teaser-tuesdays-2-june-14.html

  117. great teaser.

    http://booksandbarks.blogspot.com/2011/06/teaser-tuesday-mortal-sins-by-eileen.html

  120. I like your teaser – I think it’s easy to see the physical issues people deal with, but the mental obstacles people fight every day are harder to see, good thing to remember the next time we envy someone because we think they have less to deal with. Probably isn’t the case!

    The protagonist in my TT this week has to deal with a bad case of MEMORY loss! Very good book: The Two Deaths of Daniel Hayes by Markus Sakey
    April @ My Shelf Confessions: Teaser Tuesday

  121. That teaser is a good reminder!

    Here is mine on Rose City Reader: http://www.rosecityreader.com/2011/06/teaser-tuesday-hidden-target.html

  122. That really is a great teaser! I always strive not to judge, because you really never know what’s going on with someone else. That person who’s always late to work? Maybe they have to do treatments in the morning and they’re not sharing that info … or maybe they’re a caregiver to someone and they have to wait for the aide to get in before they can leave … you never know.

    Thanks for sharing! Here’s my teaser: http://www.knittingandsundries.com/2011/06/teaser-tuesdays-june-14-2011.html

  123. Your teaser today is especially poignant. You never know what someone is hiding – some people who you think are leading charmed lives aren’t, and others who seem so wonderful aren’t, and still others….I could go on and on…

    Here is my teaser – took me way too long to post it this time. Brain would not work.
