Teaser Tuesdays (April 3)

April 3, 2012

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:

“I occasionally ask God if He’s up for a suggestion or two–especially if I meet a cool guy. Usually, God’s answer is, “I’m not taking nominations”, and apparently, because He’s God, He does not need my help.” ~ “Finally the Bride: Finding Hope While Waitingby Cheryl McKay



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!

  11. Hi MizB,

    Sad, but true teaser lines, although this book is not at all what I expected, when I checked out the full synopsis, with even the cover belying the true content within it’s covers.

    I have to say that this probably isn’t a book that would interest me, but I hope that you enjoy it.

    My teaser lines can be found here:
