Teaser Tuesdays (Apr.17)

April 17, 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:

“’It’s the sea witch,’ Alan hiccuped.
‘Stop,’ Darcy said nervously, glancing around.”
~ p. 19, “Wrecked” by Anna Davies

 

Don’t forget! There will be a giveaway for two of my readers to win copies
of this book, a couple of weeks from now, here at SBR! Please stay tuned!


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!
