Teaser Tuesdays (Oct.23)

October 23, 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:

“No I didn’t. That’s not what I meant at all.”

~ p.139, “Coming Up for Air” by Patti Callahan Henry

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! :D

  42. Hi MizB,

    I wonder if this is the start of a full blown argument, or just a lovers tiff?

    These are definitely good lines for not giving anything away about the story.

    I love the sound of the book though, so it has gone onto my reading list.

    Thanks for sharing your lines and hosting today. Here are my teaser lines.
