Teaser Tuesdays (Jan.8)

January 8, 2013

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!

ArtForger_BAShapiroMy Teasers:

“I suddenly understand what the term ‘heart in your throat’ means; it feels as if every major organ in my body has squeezed itself behind my larynx. Still clutching my brush, I join him.”

~ p.178, “The Art Forger” by B. A. Shapiro

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
