Teaser Tuesdays (Apr.16)

April 16, 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!

“Icarus was told not to fly too high, and not to fly too low. But what is the right altitude?”

~ p.36, “The Icarus Deception” by Seth Godin

  1. Yes finding the right balance is hard. Never really considered it a parable like before but it is.

  2. My kids and I read the actual Greek Myth of that story. Quite interesting. :) Here’s my teasers for Etiquette & Espionage and Sweet Mercy.

  3. Hm. Beats me what the right altitude is… Interesting teaser.

    Mine is from Unravel Me (Shatter Me #2) by Tahereh Mafi: http://dream-wish-live.blogspot.com/2013/04/teaser-tuesdays_15.html

    Ooh! This sounds interesting. I hope you are enjoying it!

    Our teasers this week are from Stalk Me and Frenchman’s Creek. Happy Tuesday!

  5. That’s a good point, there’s no such thing as perfection is what I’m taking from it. Here’s mine this week: http://cornucopiaofreviews.blogspot.com/2013/04/teaser-tuesday-april-15.html

  6. Oh I love the myth of Icarus. Applying that concept to every day life is interesting.

    Here’s my teaser: Zenn Scarlett by Christian Schoon

    Icarus is one of my favorite myths, sounds like an interesting read. My teaser is over at Book Savvy Babes. Happy reading!

  8. Clever teaser. Sounds like a neat book. You can find mine at http://www.thebusymomsdaily.com/2013/04/teaser-tuesdays-april-16th.html

  9. Now those are types of questions I always find myself asking! How much is too much and how much is too little? Lovely teaser!

    Here’s my Teaser Tuesday post!

    Happy reading and have a great week ahead! :D

  10. Good question, that one. But something you can grow grey over because there isn’t a right answer….
    My teaser has a very refreshing style this time. =)

  11. Yeah, by the time you’ve figured out where it’s too high and where too low, it’s too late.

    Mine is up

  12. Quite the difficult question. And he did get it wrong in the end.

    Here’s our teaser

  13. Huh…I like how there’s double meaning in this teaser.

    My TT

  14. That would be a bit confusing!
    My teaser this week is a historical romance – Here’s My Teaser

  15. This sounds like a really interesting book. Will be adding it to my TBR! :)

    My teaser for this week is a classic I’ve been revisiting. I dare people not to smile! :) http://myjourneywithdepression.wordpress.com/2013/04/16/teaser-tuesday-winnie-the-pooh/

  16. Good question and I guess the answer would be different for everybody :-)

    My teaser this week can be found here:
    http://www.sapphireddragon.com/2013/04/teaser-tuesday-55.html

  17. It’s all about finding balance : nor too much playing it safe, nor being too much of a daredevil. I just checked out the book and it seems an interesting read.

    You can find my teaser over at Le chat de Bibliothèque
