Teaser Tuesdays (Apr.23)

April 23, 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!

“’See what happens.’ Uncertain, but worth it.”

  1. I’m getting tempted by all your post about this book. Maybe I’ll grab a copy. Thanks for sharing!
    Here’s my Teaser: http://pause-time.blogspot.com/2013/04/teaser-tuesday-6.html

  2. Makes me think of the gameshow, Let’s Make a Deal: “Let’s see what’s behind door # 2!”

    Here’s my Teaser from Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris.

    Stephanie (Go Flash Go)

  3. Good teaser that made me want to know more about this book. Since we can’t see into the future, “see what happens” is about all we can do!
    My Teaser is from BLUEBONNET BRIDE by Caroline Clemmons.

  4. Love Teaser Tuesday!
    Here’s my Teaser from the book Boundaries: http://growinguplittle.wordpress.com/2013/04/23/teaser-tuesday-boundaries/

  5. Isn’t the normal way to do things?

    Mine is up

  6. Wow! You read interesting books! Thanks for sharing!

    My teaser this week is from Rebound by Nikki Mathis Thompson http://globugandhootie.blogspot.com/2013/04/teaser-tuesday-423-rebound-by-nikki.html?m=1

  7. Hi MizB,

    I am not really sure what has prompted your teaser lines this week, but the idea of just ‘seeing what happens’, and doing anything which has an uncertain outcome, isn’t really me at all. I like to be organised and know in advance exactly what I am doing and when. I have list after list of things to be done and the order in which I should do them and I find myself doing things in the same order, at the same time each day and getting very stressed if something interfers with my routine!

    My teaser lines this week are taken from my current read, although from a page which I have not got to yet, ‘An Uncertain Refuge’ by Carolyn J. Rose….

    Thanks for hosting,

    Yvonne

  8. See what happens…yes, sometimes one needs to stand back and witness the consequences, good or bad.

    My TT

  9. As life is, you have the “uncertain” part way more often than the “worth it” — or at least we like to think so, not appreciating the little things. Anyway, nice teaser!
    Two teasers from me today, AND there’s a giveaway running on my blog! =)

  10. Great teaser. Very nice and inspiring.

    My teaser is from Comes The Night by Norah Wilson: http://dream-wish-live.blogspot.com/2013/04/teaser-tuesdays_22.html
