Teaser Tuesdays (July 9)

July 9, 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!

“Except me. I was out here, oblivious.”

  1. Short but sweet! Here’s My teaser

  2. Like the tease, it’s short but makes me wonder what is going on.

  3. That’s a very vague teaser. And whoever said that ignorance was bliss has never been in a situation where you’re the only person not in the know.

    My teaser is from Amanda Sun’s Ink.

  4. I’m always out there, oblivious.

    Mine is up

  5. Two teasers from me this week: Check them out
