Teaser Tuesdays (Aug. 20)

August 20, 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!

“My final tip is that you ask women — and only women. My theory is that deep in the DNA of men is a ‘killer’ gene.”

~ p.15, “The Art of the Start” by Guy Kawasaki


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

  3. Ohhh….and why is that so? I wanna know why! :) Here’s my teaser

  4. It’s whether or not that gene remains deep and hidden.

    Here’s mine. I finally finished Pride & Prejudice. http://bit.ly/17Gpfcv

  5. Hm, I’m not sure that it’s in the genes … or at least if there is such a “killer” gene that it is restricted to male DNA.

    My teaser is from Zoraida Córdova’s The Savage Blue

    http://mixedbookbag.blogspot.com/2013/08/teaser-tuesday-august-20-2013.html

    Here’s my teaser this week (from Chasm of Books):

    http://chasmofbooks.blogspot.com/2013/08/teaser-tuesday-8.html?spref=tw

  38. Hmmm. I wonder why the author would make that statement and what evidence he has to back it up!
    My teaser is from THROUGH A YELLOW WOOD.

  39. I wonder if this is true.

    My TT

  40. Very interesting! Here’s my Teaser from The Shade of the Moon.

  41. Here’s my teaser this week.

  42. Interesting theory, but depressing. Good teaser, though. Here’s mine:

    http://jlshall.blogspot.com/2013/08/teaser-tuesdays-burgess-boys.html

  43. I don’t know about that, but interesting teaser. :)

    Here’s mine: TT

    Mine is here.

  45. Ooooo. I totally agree. I knew women were the better sex ;)

    Here’s my teaser

  46. Wow! This is an interesting, if not scary, thought. My TT comes from a Patricia Cornwell novel: http://meandu-justthinking.blogspot.ca/2013/08/teaser-tuesdays-082013.html

  47. Hmmm interesting Teaser – not so sure I agree, but it’s something to think about.

    My Teaser

  48. I think it is true to a certain extent due to men’s more competitive nature and women’s more collaborative, but of course, the exception proves the rule. Here’s my teaser: http://carolinebookbinder.blogspot.com/2013/08/teaser-tuesdays-blue-nights.html

  49. Hi MizB,

    I am not so sure that I agree with those teaser lines this week. Women have much more in the way of a ‘killer instinct’ than many men, these days.

    In fact, there are so many ‘women only’ business groups around, here in the UK, that men are the ones being left behind much of the time. There seems to be a complete role reversal going on right now!

    Here is my teaser this week from ‘Sea Of Regret’ by Carolyn Rose

    http://www.fiction-books.biz/weekly-memes/teaser-tuesdays/sea-of-regret-by-carolyn-rose/

    Thanks for hosting and good luck with all the business preparations,

    Yvonne

    I don’t think I believe that. I’m teasing from Niel Gaiman’s “The Ocean at the End of the Lane” Kelley at the road goes ever ever on

  51. LOL There’s a certain truth to that. I know my kids never ask my husband for anything ’cause the answer is always, “Go ask your mom.” Hahaha! Nice teaser :) Here’s mine.

  52. rosecityreader permalink

    That may be the most confusing teaser I have ever read. I must go look up the book.

    My teaser is from Cleans Up Nicely, a new novel about the 1970s New York art scene by Linda Dahl. I am hosting a giveaway for two copies: http://www.rosecityreader.com/2013/08/teaser-tuesday-giveaway-reminder-cleans.html

  53. Sounds like an interesting read. Might have to check that book out.

    Come see my Teaser Tuesday
    -Kim berly @ Turning the Pages

  54. That’s interesting… I’m not sure if I agree with that, but it’s certainly something to think about!

    Here’s mine! :)

  55. A killer gene, eh?
    My Tease is from Rise of Empire, by Michael J Sullivan:
