Teaser Tuesdays (June 10)

June 10, 2014

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!

“…we are faced with the same situation over and over again, and respond in the same way, over and over again — as if no other course of action were available to us. We assume that our thoughts, actions, and feelings are inevitable, that we do not have a choice, when in fact, we do!”

~ p. 7, “Choose the Life You Want” by Tal Ben-Shahar, Ph.D.

 

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

    My Teaser is from LEAN ON ME.

  29. Because it’s an extremely lengthy read for me (and I took a 2 day pause to read a shorter book) this is the second week in a row for me to feature a teaser from City of Heavenly Fire.

  32. Ooh, great teaser this week! :D

    Here’s mine!

  33. That’s one of my pet peeves. And the theme of one of my soon-to-be-published books!

    Mine this week is from classic Zane Grey western “Riders of the Purple Sage”: http://pdworkman.com/excerpt-from-riders-of-the-purple-sage-teasertuesday/

  34. This teaser is an interesting idea about human behavior.

    Here is my teaser for this week: http://onceuponacoffin.blogspot.com/2014/06/teaser-tuesday-nash.html

  35. “It was a Sunday morning. Lev had a screwdriver and a pencil with him, and cycled down to one of the footbridges over Ringveien.”

    Nemesis, a Harry Hole Novel by Jo Nesbo, “the best Norwegian crime writer of all time.” Love Scandinavian noir–so dark. I dare you.

  36. Good teaser!

  38. I managed to break away from series mysteries this week and have one from Goethe.

  39. Have never read this one, though my dad loved westerns, especially those by Zane Grey and Louis L’Amour. Mine is from a classic childhood favorite: Rascal by Sterling North

    • Please ignore – was posting a comment on PD’s blog, there was some sort of glitch, and next thing I know it’s posted HERE instead of there – and my fingers were nowhere near the back key. Technology! :-\

  40. The book my teaser is from falls along those same lines. :)
    My TT

  41. Your teaser sounds interesting.

    I joined in TT this week for the first time. My TT

  42. Like a broken record or a hamster in a wheel. We need to learn to think differently. Very excellent tease!
    Mine is from a ghost story by Sarah Langan – The Keeper

      ‘The body is amazingly plastic. The spirit, even more so. But there are some things you don’t come back from.
      Say ye so, a nighean? True, the body’s easily maimed, and the spirit can be crippled – yet there’s that in a man that is never destroyed.’

      Prologue to An Echo in the Bone (book 7 of the Outlander series) by Diana Gabaldon.

  45. The doing the same thing over and over again, isn’t that the beginning of the definition of insanity, all it’s missing is the whole believing in/hoping for a different result? Here’s mine: http://writingcrazyme.blogspot.com/2014/06/teaser-tuesday-165-june-10th.html

  46. This is such a cool idea. I definitely want to start doing this! Thanks for thinking it up :D
