Teaser Tuesday: "Fragile" & "The Pelican Brief"

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought I would play for fun! 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 teaser. 
Gerard's:
Even when he hated his father--and sometimes he really, really did--there was still a part of him that waited like a puppy for a bone.  Anything--a smile, a pat on the shoulder.  Anything.
From p. 57 of Fragile by Lisa Unger.

Karen's:

In two hundred and twenty years, we've assassinated four Presidents, two or three candidates, a handful of civil rights leaders, couple of governors, but never a Supreme Court Justice.  And now, in one night, within two hours, two are assassinated.
From p. 39 of The Pelican Brief by John Grisham.

  5. I read my first Lisa Unger this year and really enjoyed it, will definitely read this one also.

    I watched Pelican Brief when it came out.

    Here is my review from last weeks TT if interested, Relic, a horror in time for Halloween.

  6. Unger is one of my new favorite authors, and The Pelican Brief is one of the few Grisham's I haven't read. Can't wait for your reviews...
