Teaser Tuesday: 3 Books About The Brain, Dogs and Cats



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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can  add the book to their TBR  Lists  if they  like your teaser. 
Karen's:
Research shows that 87% of illnesses can be attributed to our thought life, and approximately 13% to diet, genetics and environment.  Studies conclusively link more chronic diseases (also known as lifestyle diseases) to an epidemic of toxic emotions in our culture.
from p. 4 of Who Switched Off My Brain?  controlling toxic thoughts and emotions by Dr. Caroline Leaf

The all stood there listening, until with anger in his voice, Prince Ukko gave Narro an order.  "Send out a fast warrior group to capture or kill those dog creatures.  They are evil and must be destroyed."
from p. 4 of Castle In The Mist--Planet of the Dogs Vol. 2 by Richard J. McCarty.

Gerard's:
Dewey stared up at the toy, then looked down.  He can't do it, Yvonne thought.  Then Dewey turned and sprang--like a rocket, as Yvonne remembered it, just like a rocket--and grabbed the oy our of her hand.
From p. 31 of Dewey's Nine Lives--The legacy of the small-town library cat who inspired millions by Vicki Myron with Bret Witter.

  4. Nice teasers--and it is an interesting concept to think that our illnesses can be attributed to our toxic thoughts or emotions. Kind of scary actually!

  5. I like that teaser from Who Switched Off My Brain. If that's true, then I'm glad I discovered Rhonda Byrne and Mike Dooley, who are always telling me to be careful what I think!
