Tuesday Teasers: 3 For You Today!


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. 
We have one non-fiction and two fiction for you today:
Karen's:
Non-fiction taeser--
Honestly, can you think of any act more intimate than joining together in a quiet place, holding hands in prayer, and allowing your soul to be bare naked before God?
This is our pledge: entering into this act of intimacy on a daily basis with the one person you love more than any other will take you to a level of joy and satisfaction that you simply will not believe.
From pg. 3 of Couples Who Pray--The Most Intimate Act Between A Man And A Woman by Squire Rushnell and Louise Duart (non-fiction)

Science fiction teaser--
Bodies hanging from the ceiling, reeking of death and rot, then gone completely in a matter of minutes. A stranger--and his desk!--appear out of nowhere, with an impossible shield protecting them. Then they disappear.
From p. 63 of The Scorch Trials by James Dashner, sequel to The Maze Runner 

Gerard's:
Fiction--
"Come on, Emily, you can't go in there. No telling what kind of crap is in that water. Just give E some time. He'll come back up. Remember, he's a dog!"
From pg. 178 of Emily and Einstein by Francis Lee

  8. I've heard good things about the Maze Runner. The author came to a Middle School in my city and spoke with a select group of 7th and 8th graders - they won a contest for reading.
