Tuesday Teaser: "Until Tuesday," "Fallen" and "The Penguin Who Knew Too Much"


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. 

Gerard's:
He was intelligent. But he was also deep and emotional and hurting at the core.
From page 108 of Until Tuesday--A Wounded Warrior and the Golden Retriever Who Saved Him by by Fmr. Capt. Luis Carlos Montalvan

Like most women, it was rape that had always terrified her, but she knew now that there were far worse dangers. here was at least an animalistic logic to the crime of rape.
From page 163 of Fallen by Karin Slaughter.

Karen's:
"I'll go up to the house and check on the other animals," he said, pulling a small notebook out of his pocket and beginning to scribble in it. "You said penguins, hyenas, and what?"
From page 60 of The Penguin Who Knew Too Much by Donna Andrews.

  8. Seems like intelligent people often are hurting at the core. They can see the pains of life all too clearly.

  12. BookBelle: Different zoo animals.

    Tea: I was just browsing at the library and that title and book cover got my attention. I thought it was cute too and since I like animals, decided to read it.

    Yvonne: Hope you enjoy their books!

    "Confuzzled" Shannon: Yes, I think it's going to be very good.

    Mrs. Q: Gerard ordered this one from the library and there was a long waiting list for it.

    Cecilia: I liked the title too and the cover is really cute as well. My review of it should be up later this week.

    Jennifer: I had a hard time choosing a teaser--didn't know if I should pick one about the soldier or the dog.

    Fredamans: I thought the title was funny.

    Quirky Girls: We think it's going to be a very good one.

    Calico Crazy: They are temporarily watching the animals from the zoo--it's a silly story.

    Shelley Munro: Thanks for stopping by, glad you liked our teasers!
