Tuesday Teasers: Four This Week!


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:
Naw, Jake, that's why I got you. I don't plan to go to no gas chamber. I saw you get Lester off, now just get me off.
From page 100 of A Time To Kill by John Grisham.

Early each Saturday morning, the keepers would take Gita [an elephant] on a long, rambling walk around the grounds before the zoo opened, and it was my privilege to be invited to go along, several times. Those are the memories etched in my mind.
From page 54 of Betty and Friends by Betty White.  (Karen reviewed this non-fiction one already.)

Karen's:
Maybe my parents will forget about what the neighbors think and welcome me as their daughter again. And maybe, just maybe, Brynn will forgive me.
From page 45 of These Things Hidden by Heather Gudenkauf.  (Gerard's review of this one is up.)

On her first day running the store, she'd been the unwitting victim of a lightning-fast swipe from Hamlet's claws. The attack had occurred as she'd moved his downstairs food bowl from its usual spot, in front of the local author showcase, to the corner of the science-fiction section.
From page 2 of Double Booked For Death by Ali Brandon. (a cozy mystery)

  7. I remembered loving John Grisham's novels when I was in the university. Brings back a lot of memories. You're reading quite a lot of books this week! :) I usually do the same myself - reading multiple books all at once. :) Can't help it, I suppose.

    Here's our TT over at GatheringBooks:

  9. The one for 'Betty and Friends' made me think about 'Water for Elephants' that was a good book to. They all sound different, but interesting.
