3 Tuesday Teasers


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:
We walked across the avenue to the McDonald's, and for the first few moments neither of us spoke.  This thing we were doing--going to lunch, a couple of strangers, an adult and a child--it was weird, and we both felt it.
From pg. 7 of An Invisible Thread by Laura Schroff and Alex Tresniowski.

Well, no, see . . . not when your mother's a stark raving psycho. For years she went undiagnosed.
From page 91 of Impulse by Ellen Hopkins.

Karen's:
"Tell me why you're here, Adam. What are you doing in an insane asylum if you don't belong here?"
"I've been asking you the same question since I got here."
Taken from page 41 of Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi.

We are donating 50 cents to KIVA this month to help the poor change their lives for each legitimate comment we receive on all our blogs.

  8. I actually know someone who went for years undiagnosed as a psycho. She finally tipped her hand when her daughter married and she totally lost it.

  15. There seems to be a theme of madness and weirdness in the teasers this week. I'm particularly interested in Shatter Me. Nice choices!

  18. Intense teasers! Thanks for stopping by my blog :-)

  19. Each of those is intriguing in its own way. With the first, WHY is there such a group walking to McD's together? Doesn't sound like they all know each other.

    The second one seems like it could be either fiction or memoir, which makes me want to look and see.

    the last one raises all kinds of interesting questions: WHY is he there, why is she there, does either one belong there?

    Thank you for sharing, and for stopping by!
