Tuesday Teasers: "Sophie" and "Every Day A Friday"


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: Finished reading Sophie: The Castaway Dog and just had to share to teaser with you from it!
Now, washed up on a barely inhabited island with very little meaty wildlife for her to live off--even if she was able to work out how to hunt for her own food--her dog mettle was about to be truly tested. How would her suburban upbringing as a civilized pet and her attachment to the Griffiths fare out here?
From page 146 of Sohpie: The Incredible True Story of the Castaway Dog by Emma Pearse.

Karen's:
     By having a cheerful countenance, being friendly and fun to be around, you are giving praise to God.
     Too many people drag through the day with long faces. Some don't smile for months. Then they'll come up with those same sour faces after a service and say to me, "I've got the joy of the Lord."
     I'll think: You should notify your face!
     The Bible says to be sober-minded, not sober-faced.
From page 31 of Every Day A Friday by Joel Osteen.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

  2. I liked both teasers. They are both interesting in different ways. The second being much more thought-provoking and I'm smiling right now. My teasers are from When the Sea Is Rising Red by Cat Hellisen and Between the Duke and the Deep Blue Sea by Sophia Nash. Happy reading!

  7. Interesting teasers, different but both intriguing.

    You should try Under the Never Sky if you liked Divergent. It's a differnet concept but a well developed dystopia.

    Thank you for stopping by at BookVenturers.
