Tuesday Teasers: "Home Front" and "Gone"


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:
Betsy looked up at him, her gaze sharp and assessing. "Maybe it's because of that fight you had. When you said you didn't love her anymore."
From page 247 of Home Front by Kristin Hannah.

Karen's:
"Something weird is happening. My math study group . . . there were just three of us, plus the teacher. They all just disappeared."
From page 3 of Gone by Michael Grant.


Happy Reading! We are donating 50 cents for each legitimate comment we receive on all our blogs during March to the American Cancer Society.

  1. I need to read Gone! I started it but didn't have time to finish it before I had to return it to the library. So freaky if all the adults disappeared. And the other teaser was great too. If he said he didn't love her anymore I bet that did cause some tension. Thanks for visiting My TT!

  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I picked that teaser because it was so evocative, I promise it's not as gruesome as it sounds- just very very evocative.

    Great teasers though! I Especially like the Gone one. Very....teasing!

  9. The first one sounds like a bad situation all around. Those were some very hurtful words!

    The second one sounds like quite a mystery indeed!

    1. Gerard finished HOME FRONT and said it's really good. I'll be reading it too. His review of it will be up Thursday and my review of GONE will be up tomorrow. It's mysterious all right!

  11. Nice teasers! If the math teacher also disappeared, does that get the narrator out of math class? Hmm, I wish that happened when I was in school!! LoL
